Benefits of Barre

Barre 2 It may look like ballet training, but it's not! Conducted at a ballet barre, this class combines elements of ballet, pilates and yoga. Barre classes rely mainly on your bodyweight for resistance and the moves challenge your core stability and balance. This workout is designed to achieve a ‘dancers body’ – strong and lean. This is a great class for improving body tone, posture, endurance and body awareness. Here are our favourite reasons to try a Barre class:
  • Hard on muscles, kind on joints... small, controlled movements reduce pressure on your joints, tendons, ligaments and spine, eliminating stress on the body. Barre focuses on correct form and alignment to improve your posture and core strength, give you a taller appearance and reduce the risk of injury.
  • No experience required... Larni will guide you through the movements - you don't need any dance training to enjoy a Barre class. You can move at your own level of ability and pace.
  • Modifications for every age and level... Start with small movements and build your range of motion to suit your specific needs, whether you’re just starting out or looking for more of a challenge.
  • Increased flexibility... you'll improve your flexibility and strength through focused stretching.

All levels

These classes have been specifically designed to allow participants to work at their own intensity level, with the ability to modify all exercises according to their own personal fitness.


A person new to training or an individual with below average fitness levels can be termed as a beginner. These classes are also suitable for those returning to exercise after a break/injury.


A person training at intermediate level should have a fair amount of base fitness and coordination and thus can be exposed to a higher intensity workout.


At an advanced level, the participant should have experience in subjecting themselves to high intensity training on a regular basis. Every person starting off as a beginner should aspire to reach this level.

Online booking is available for members for classes, activities and spa treatments.
Non-members can book our spa treatments online, and please call 01983 766222 to book classes or activities.
