Cardio Flow Barre
With Leslie Piekarski
Do you want a cardio challenge without all the jumping? Do you want to raise your heart rate without using any props? Do you want a workout that feels as fun as dancing but doesn’t require years of ballet training?! Look no further! Cardio Flow Barre to the rescue!
This class involves learning 4 short sequences move by move and slowly building them up and putting them together. Once you’ve worked through it all on one side, even out your body and test your brain as you go through it all on the other side. Put both sides together for a grand finale worthy of a standing ovation! No props and minimal space required. A perfect vigorous workout for when you’re on the go, traveling, or just need to sweat it out!
The entire workout is completed standing so can be considered for the prenatal population who have a moderate baseline level of aerobic fitness and are not experiencing any medical complications. Modify by reducing the range of motion and stop exercising if experiencing pain or significant discomfort. As this class is longer in duration, take breaks as needed.
*This class should be avoided by postnatal populations for the first 12 weeks and can be considered once aerobic exercise has been reintroduced. Always consult your medical practitioner to determine what kind of exercise if appropriate for you.
