Core Barre™

Core Barre™ is a system of SMART MOVEMENT™  that promotes high energy, low impact, and fat burning movements based on elements of Pilates, classical ballet, and athletic conditioning. Core Barre™ follows concepts of stabilization to create effective and safe movement where body strength and awareness are increased as well as joint flexibility, proper posture, stability, and form.

Bike & Barre and 20/20/20

Bike & Barre and 20/20/20 combo classes are one hour sessions that begin in the indoor cycle studio and move to the infrared heated studio. During the Bike & Barre class, you will cycle for 30 minutes and move to a heated barre class for 30 minutes. During the 20/20/20 class you will cycle for 20 minutes, strength train in the infrared heat for 20 minutes and finish with 20 minutes of infrared heated core conditioning.

Yoga at the DB

Infrared Heated Classes

The Downtown Barre is the original infrared heated studio in Eastern North Carolina. Infrared heat is the NEW way to practice yoga and core classes in a heated environment. Unlike a typical hot yoga class that uses blown air to heat the room, our infrared heaters use an emitted heat to give you a pleasant, warm experience that will exhilarate you rather than drain you.
The primary difference in infrared heat verses a typical heat is that infrared heats objects before it heats the air. This is what causes your body to heat up and enable you to work at your peak performance.

Infrared heat has many benefits that include:

  • Detoxification
  • Improved Circulation
  • Improved Flexibility
  • Weight Loss
  • Pain Relief
  • Skin Clarity

Make sure to bring your own mat, sweat towel and plenty of water.
