Q&A about Gentle Yoga Barre
What is Gentle Yoga Barre?
Gentle Yoga Barre routines address fitness in 3 dimensions- cardio, strength, balance- in a safe, fun and efficient way. You will have a number of stations with assigned exercises. We manage the intensity by the resistance used for the exercises and the time ratio for the work and rest intervals.
Can I combine a yoga class with Cardio and Strength Training?
YES! Adding a 50 minute workout to your yoga practice can double your benefits.
WHO should add Cardio, Balance and Strength Training to their yoga practice?
*Most people who practice at home or attend 1 or more Gentle yoga classes a week can add GYB before or after doing yoga.
