ABOUT ONLINE BARRE/CARDIO/BELLY DANCE PROGRAM - No Longer on MOXIE.XYZ! Sign up on Patreon or fill out the Form.

Enjoy well-balanced workouts with personalized approach and attention from your instructor in a mini-group setting. These workouts include proper warm-up, cardio work, full body exercises and stretches targeting specific muscular groups. Barre has elements of ballet, yoga and pilates. It is a relatively safe type of activity that anyone can do, however please consult your physician if you have any health concerns or special condition(s) that prevent you from working out. Modify and/or challenge each exercise based on your needs and desires. Modifications and challenges are provided throughout the classes to intensify or simplify your practice. Gain cardio strength, muscular endurance and overall flexibility, focusing on breathing and deep stretches at the same time. These classes are very well-balanced and are pretty intense. They are great for building overall strength and cardio endurance as they are faster pace full body workouts. They last somewhere from 20 to 40 minutes. You will feel strong and refreshed after each workout. The more you practice, the more comfortable it becomes. Various options to purchase monthly subscriptions are available for better value on Moxie. Gain strength, muscular endurance and flexibility under the supervision of your instructor and be a member of a wonderful community.

Have fun and modify your class!

Respect your limits. Start slow and challenge gradually. I don't want you to force yourself and then miss classes because you've pulled a muscle. 🥺 A little discomfort is O'K, but please avoid harsh pain. Back off a little bit from the pose or stretches the moment you feel something is wrong. Regularity and self-discipline are keys to success in any activity. Stay focused on your goals and eventually you will get to them. 🤗 😇 🥳

Barre is a great fitness activity that combines the elements of of pilates, yoga and ballet. It includes the elements of all three activities. Don't be scared! 😁There are some postures and terminology coming from ballet, however it's in many ways easier than ballet, it's much lower impact on your joints. Barre classes are great for former ballet dancers with knee and ankle injuries.

Suffering the consequences of unsafe group fitness classes from various gyms (I have a knee injury), I find barre a great alternative for ballet and any high impact workout. Over time if practiced regularly in addition to becoming stronger it can help to release the headaches, improve the function of a digestive system, overall posture and spinal alignment.

During the workout we mainly use our own body as a resistance with the goal to strengthen the body, improve the balance by using correct postures and alignment.

The beauty of this activity is that anyone can do it: a dancer, a football player, a runner, and just a sports enthusiast who wants to keep fit, tone his/her muscles and be healthy. All of these people can benefit from this low-impact full body workout and/or complement it with other fitness activities. You don't need to have any fitness background to participate in barre, just remember to take it slow with control and be patient with yourself, listen to your body.

You can determine how much intensity and pressure you want do add to each exercise by challenging yourself or modifying (simplifying). Your instructor provides both options throughout the classes and it's totally up to you how hard you want to go.

ABOUT YOGA/PILATES PROGRAM - No longer on MOXIE.XYZ!

Yoga means UNION! It is a union of soul, spirit, body and mind. Through breath work and gentle yoga flows (asana) and effective Pilates exercises we reach peace and balance within. You will feel well-rested and stretched out after each class. You can do them alone or for best results combine them with my Barre/Cardio/Belly Dance Program.

BALL FIT Balance Fitness Training - BRAND NEW FORMAT at Elena's Barre!


Did you know that our well-being depends on how well we can stand on both feet?

When we work on our Balance we engage all the muscles from head to toes. With age you notice that people tend to lose their balance. They become more prone to falling down and injuries. This small daily routine will help you to regain your strength and control over your body and mind. I won't lie to you: it's quite challenging to stand on both feet on an unstable surface and try to do small movements. BUT, it's VERY EFFECTIVE and a LOT of FUN!!! All your efforts will be compensated with better stability, strength and more balanced body. Also, our body and mind are very connected. Once you develop stability in your physical body, your mind will catch up and you will notice that you become more tranquil, happy and well-balanced... I am looking forward to seeing you in these classes. The space is limited for quality and safety reasons. So, do not miss the opportunity to take care of your body and mind! ;-)

RESTORATIVE FOAM ROLLER CLASS every Friday - No Longer on MOXIE.XYZ

Regardless of the fitness activity you practice it is essential for overall wellbeing to do a restorative class at least once a week. This class will help you to restore tight and sore muscles after hard work, recover and release lactic acid and toxins out of the body. Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day when you do foam roller stretches. Consult your doctor before doing drainage self-massage and a foam roller class. You practice all of the classes and programs at Elena's Barre at your own risk and discretion. Be mindful with your body and avoid harsh pain, back off immediately when you experience pain and severe discomfort. We use the foam roller for rolling and massaging the tight spots. This class can also help you improve your overall flexibility and performance in other fitness activities. Do it at least once a week and you should notice the difference.
