Lengthen, strengthen, align and tone your body with ballet and Pilates inspired exercises on the floor. No ballet or dance experience required!
Traditionally, ballerinas take floor barre classes to better understand their alignment and improve their dancing skills. It's also used for ballerinas in recovery from injuries. Doing these exercises on the floor improves posture and body awareness in turn improving any work done standing.
It's also great for people with injuries and the elderly or anyone else who doesn't have great balance!
You also do not need a lot of equipment. A yoga mat is advised for comfort, a theraband to assist with stretching and a yoga block to help with a neutral posture. But none of these are essential.
Boogie Bounce is a complete exercise programme performed on a mini trampoline with Patented T-Bar Handle. The programme consists of a highly effective H.I.I.T cardio section followed by a toning section, working bums, tums and thighs. Every muscle in the body is worked, even the FACIAL MUSCLES!
You can also develop both upper and lower body strength just as effectively as weight lifting without the strain or threat of pulled or torn muscles.
