Barre Pilates (sometimes called “Barre Fusion”) introduces signature moves that are informed by ballet conditioning and dance movements. Isometric contractions, where we hold the body in challenging poses such as Plank or single-leg balances, are ideal, functional moves for men and women, at every age.

How barre differs from Pilates: “Barre focuses on small, isometric movements that are based in ballet,” says Hannah, who also teaches Peloton Pilates. “Pilates focuses less on the extremities and more on finding your centre and drawing out the length in your body.

The truth is, barre workouts are hard. The challenge is largely due to the fact that they target muscles in specific ways that aren’t necessarily used in everyday movement.
