Sometimes, when we get used to doing things over and over, we let habit and automation take over and we find ourselves just going through the motions. This can happen in our exercise too. We've all had an off day where we catch ourself "going through the motions" in class, and not really connecting with what movements our body is making and why. With the 30 in 30 Challenge just underway, here is the first instalment of Barre 101! We hear this "shop" talk in every class, so here's a quick reminder of what these terms really mean:
So next time your barre tender tells you to pulse, pulse, tuck ... take a moment ... breathe in and close your eyes.
Connect with what you are doing ... engage your muscles from the inside out and feel yourself getting stronger.
