What is on at The Stable Wellness?
WHAT IS BARRE?
Barre is a fusion of ballet, Pilates, strength training and yoga designed to challenge and work every single muscle in the body. You can expect a series of fat burning moves, from leg lengtheners and plies, to booty burners and scorching core sequences.
One of the main reasons we love barre is that although it is a seriously good workout and you will quickly see results if you stick with it, all the sequences are low impact and designed to protect and strengthen your joints. There will not be a jumping jack or burpee in sight!
Benefits you can expect from barre:
* Better balance
* A stronger core
* Improved posture
* Increased flexibility
* Reduced stress levels
* Greater muscular strength
* Enhanced cardiovascular performance
Barre will suit any fitness level, it is not a dance class and no dance experience is necessary. The most important thing is just to come along and have some fun. We promise you will leave with a smile on your face!
We look forward to welcoming you to the barre.
(B) - Suitable for beginners
This class is a high intensity, high tempo barre blast. We move quickly from one move to another to build up a sweat. Think Legs, Bums & Tums style, based on the lengthening moves of barre, with some boxing and other cardiovascular movements thrown in for good measure!
Barre Classic (B)
The class is a slow and mindful barre class based on alignment, flexibility and posture - all done to a backdrop of beautiful classical music. This is an excellent class if you are new to barre, returning from an injury or looking for a slower yet still challenging and effective style of workout.
Barre Fitness (B)
This is our signature class and an all time favourite with our customers. We tend to use more equipment such as light dumbbells, resistance bands and pilates balls. It is a full body strength based barre class with a strong core strengthening focus. Using high repetitions and small ranges of movement, you will work every muscle. Get ready to shake as you work Arms, Bums, Legs & Tums!
Barre 45 (B)
This class takes inspiration from all of our different Barre Class styles and is the workout that makes an appearance during the school holidays when people are a little shorter on time or attend less frequently. This is the perfect class to come and along to get a feel for barre as you will get to try it all!
WHAT IS YOGA?
Yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body. It incorporates breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to encourage relaxation and reduce stress.
One of the reasons we love yoga so much is that it is often the only time when our customers give themselves permission to fully relax and be present. Yoga serves as the perfect antidote to often busy and stress-filled life.
If you have never tried yoga before then we really encourage you to get in touch to see how it can help you.
Benefits you can expect from yoga are:
* Stress relief
* Deeper sleep
* Emotional healing
* Increased mobility
* Stillness of the mind
* Improved joint health
* Better organ function
You couldn't find a more beautiful spot to try yoga than The Stable. The beauty, peace and tranquility, under our twinkly wooden beams has to be experienced firsthand to understand!
We look forward to welcoming you to the mat.
(B) - Suitable for beginners
Yoga Power Flow
Yoga Power Flow is a fast-paced cardiovascular workout focused on building strength and flexibility in the body through high-impact Vinyaya Yoga postures and flows. You will need to be know your Chaturangas from your Warriors - this class will welcome anyone looking to advance their yoga practice.
Yoga Slow (B)
The class is a slow and soulful yoga class centred on stretching deeper connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons and deep fascia. With slow steady Hatha stretches and longer Yin holds, this class is all about relaxation and sending you home for a deep restful slumber.
Yoga with Merry (B)
In Merry's Words "I am a great fan of feeling calm and peace. Both in my mind and body. Also I like fun and lightness. Yoga gives me all of this. If you want to be lighter on your feet, clearer in the mind and calmer in your heart , you are very welcome to join us for Yoga at The Stable. I offer a mix of Hatha and Hatha Flow and, from time to time, a session of deeply relaxing Yin"
Yoga 45 (B)
This class is based on a more traditional yoga flow combining some slower Hatha Yoga holds with more flowing Vinyasa Yoga flows. We will always end with a short relaxation. Making an appearance in school holidays, this is the perfect class to come and along to get a feel for yoga as you will get to try different styles!
