Lumos Barre

 

While barre has its origins in ballet, no dance experience is needed, and all levels of fitness experience are welcome in this class. Alternating between standing at the barre and mat-based exercises, our barre class consists of low impact/high repetition movements, with small isometric exercises to sculpt your arms, abdominals, and legs. Our barre instructors also use a variety of props (including light hand weights, resistance bands, soft exercise balls, and pilates rings) so no two classes are the same!

Grip socks are required for all barre classes. For all Barre Classes and Mat Pilates, we use specialized pilates mats which we provide for each class.

Lunch at the Barre

 

Grab your lunch at the barre - at Lumos! Some of us (ahem) just cannot get out of bed in the morning for a pre-work class, and sometimes we struggle to find the motivation after work.

Which brings us to lunch - we've condensed our regular barre class down to 45 minutes, so you can get a workout in during the lunch hour. Plus, it's way more fun than eating lunch at your desk while taking a Buzzfeed quiz to determine Which Possible Illuminati Member You are...

Barre Wit Cardio

 

Looking to mix up your Barre with a little dance-based cardio? Then this the class for you! This class incorporates classic ballet moves (including some jumping), but don't worry - no previous dance experience needed.

Barre wit cardio begins on the mat with some classic strengthening for your core, booty and legs, then it takes you to the Barre. At the Barre you will get your classic Barre burn with bursts of cardio, a strength-building arm sequence and dance to get your heart rate up while you sweat and smile. This is a higher impact class but there are always options provided to take it down a notch and still get your sweat on.

Mat Pilates

 

Mat Pilates focuses on lengthening and strengthening your body, primarily using the muscles of the core, which span from your hips to your shoulders.  Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s, the methodology borrows from disciplines such as dance, yoga and classic calisthenics.  The Mat Pilates series of exercise is normally performed with just your body and a mat for cushioning and support. In this class we will use a mat and some equipment, such as a ball, ring or weights which are optional and selected on a class per class basis. It's fun and it will make you feel taller and stronger! 

For Mat Pilates and all barre classes, we use specialized pilates mats which we provide for each class.
