The Bar Method Newport Beach is a boutique fitness studio offering barre classes for students of all levels. The signature method uses your own body weight, the ballet barre and a few props to create a transformative workout that results in long, lean sculpted muscles. Not only does it reshape your entire body, but it allows you to channel your inner strength and leave class feeling strong, confident and poised.
Highly-trained instructors customize the exercises to ensure they are safe and effective for any age and everybody, including modifications for pregnant women and students with injuries.
"The Secret Sauce"
It’s well known that ballet and barre classes help to develop correct everyday posture, improving balance and coordination.
However, “The secret sauce” is combining the lengthened, vertical spine and square hips, with the smallest leg movements for a natural resistance that will sculpt and shape your body in a way you could only imagine in your dreams!
Danielle Duley Owner of Bar Method Newport Beach has been a passionate member of The Bar Method community for over ten years and someone who saw transformative results in her own body. She felt compelled to bring this multifaceted workout experience back to the area and opened Bar Method Newport Beach this November 2019!
Take a class with Jessica Rennison!
Jessica Rennison is an amazing instructor at Bar Method Newport Beach, who plays fun upbeat music and will quickly learn your name. She keeps her students honest by making sure they are in the right posture and not skipping a beat. Jessica is motivating and leaves you feeling strong like you can take on the world when you leave her class!
I highly recommend you try her class if you want a great workout and to feel like you belong there.
5 moves you can do it at home!
These moves are great for strengthening your muscles in between your barre classes or when you cant make it into the studio, however I highly recommend going to a class to ensure the proper form and movement so you don’t get hurt. A good instructor should be able to move your leg ever so slightly and you’ll get a totally different workout. So again make sure you get into the studio for a class and then practice these inbetween 🙂
- Single leg extensions holding the back of your chair. Start by doing x25 on each leg. Do 3 sets
2. Put your heels together and toes out into a plie while pressing up onto your toes. Do this 30 times, take a break and then do two more rounds
3. Inside outside leg sweeps holding the back of a chair
4. Plie position squats and bicep curls. start by doing x20, rest and then 2 more sets.
5. Sit in a straddle position in the floor and walk your arms out for a deep stretch. Set a timer for a 3 minute hold and breath. You’ll need to do 3 sets of 3 minutes to make progress you can see and feel.
Why I love The Method
I have been taking barre classes on and off for about 10 years! I don’t love high intensity workouts and don’t love dripping in sweat either, so it’s important I find a workout I actually enjoy but still get results!
For me barre class is an amazing workout. The classes are challenging and never boring. It’s fun to work out here because you are always encouraged to improve your form and work harder. I also love that everyone knows my name and takes a personal interest in me.
