Holistic health studio Barre Body is a breath of fresh air. From the moment I entered the space a feeling of calmness came over me – from the kind and welcoming staff to the complimentary herbal tea on offer, it is the small thoughtful details that makes Barre Body stand out from the exercise crowd.

The white luxurious interior is complimented by the vast windows that let in the Brisbane sun. The greenery scattered around the studio create an aesthetic that could make anybody want to work out. Barre Body offers a range of dynamic classes that will leave you feeling strong, sweaty and accomplished. The studio promotes goals such as #mindfultransformation and #killerworkout that encourage participants to look beyond the physical aspect of exercising but to also focus on improving overall wellbeing.

Barre Body has two locations in Brisbane, Newstead and the CBD. All of the sessions I attended were challenging yet accommodating to all ability levels, which created a really welcoming experience. The signature barre class focuses on dynamic toning, but don’t be fooled by this graceful workout- the burn is real, and it delivers powerful results to prove it. For those wanting to raise their heart rate try the Barre cardio class on Saturday morning at the CBD studio with the lovely Lillian Rowe, the endorphins that follow will leave you seriously euphoric. A highlight class is definitely ‘Elements’, the unique choreographed blend features full body cardio, toning and stretching. Each class ends with mindfulness that is a perfect complement to the stresses of everyday life.

The community spirit and supportive energy make for an experience that is truly memorable. For those seeking a unique workout that will not only sculpt your body into ballet form but nourish your mind, don’t look any further than Barre Body.
