THE METHOD

Paola's BodyBarre Signature

This is our signature PBB Class – It’s dynamic, fun, and high energy (yet low impact). Our trainers will take you through an upbeat sequence that draws elements from both Pilates and ballet barre techniques, yielding incredible results. PBB Signature gets into the deeper stabilising muscles, as well as the peripheral muscles, working them to exhaustion giving you a tight, chiseled body. After just three or four sessions, you can expect lean limbs, amazing posture and a very strong core. 

Beginners-intermediate

Paola's BodyBarre Burn

Similar to our Signature class, but stepping it up a notch. This class is based on the same principles as the Signature, but with a real focus on cardio - upping your heart-rate and feeling the burn! Ideal for those looking to accelerate their workout. 

This class is fast paced and brings in elements of a HIIT class. PBB Burn will work into every muscle whilst burning up to 650 plus calories. 

Intermediate –Advanced

PBB Cardio Barre

This class is a very fast paced, high intensity routine which fuses elements of a hiit conditioning class, functional training with ballet inspired movements done both at the barre and in the centre. 

Expect this to be a fat burning, cardiovascular, muscle building workout.

Intermediate –Advanced

Paola's BodyBarre Below

Everything from the waist down! As the name suggests, this is a low-impact class that really targets those stubborn areas around the tops of your thighs and glutes. Expect to sweat and for your legs to feel the burn - a great class to get toned, sexy legs and a bottom to die for! 

Great for: A full body workout focusing on the stubborn areas around the stomach, legs and bum to give you that perfect beach physique, all year round!

Barre Dynamic Pilates Core

We have stepped up the traditional Pilates repertoire with an increase of speed and reps on the movements. To up the ante even further we also add various pieces of small equipment to the routine to increase the work load on the muscles.

Put this in conjunction with a PBB Signature Class and you have a low impact high intensity workout working you to the core. Expect to have improved posture and amazing muscle tone.

Fit Camp Ballerina

A ballerina bootcamp! This class uses ballet barre techniques to tone, strengthen, improve balance and stability and aid alignment and posture. Think plié, arabesque, relevé. Our resident ballerinas will help you get into the beautiful balletic positions allowing you to concentrate on your technique.

TRX Core

Born from exercise developed in the Navy, TRX develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. In these classes you will use a TRX Suspension Trainer (bands attached to the wall) to engage your core muscles, using your own body weight to complete multiple exercises. This workout is quite high intensity and incorporates body weight exercises, plyometrics and free-weight training. Expect to sweat and to feel like every muscle in your body has been worked to its fullest! 

Great for: Arms! And legs, bums and tums….This really is the definition of full body. You engage your core throughout the session to really tone and tighten, for perfect washboard abs. 

Boxerina

A fast paced fusion of kick boxing, boxing pad work, circuit training and barre movements. Working your entire body and improving your agility, coordination, core strength, endurance and power. Expect to burn some serious calories!

This all levels yoga class explores the whole range of yoga poses to develop strength and flexibility in equal measures. Enter into a state of moving meditation and breath which will leave you feeling energised, strong and calm.

Multi Levelled

A super relaxing, nourishing and grounding form of yoga, which holds long poses and works deep into your connective tissue. It has a powerful effect on increasing flexibility of the body, calms the mind, and stimulates energy meridans in the body. You will leave the class feeling amazing, open and light!

Testimonials

I am a real fitness fiend, have been a member of many fitness clubs around the world, and have tried many fitness methods. Without a shadow of a doubt, Paola is one of the best trainers I have come across, and her barre method is the best one I have ever tried. She is so full of energy and passion and really looks out and cares for how we do her class. Her classes are energetic, intense, varied and fun. Not only do I adore going to her class, but the results I have seen on my body are amazing - leaner longer and more toned muscles especially in the thighs, hips and bum area. I love Paola’s hot barre!

She teaches her practice to help heal, cleanse and detoxify the mind whilst challenging the entire body.
