On Monday, Barre Bee Fit Ann Arbor is introducing a new class category: Yogi Barre, a class that incorporates yoga and barre movements. Yoga is the perfect complement to barre classes; it already utilizes the mind-body connection that is so important in every Barre Bee Fit class.
The practice of yoga has many benefits, quite a few of them shared with benefits of barre classes, such as:
- increased flexibility
- using your own body weight to increase strength and tone muscles
- better posture
Yet yoga also has unique advantages, such as:
- focus on breathing
- mental clarity and relaxation
- heart health
Practicing yoga lowers blood pressure and slows the heart rate, thereby promoting heart health. Further studies are being done to see whether yoga can help people with heart disease. It has also been suggested that yoga increases circulation.
Overall, yoga promotes good health, makes you feel better, and will be a great addition to the barre classes currently being offered at Barre Bee Fit. What do you like about taking yoga classes? And have you signed up yet for one of the new Yogi Barre classes?
