The barre method has quickly become a favorite among workout enthusiasts.  The Barre workout utilizes a combination of postures regularly practiced in yoga and pilates along with some exercises performed with the use of a ballet barre (hence the name).  The benefits of barre are endless, but most people go for the thin sculpting effect and incredible help with posture and balance!  Barre studios have been popping up all over the place, so we’ve collected a few of our favorites in the Irvine area where you can sweat and sculpt!
