It became a wonderful source of physical and mental strength, and helped me create a new type of bond with myself, my body and my baby – giving me the idea to start Barre & Baby.
A stronger, more flexible and healthier body can help you to have an easier labour and quicker recovery. Your unborn baby also benefits, with her foetal cardiac system growing stronger and healthier as a result of Barre & Baby workouts.
I design the classes to achieve:
This is why I created Barre & Baby to not only support you physically, but mentally. Every class carries a theme – such as ‘Flexibility’ or ‘Balance’ – and we explore what this theme means for your body and mind.
As you dance, you’ll also be creating a deep bond with your baby, whether she’s waiting to be born or worn in a sling. During pregnancy, her senses start to develop very early on, and at 14 weeks she can already hear. Once she arrives, she’ll find the gentle movements and classical music of Barre & Baby soothing and relaxing. In fact, I find my classes send many babies fast asleep!
Barre & Baby is a physical workout, a space to let the mind settle and the heart soar. The classes are well-structured, safe and enjoyable and Elisa is a warm and welcoming teacher.
