BalleCore BARRE PILATES® How is BalleCore BARRE PILATES® different from other popular ‘barre’ programs?  

BalleCore BARRE Pilates® takes the essential idea of using a stick or dowel with Pilates exercises and forms it into a new way to approach traditional repertoire Pilates mat work in an intelligent, fresh and imaginative mat class.

Using the BalleCore Barre® continuously throughout the class helps to enhance shoulder and torso/core alignment and stability in a way that may clarify Pilates concepts and Principles. Tone your arms, shoulders and back with proper wrist/elbow/shoulder alignment.    

•    BalleCore BARRE PILATES® is the original and only barre program that is purely Pilates-based and uses the patented BalleCore Barre created by Molly Weeks.
•    BalleCore® and BalleCore BARRE PILATES® sessions are not scripted, corporate classes.  Using specific guidelines, Pilates teachers use their own creativity and ingenuity to design classes for their students and clients
•    A certified BalleCore BARRE PILATES® instructor must be a certified Pilates Mat teacher (in accordance with training standards set by the Pilates Method Alliance*), who has been trained in all protocols to safely and effectively interpret Pilates exercises with the BalleCore Barre.  Though we use the authentic BalleCore Barre®, this program is not endorsed, nor discouraged by BalleCore, LLC.

BalleCore-Barre-Yoga®.  Ever wonder why you can balance on your left foot but not your right, or vice versa?  BalleCore-Barre-Yoga® takes Yoga Asanas from beginner to advanced levels and from the the mat-to-standing in a way that is unique and refreshing.  Developed by Playhouse Pilates owner, Charlyn d’Anconia, this program uses Pilates concepts with Yoga asanas in a way that makes sense to our body-mind to enhance alignment, symmetry, balance, tone and movement comprehension.  Though we use the authentic BalleCore Barre®, this program is not endorsed, nor discouraged by BalleCore, LLC.

All BalleCore® classes, sessions and workshops are booked by appointment or on a Studio seminar basis only.  Ask us about our unique and effective suite of BalleCore® programs!  playhousepilates@gmail.com
