Haute Barre Student of the Month-Ashley

Haute Student of the Month: Ashley

Each month we talk with one of our students so they can share their experience with others.  This month we’re chatting with Ashley.

What do you love most about Haute Barre?

I love the welcoming feeling when you enter the studio.  I also love how inspiring the Haute Barre instructors are, the music that they choose helps motivate us to work harder.

What is the biggest change you have noticed?

I have been going to Haute Barre now for almost 5 years and have noticed the most change in my arms. I also feel stronger in my core and legs as well.

What is your favorite part of class?

My favorite part of class is the abdominal work toward the end.  I feel sore the next day, so I know that it is working.

What part of class do you love to hate?

I love to hate the water ski position.  It burns so much, but it’s a good burn.

If you could describe Haute Barre using 3 words, what would they be?

Friendly, intense, and addictive.

What advice would you give to someone taking their first barre class?

Don’t worry if you can’t do all of the moves, do your best and modify as needed.
