Pulse & Roll (Barre & Foam Rolling)
In this combo class, you will do 30 minutes of Barre followed by 30 mins of Roll & Recover.
Our Barre programming is designed to: Develop balance, strength and stability throughout the body; build lean muscles throughout the core, legs and upper body; increase muscular endurance; and improve balance and flexibility.
In Roll & Recover, you will use foam rollers, massage balls, and yoga straps to lengthen and loosen your tissues so that you can perform better in class and move with more ease in life.
The techniques used in Roll & Recover are a form of Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) in which you apply pressure to an area of soft tissue (muscle and fascia) to stimulate circulation of blood and oxygen, and restore length of tissues.
Benefits of foam rolling/SMR:
- Increased blood flow
- Better range of motion
- Restoring muscle-length balance across joints
- Increased circulation for faster recovery
- Breaking up scar tissue and contusions
- Relieving pain, soreness, stiffness
- Increasing flexibility which leads to lengthened muscles and a higher power threshold
- More effective workouts
