EXPLORE! Barre classes start up again in July

EXPLORE! Barre classes start up again in July

Barre is a unique combination of ballet barre work, core conditioning, and muscle strengthening that utilizes yoga, Pilates, and orthopedic exercise with hands-on training.

The focus is on alignment and strength that results in better posture, better movement, and a better you! This one-hour class will help build proper alignment, strengthen the muscles to support that alignment, and leave you feeling strong and successful. Never stale, the ever-evolving mix of movement is always fresh, fun, and challenging.

The Barre technique is low-impact, protecting your joints by avoiding any bouncing or jumping. Each strength section of the workout ends with stretching to create long, lean muscles without bulk. The Barre technique works to defy gravity by tapering everything in and lifting it up! You get a total workout with your body sculpted, mind sharpened, motivation heightened, and attitude transformed!

Instructor: Tarra Sachedina found The Dailey Method when it first came to Arizona and was drawn immediately to the balance of deep muscle work, alignment and flexibility that The Dailey Method offered. As a yoga instructor since 2006 and a student and teacher with The Dailey Method since 2009, Tarra is a trained observer and educator in body alignment, posture and fitness. She is passionate about all aspects of the mind, body and soul and joyfully shares her insights and wisdom on total mind and body health. The Dailey Method allows her the time and space to strengthen her body while being super attentive to her alignment.

  1. Can we use the bar without a class.?

  2. Multimedia says:

    Hello Nan, you can use the bar in the Fitness on Demand group fitness room any time there is not a scheduled class, i.e. for the Explore! program going on in there. Check in with the monitor at RHJ Fitness and you’ll be on your way!

  3. John Haaheim says:

    So 24 classes through September are $50? Sounds like a bargain.

  4. Barbara Elliott says:

    Can you include a short video so we can determine our ability to participate in the class?

  5. Multimedia says:

    I’ve asked Tamra Stark to try to find one Barbara, watch this space.

  6. Dawn Humay says:

    Hello Dawn, you must either be a Sun City West rec card holder, OR come as a guest of someone who is. If you have other questions, you can give Tamra Stark a call at 623-544-6194.
