As Barre instructors, it’s important to teach a well-rounded class for your students. Including core strengthening exercises can be a key element to offering a balanced class.  The core is not just your abdominals. In order to have a truly strong core, you need to strengthen the muscles of the back and side body in conjunction with your beloved abdominal work. This focused workshop will dive deep into the core muscles and teach you how to efficiently and effectively create balance in the exercises you teach for better alignment, postural strength and efficiency of movement.
