New Barre Concept Classes with Rebecca Cullinane

Rebecca NewBarre Concept at Freestyle 360

This unique workout combines the elements of Pilates, yoga, resistance training and ballet into a highly effective regime performed on the mat and at a ballet barre. The technique utilises the body’s own resistance in conjunction with weights, bands and small balls. The effect is a long, lean dancers body without being a dancer!

The low impact, total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs, flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an interval training approach that burns fat and improves cardiovascular fitness. Posture, flexibility, stamina and core strength improve. The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently.

Stretches are performed after each strength section of the class to ensure the muscles are re-lengthened to create a body that is strong without the added bulk of other regimes. This workout is suitable for everybody as various modifications are given throughout the class to suit the abilities of all students.

360 Body Control Pilates with Rebecca Cullinane

 

Please get in touch to find out when the next course starts!

Rebecca NewI qualified as a Pilates instructor in 2005, I am an accredited member of body control Pilates, and a REPS Level 4 instructor. In addition to group classes for the general public I am able to offer private lessons to clients who wish to enhance their athletic performance or those who have specific conditions that would benefit from a one to one approach. I am also qualified as a specialist instructor for low back pain.

Body control Pilates is suitable for everyone, whatever your fitness level, age or gender. Pilates is slow, controlled and precise method of exercise which combines elements of yoga, ballet, martial arts and gymnastics.

Sometimes, due to poor posture, the muscles around certain joints in the body, in particular the shoulders and hips, can become weak, or too tight. This can mean that the joint is not as stable as it should be, or that the way that the bones articulate within the joint is unbalanced. Pilates focuses on exercising the muscles that are responsible for keeping our joints stable and well aligned. By working these deep postural muscles while maintaining correct postural alignment, we can help strengthen the muscles that stabilise the joints. This can, in turn, reduce the level of wear and tear that joint receives and help to protect the joints from injury.

Pilates will help you to become more aware of your own posture and how to work towards improving it, both during your activities of daily living, or your regular sports.

I have gained comprehensive experience in some of the main styles of Hatha yoga (Ashtanga/Seasonal Flow/traditional Hatha Yoga/etc), as well as Yoga for special circumstances, including chair Yoga for seniors, pre-natal and children’s yoga.I recognise that every person coming to my yoga class is different, and everyone has their own reasons for coming.
