Question of the Week

Will I plateau in barre?

Answer (from Paula): No.  I’ve heard numerous times in class that the workout seems to get harder the more classes students take, and I agree completely!  A very common question is “Will this get any easier?”  While the positions are challenging from the start, as you start to master the form, it’s easier to understand how to engage your muscles in a deeper way, and how to engage (or ignore!) your mind’s cues as you experience the deep burning of your muscles that signifies you getting stronger.  Students thereby develop a craving for not only the physical results they see emerge from their hard work, but the mental challenge and emotional boost they get from committing and conquering a series.
