Many women have memories of participating in dance classes as young girls. Now you can rekindle those childhood memories while improving your strength and fitness at Smart Barre, which recently opened its second San Antonio studio in the Alon Town Centre shopping center.
Originating in Fort Worth, Smart Barre is a women’s only studio that focuses on proper postural alignment and isometric movements that create fatigue in muscle groups important to women: arms, thighs, seat and abdominals. The Smart Barre technique provides a fullbody workout that concentrates on movements that strengthen and lengthen muscles. Classes incorporate a mixture of ballet principles, Pilates and yoga to target specific body areas. Participants even use a traditional ballet “barre” during specific movements.
Smart Barre studios are located in Alamo Heights at 6426 N. New Braunfels (210-822-0584) and Alon Town Centre, 10003 NW Military (210-492-2690).
