Barre Benefits: Mood Booster & Confidence Builder
July 1, 2018
In this last post of our series about the benefits of barre, lets examine the intangible benefits that encapsulate the notion of “graceful strength” and specifically the graceful inner strength of someone who is centered, composed, and empowered. Keep reading to learn how The Bar Method and its supportive environment will boost your mood and build your confidence.
Close your eyes and think about the last time you walked out of the studio after taking class. That feeling of peacefulness, contentment, happiness, and strength isn’t your imagination. All of that shaking you did in class builds muscle endurance and releases endorphins, boosting your mood, and making you feel like a million bucks! Endorphins are considered natural painkillers because they activate opioid receptors in the brain that help minimize discomfort and bring about feelings of euphoria and general well-being. So, next time you’re shaking through a set of parallel thigh or fold over, remember what you’re working for and how you’ll feel after. It’s so worth it!
Our manifesto starts with “together we inspire” and we mean it. Every individual in the studio (staff, instructors, owners, and clients) contributes to the supportive environment that make up The Bar Method. We welcome students of any experience level. Everyone and every body type is welcome – women, men, all ages, expecting mothers, we adjust the workout so it’s suitable for everyone. Instructors will provide inspiration and encouragement throughout class and your fellow students will comfort you along the path to mastery. The acknowledgement and support from this welcoming environment is sure to enhance your mood and leave you feeling energized and looking forward to your next session.
We believe the grit and grace built from the inside-out is as important as the long and lean muscles presented on the outside. At The Bar Method, we strive to push you past the surface to get our students to realize results that are not all physical. Instructors find creative ways to get the very best from students, pushing past boundaries, and replacing doubts with a newly found sense of grace and poise. The undeniable physical changes that result from the method helps students to recognize the strength they have always held within themselves. This acknowledgement has the power to shift self-confidence in a profound way.
Elevate your focus and look beyond the burn to reach that breakthrough that will leave you feeling poised, centered, and composed after every class. Ready, set, glow!
