BarreCore has been the practice trend of last year, and judging by the wave of classes emerging all over London – it looks like it will stay here.
If you've never heard of it, Barrecore is a revolutionary training that combines traditional ballet barre exercises with other dance techniques.
Using your own body weight as resistance, the high energy, low impact classes quickly provide fantastic results and are ideal for toning the body instead of inflating it.
His success here in the UK is due to only one woman – Niki Rein founder of Barre Core and protégé of Tracy Anderson (the fitness guru responsible for Gwyneth Paltrow's polished figure).
Together with people like Vogue and Grazia I am a big fan of Niki – and luckily she is also a big fan of Pai!
You can now pick up Pai skincare products from the Barre Core studio on Kings Road, Chelsea. I would recommend the Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator for quick cleaning and freshening up after a hard session.
If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, Nicola and Flo from our marketing and PR team thought the following about their first class:
"My dance (and ballet!) Skills are pretty poor or nonexistent, so I was concerned about the dance aspect of the class. Fortunately, it was less dance and more small but oh so powerful movements that were inspired by ballet.
Amazingly, I didn't feel too much pain after class – instead, I felt energized. I am very interested in trying one again! "
"I've tried a few Barre courses, but Niki's techniques and expertise were on a whole different level!
Barre classes focus on strength, and Niki really motivates you to test yourself to your limits without going too far.
Unlike Flo, I definitely felt it the next day – but in a good way! The back of my arms and shoulders immediately felt more defined and my core was definitely narrower. "
