What makes Barreworks classes different from other barre or fitness classes?

Our classes are like no other fitness class! Each session is a total body workout set to upbeat music in an energetic group setting. Proper breath combined with movement direction, exceptional instructor cueing & optional modifications are provided to promote safe & effective exercise. Each class concentrates on controlled movements that sculpt the thighs, tone & firm the glutes, flatten the abdominals, & define the arms. Therapeutic stretching is incorporated after each intense working section to complement a total body workout.

The Barreworks technique was developed by a team of local Toronto dance & fitness professionals. What we teach is unique to our studio, non-franchised, and 100% Canadian!


Can I drop-in for class? Or should I pre-register?

While walk-ins are welcome, we cannot guarantee you a place in class without pre-registration, as our classes have a tendency to fill-up in advance. We strongly suggest that you pre-register & pay online, in order to reserve your spot. Click here to do so now!
