After devoting much of her time to kung fu from ages five to eighteen, Erin was a bored gym-goer in search of a more satisfying workout until she discovered her love of Pilates and barre. Roll ups and pliés have successfully replaced kicks and punches as her favorite fitness regimen, and she is currently pursuing her comprehensive Pilates certification through Balanced Body.
Originally from the Boston suburbs, Erin has lived in DC and Boston since college, and she's excited to call North Carolina home. She has a B.A. and M.A. from Georgetown, and when not in the studio, you can generally find her planning her next international trip. Italy (along with Pilates and barre) is the key to her heart.
Erin instructs the following:
A traditional 60 minute barre format which includes warm-up, arms, thigh, seat, core work and stretching. All levels are welcome in this class, as our knowledgeable instructors will demonstrate modifications applicable to beginner, intermediate and advanced students. This is your HEAD to Toe solution for building strength and getting all your muscles humming!
Based on the Barre Absolute class but with a little more hot sauce! Generally keeping the light weights and other resistance equipment in play beyond the arm segment. You will be lead through some longer sets and challenging combinations working thighs, booty and core. Always have the option to lower weights and use body resistance. This 60 minute class will increase both your strength and stamina while keeping your body long and lean with proven barre stretches. All levels welcome.
