Barre Motion has officially opened its doors, and they're kicking off their South Beach run with free classes through Sunday, June 8! All classes are held in the morning for now, however next week they'll be expanding their schedule. If you get hooked after your first class, the studio is offering a Gilt deal through Friday, June 6. The workout, which mixes up ballet, yoga and Pilates, is not for the faint of muscle so make sure you're mentally prepared for a killer workout.
As for the space, they've nixed classic wooden floors for marble. Yes, real marble flooring. Ballet buns aren't required, however socks with grip bottoms are and you can buy them in the boutique there. The only bad thing about this off-Lincoln location? You'll be tempted to grand jeté over to Yardbird after class.
