About Us

 

Sadie Lincoln, a celebrity fitness expert and creator of barre3, combines her favorite techniques featuring a unique sequence where every second counts for fast body-shaping results, improved core strength, and long-term postural benefits.

In the Philippines, barre3 was introduced by The Spa Wellness Director, Tanya Tan after falling in love with the workout. The first barre3 studio was launched in 2008 at The Spa Wellness at the Fort, followed by Alabang in 2009. Two barre3 studios were added in 2010 located in Eastwood and Rockwell. Just recently, its fifth studio was opened in the metropolis at their The Spa Wellness TriNoma branch. Opening soon, Shangri-la and Greenhills Promenade.

The studio set-up has 3 corners of the wall with ballet barres, which is essential in the work out together with yoga mats, yoga straps, dumbbells and fit balls. The cork flooring is both soft and sturdy, which protects the spine and joints during positions.

What is Barre3

 

Our unique 3-step sequence creates the strength of an athlete with the long, lean, graceful lines of a dancer.

  1. Isometric holds to align and strengthen combined with small range of motion to get deep into the muscles until failure.
  2. Low impact dynamic movement to energize and elevate the heart rate.
  3. Seamless recovery stretch to elongate and prepare the body.

Barre3 evolves the dancer’s workout by combining the grace of the ballet barre with the wisdom of yoga and the strength of Pilates. Barre3 classes are set to an upbeat soundtrack and follow a vigorous pace moving through a sequence of postures designed to shape and lift the entire body.


Classes:

All our classes are open-level. First-timers and regulars follow a vigorous pace moving through a sequence of postures designed to shape and lift the entire body.

How does barre3 transform the body?

The benefit we are most proud of is that clients have literally measured taller after taking barre3 classes. The benefits clients are most excited about is losing inches around their waists, hips, thighs, and upper arms! Barre3 really does shape and lift the entire body.

We connect mental health to physical health. Posture, for example, can impact your energy and mood. People who stand “tall and proud” with ease and have a nice balance between flexibility and strength are likely to be more energetic and positive.

For fast shaping results, commit to practicing at least 3 times per week. Consistency is key! Whether you have 10 minutes or 60 minutes, find time for yourself and get your workout in. You can even practice barre3 every day, just make sure you’re listening to your body’s wisdom.

Every person is different, so talk to your doctor to see what’s best for you. I supplement my barre3 practice by walking our dog and hiking with my family at least 3 times per week. Choose a variety of heart healthy activities that you enjoy and stick with them for a lifetime of wellness.
