Does anyone know if there is someone we can send music suggestions to? Or even entire playlists? Maybe a fun playlist contest and we can vote for our favorite??

Hi! We have a client who is pregnant with her first child. She is in her second trimester. As a new mom, she is extra cautious and wants to do one-on-one classes until the baby is born. I know all the pregnancy modifications we are given, but I'd love to hear some extra cues/tips from moms who did PB throughout their pregnancy. Also- I have never had a baby, so the more tips and details, the better! Thanks in advance!

I had a client tell me the other day that she thinks she got pelvic floor dysfunction from doing pure barre !? She had been to the dr and she was having trouble emptying her bladder and the dr said it was because she has been using her core muscles too much and not stretching them out enough. She wanted my to pass this along to the higher ups and see if we could get some more relaxing and stretching of the core and not just bringing it in tight ? She has been advised not to bear down at all
. Has anybody else ever heard of this . Suggestions. ????

  • Rachel Smith I would find it very hard to believe that she has done this from Pure Barre, PFD is usually caused by a few things, child birth, obesity, pelvic surgery or heavy lifting. My guess would be she shocked the nerves doing something else and didn't realize it.
  • Emily Broadwater Ashley, I think you're right. I've been going to physical therapy for the past several months to try to correct a pelvic floor spasm related to childbirth trauma. In the case of the client, Pure Barre likely didn't CAUSE the tightening, but some of the...See More

Hey everyone! I had a client mention that she sometimes feels ab work more in her lower back rather than her core. Any suggestions and tips for her (other than placing the ball behind her lower back)?
Thanks! and Happy Holidays

  • Katrina Knizek That and making sure they're safely stretching makes a big difference. Usually they are compressing the lumber spine in Cobra stretch rather than extending the chest and therefore spine FORWARD. That can exacerbate existing back problems.
  • Mary Turner I like to cue to take the work out of the hip flexors (if they over strengthen their hip flexors it can cause back pain by creating an imbalance) instead tighten further up to the center of the core. They're fatigued by that point and tend to sometimes relax into it by releasing their abs and letting their hips do majority of the work. I've seen it a lot with this choreo in Abs 1 Combo A.
  • Bryanne Graser No ball! Come up higher!

Hey ladies! I'm on the hunt for a small bride to be tank - there are only medium and large online. I'm going to order the medium if I can't find a small but thought I would ask first just in case!

Does anyone have extra tips/tricks for hands on correcting and verbal cueing P2's semi-pushup? I personally love this exercise, but I feel like it's hard for others to get everything out of it! Thank you so much!

I'm teaching a breaking down the barre class next week as we have a lot of new clients and also we have started teaching P2. Does anyone have any hints or tips on how they do them? I would specifically like to go slowly through some of the P2 as I think some of my clients are having a hard time with waterski etc. also I'd like to try and get them to focus on flat back as people still have problems with that ! Thanks guys
