Barre at the Brewery

  • Hog River Brewery 1429 Park Street Hartford, CT, 06106 United States (map)

Awesome workout at a phenomenal venue!  Spend the morning at the barre together through a fun warm-up, serious GLUTE, THIGH & AB burners, upper-body work and (finally) a serendipitous savasana. Relax and hang-out afterward with a complementary drink of your choice while you visit with friends.

Class is set to a heart-pumping playlist and is always designed for folks with all levels of exercise experience! Whether you are new or a regular member of the barre squad, you'll feel right at home.  They affectionately call the tap room "Hartford's Living Room" for good reason as you enjoy old friends and make some new ones.

$25 admission covers your ticket for class and a refreshing pint of in-house craft beer, hard cider, wine, kombucha, or cold-brew coffee to celebrate all your hard work in a post-class toast!

Hog River Brewing Co.- Parking Is Provided!
Doors Open at 10:30AM. Class runs 11AM - 12PM. 
Grippy socks required & are available for purchase.  Bring your mat if you have it - we'll bring extras too if you don't have one.

We'll see you at the barre!  

What is Barre?  The amazing popularity and growth in Barre fitness is a testament in its effectiveness for toning, core strength, and an invigorating whole body workout. Inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates, the workout is an ideal mix for toning, flexibility, and fitness, choreographed to motivating music. The signature is a prop to balance and allow focus on targeted isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements.  All exercises are body weight and low impact to maintain low pressure on your joints, tendons, ligaments and spine. Enhancements for a whole body work-out use resistance bands, balls, and low-impact cardio. The Barre class will work your whole body and you'll feel stretched, strengthened and invigorated. And don’t worry, if your muscles are shaking a bit afterward, that is normal and comes from the effectiveness of an awesome workout.

Lauren’s class is always popular and if you haven’t taken one of her classes, this will be one of those great work-out memories!
