This comprehensive 1-day certification provides you with the necessary skills needed to teach a fun and challenging barre workout including progressions and regressions that can be used for various populations. SCW Barre Certification combines the core conditioning associated with Pilates with the strength training received from traditional weights, along with the flexibility improvements that occur with Yoga. Perfect for all ages and fitness levels, your clients will increase stability by using isometric exercises that incorporate a fixed ballet barre. You will leave with several easy-to-follow, choreographed, 60-minute Barre formats that include a plethora of variations. This will enable you to discover creative ways to structure your own Barre workouts with equipment options that include light dumbbells, flat resistance bands, mini-balls, and more. The certification includes practical training, a comprehensive manual, and a completely automated online examination.
