YoLarates™ is Cheshire's first barre class, designed by Master Barre Instructor, Lara Foldvari, in 2009.

YoLarates™ is a blend of yoga, Pilates and ballet barre movements. The class starts with a warm-up of basic poses from yoga and ballet, followed by sun and moon salutations.  After upper body work with light weights, we then move to the ballet barre portion of class, using a small squishy ball.  The class continues onto the floor for a little more leg & butt work before concentrating on Pilates abs exercises. A cool-down and stretch complete the class.

YoLarates™ will strengthen and tone your entire body, especially your core, buttocks, arms, and legs.  You will also become more flexible, and more balanced, both physically and mentally. 

All levels are welcome and encouraged to join us!  Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.  YoLarates™ can be done in sticky socks or bare feet. Dress comfortably (think yoga/workout wear).

Drop-ins are welcome; first class is free.  $12.00/class or purchase class cards for a discount.

Class cards for the Annalisa Studio location can be purchased online!  5-class cards for $50.00. 10-class cards for $90.00.  20-class cards for $165.00.  See Shop page to purchase.
