Step out of your comfort zone and step up to the barre at Honolulu’s premier barre fitness studio. Our core-focused barre class will challenge, strengthen, and lengthen every muscle group in your body. This is your hour, your chance to transform. Elevate yourself.

Our Classes

Barre

Join us at the barre for an athletically-paced, full body workout. Sculpt long, lean thighs, flat abs, toned arms, and a lifted butt while developing core strength, flexibility, and improved posture. Find soulful balance as intense intervals are followed by deep, relaxing stretches. Our classes are mindful, focusing on proper position and body alignment while connecting movement with breath. With regular practice you’ll develop a strong, flexible, and functionally fit body that will enhance your performance in any sport or recreational activity.

Suitable for all fitness levels. Socks are required in studio; grip socks highly recommended and are available for purchase.

Barre Advanced

Looking for a deeper challenge in your barre practice? This class is for you! In this class we increase the intensity of our work intervals and introduce additional variations while still maintaining our commitment to safe, mindful movement. With regular practice you’ll develop a strong, flexible, and functionally fit body that will enhance your performance in any sport or recreational activity.

Prerequisites: At least 10 Sweat + Soul barre classes. Socks are required in studio; grip socks highly recommended and are available for purchase.

Cardio

A heart-pumping, sweat-inducing, fat-burning cardio class designed to sculpt and tone your entire body. Join us for a high intensity, motion-filled hour that moves your body in a variety of amazing ways. We use light hand weights and combine mountain climbers, karate kicks, speed skaters, flowing yoga poses, and an ab sculpting series for an energizing, total body workout. An excellent cross-training alternative to running, cycling, or other repetitive motion activities. Open to all levels.
