Meet our newest Tuck Tribe Member of the Month, Donna! She has only been a member for 6 months, but in this short time Donna has become a regular at the studio, taking class almost every day! Her hard work and love for barre is apparent when you take class with her. She is a true testament that barre is for ALL ages and stages of life. Donna, we are so happy to celebrate YOU!
Q: How long have you been a member of The Barre Valencia?
A: I have been a member of The Barre Valencia for a little over one year. I just had my barre-versary on April 5th!
Q: What is your favorite part of coming to classes at The Barre Valencia?
A: My favorite part of coming to classes is the camaraderie with the instructors and women at the studio. I love working out in such a loving, kind environment.
Q: How do you feel your body has changed from Barre classes?
A: Barre has toned, tightened, and lengthened my body with dancers muscles I NEVER thought I’d achieve! The mind body connection that is encouraged throughout class has really helped me to get in touch with the workings of my body and connect with the muscle movements that have facilitated body changes.
Q: What is your favorite Barre exercise and why?
A: I have two favorite Barre exercises ( I can’t pick just one!). First, which is probably not a surprise for most at the studio, is Back Dancing! It lifts and tightens the booty to perfection! Second, is Pretzel. This exercise gets into the seat and obliques causing that satisfying shake every time!
Q: Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying Barre for the first time?
A: For anyone thinking of trying Barre, do it! Be patient with your body as it tries something new, and after just a few classes, you will be hooked!
