This week’s Pure Barre at home exercise will bring you back to ballet 101. For week six of our at-home eight-week program with Pure Barre Baltimore we’re trying out Wide 2nd. (We know how crazy busy life can be sometimes, so we’re bringing the experts to you!)

“This move works the inner and outer thigh muscles and seat muscles,” said Nicholette Dunleavy, owner of Pure Barre Roland Park and Pure Barre Harborside. “Be sure to keep shoulders stacked over the hips, your gaze forward, and your neck in line with your spine.”

Want to try out Pure Barre in the studio? Join us for our Moms Night Out Bubbles and Barre Class on March 22! Details below!
