It’s week 7 of our Pure Barre at home series! This week, we’re adding a lunge into the routine.  

“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! (You might just get a peek at Nicholette’s adorable pup while you’re there!)
