Yahoo! News named 2015 the year of the barre workout. If you don’t know, this rapidly growing exercise program uses ballet techniques and postures, all centered on the use of a ballet-style bar. According to the popular news site, there are now nearly 700 corporate-owned studios throughout the country, with 100 more scheduled to open in the next year.
One of these newbies is located right here in Dutchess County. Elevate Yoga & Barre Studio, a new, state-of-the-art fitness space located in the New Hackensack Plaza in Wappingers Falls, opened in January. Run by the folks at All Sport Health & Fitness in Fishkill, the classes at the Elevate studio are open to the public; membership is not required. In addition, All Sport has relocated its Yoga Wall to the new site. Namaste! 845-462-8400; www.elevatebyallsport.com.
