SHAKTIBARRE’S signature class, SHAKTIBARRE, is a hybrid class between yoga, barre, + sculpt. The class moves through various yoga flows while incorporating small sculpting movements working your way through your entire body using light weights, pilates balls, & the barre.
Fitness clothes + bare feet/socks.
SHAKTIBARRE provides mats, blocks, and other equipment, but if you don’t bring a mat, you can rent one for $2.
A typical class: (i) breath work and gentle yoga flows, (ii) arm work using light weights and/or body weight, (iii) leg work on the barre using equipment like the pilates ball, (iv) core work, like planks, (v) yoga flow, (vi) glute/ab work, and (vii) ends with shavasana.
Each class follows the foregoing format, but the pace and vibe of class are instructor-dependent. Some instructors lean more fitness-y, some more dance-y.
The non-yoga moves are done repetitively and will exhaust your muscles.
The exercises in class change each time, so you’ll keep your body guessing (which is a major plus to me!).
A perfect option for a low impact day.
Sweat Level: 💧💧
First Timers: $49 for a week of unlimited classes.
Returners: $22 or $24 per class, depending on location.
Packages and memberships are available to lower the "per class" price.
SHAKTIBARRE also offers “sliding scale” pricing for those who cannot afford the standard prices.
SHAKTIBARRE has put quite a lot of thought into their vibe and mission. The studio’s focus is on the mind-body connection. To guide this mission along, the studio does not have any mirrors and directs the students to face inwards towards the instructor.
The idea behind foregoing mirrors is to focus the attention on the body, breath, and movements w/o spending time critiquing or comparing to others in the mirror. The instructor is in the middle of the room as your “mirror”.
The studio’s mission is to have their students be mindful of how the body feels w/o distractions (mirrors, lots of equipment, etc.) so that you can grow and become stronger inside and out.
Super cute space. Feels like you’re in your cool friend’s cool apartment.
Calming & welcoming. Hang out area in the lobby.
The studio itself is on the smaller side.
Pink themes throughout the studio.
Very welcoming staff and instructors.
“Shakti” means “the dynamic energy of change, creation, and restoring balance. It is representative of feminine energy”. Further, it incorporates the “power to know, willpower, and the power to act”.
Spray your mat after class w/ their cleansing spray.
Instructors help adjust positions.
Freshening up station.
No lockers, locker rooms, or showers. Cubbies only.
Yes! A fun, unique, full body class. Further, extra points to a studio that’s focused on women’s empowerment.
