Welcome to Naked Truth Yoga’s Barred and Banned Fitness Method©.
Barre Fitness trainings are offered in different variations all over the globe. Most are based
around basic principals of ballet with a choreographed routine to follow, Naked Truth
Yoga’s Barred and Banned Fitness Method© is for already certified yoga instructors,
Pilates instructors, and group fitness instructors who would like to expand their teachings
into the Barre world without the limitations of a choreographed routine.
At Naked Truth Yoga™ we will give you the confidence and tools to create and
sequence your own Naked Truth Yoga Barred and Banned Fitness Method© classes based on a format to follow, leaving the creativity of your classes and exercises to you. Ballet has never been
considered as a sport but more an art, It is an art of fluidity of motion and structure,
strength and softness, principals and creativity. You are not going to be a dancer in a
choreographed dance, you are going to be the creator and choreographer of your own
We are going to focus on what the goals of the participants are wanting to
achieve in a Barre class which is a “dancers body”. A dancers body has been trained
from a young age with posture and discipline, it is the basis of learning how to connect
and engage with your body and muscles while gaining flexibility in your connective
tissues. In saying that, you will learn and teach proper posture and technique of a dancer
while adding the strength and conditioning of a Pilates style, yoga and Fuse© (yoga fitness) class.
We will learn and explore proper positioning of your feet and arms along with
proper posture, use of props, terminology, exercises to use in your classes, history of
ballet, learning how to safely and effectively sequence your class, modifications,
common mistakes, the format of your class, projection of your voice and much more.
When instructing in different faces of the yoga and yoga fitness industry you must first
understand the principals of the type of class structure you are teaching so you can
effectively provide the students with a well balanced class which will safely provide them
with the results and expectations they deserve. Being fitness professionals it is our duty to create a safe and effective class.
