Unexpected Benefit of Barre - Guest Post from Marina Lundquist

As an instructor of Fit 4 Two Mom & Baby Barre and Prenatal Barre (a ballet barre, pilates, and yoga fusion class), I want to inspire you to try barre for the physical and mental benefits. From posture and flexibility to grace and poise there is no limit to the expected benefits of a barre routine that is specific for your pre and postnatal wellness.   

What you may not expect is one benefit that blew my mind. This one benefit that out trumps them all.

***Positive Body Image!***

 After having a baby I have been quoted to say that you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck. You may feel that your body has let you down or that you just don’t feel the same. It can be hard to adjust to the fact that you just had a baby and your body won’t be the same. We can move forward by not looking back, which is easier said than done.

This mom (little, stocky, ex-military brat) found her self-defeating brain negatively impacting her workouts, but when I started teaching Mom & Baby Barre and Prenatal Barre I didn’t see this one thing coming. Needless to say, when you start training in Barre and then teaching it, you are forced to confront your own post-baby body image.  

The more I trained, the more I realized how much I was changing, mind and body. Letting it be and accepting that I am a better version of myself. Mom & Baby Barre and Prenatal Barre opened my mind to a stronger, leaner, and more graceful version of who I am today.

Mom & Baby Barre and Prenatal Barre is for all moms. You are beautiful and graceful and you will see yourself transform using the flexibility and strength you are developing with the Barre technique. Your posture will improve, which we all need especially after carrying a baby for 9 months. You will rehabilitate your core by becoming more aware of your core and engaging through movement.  Most of all, you will have a more positive body image.
