    barre3 at The District at Green Valley Ranch to Host One-Day-Only Class
    to Benefit The Animal Foundation

    For the first time in Las Vegas, barre3 will host “Bark and Barre.” Think goat yoga… but instead of goats, there will be lovable dogs. Instead of yoga… it will be barre.

    barre3 will host this unique, canine-friendly fitness class. Participants are invited to bring their dogs to play freely and roam during class, which will take place in a fenced off area located in front of the main stage at The District at Green Valley Ranch.

    barre3 is a 60-minute class combining the techniques of ballet, yoga and Pilates. This special class will be taught by barre3 Henderson Founder Jackie Edlund. No shoes are required; participants are encouraged to bring their own mats and towels.

    The price per participant is $23 with proceeds benefiting The Animal Foundation.

    Following the class, The Animal Foundation will have cute dogs available for adoption.

    Interested guests must register here – limited space still available.  Only 25 participants will be allowed; space is extremely limited. A limited number of dogs will be allowed, so participants are encouraged to sign up their fur-friends as soon as possible. Participating dogs must be accompanied by current vaccination records.

    barre3 is a boutique fitness studio located at The District at Green Valley Ranch.  Barre3 is a unique 3-step, 60-minute program that “creates the strength of an athlete with the long, lean graceful lines of a dancer.” Isometric holds serve to align and strengthen muscles, while precise movements involving a small range of motion help dig deep into the muscles for maximum toning results. The barre3 program is low impact yet involves dynamic movement that energizes the body and elevates the heart rate. barre3 benefits those looking to get in shape and those already fit but looking to break plateaus while staying motivated.

    The Animal Foundation is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley.

    Warm 60, Hot Mess and Funk Ballet @sacredbrooklyn

    One of the most common resolutions are to ‘get to shape’, lose weight or exercise more for the new year.

    So it comes as no surprise that it is of course one of mine too! A lot of you know, I tried 3 months at Crunch and hardly went at all (30 mins walk) and did a few uninspired classes at Mark Morris Dance Studio. My effort was lackluster and the results were just about the same. I don’t want to ‘guilt’ myself into going or not going. Just want to find something fun to do again.

    How do I get back into this shape???

    Even though I live in New York City and walk practically everywherem everyday – with or without my dog or groceries (AND live in a 6th floor walk-up) it is still not enough. Yoga has been so ‘hot’ for the last little while and a lot of my friend’s lives have been changed from inside out from practice. I am looking for a really unique place and something that works with my schedule. With the pin-up motif, the premium prices and close proximity, I am really excited for this studio I walked by 1000 times but have not set foot in called Sacred.

    Pole Dance Class! Yipee!

    Through Yelp and a friend of a friend, I decided to check out Sacred – A top rated yoga studio just 2 blocks from my house! Woohoo!  They offer a variety of classes at a premium rate and I can’t wait to try out what they have in-store. From their website, I can see drop in rates are $20 per class. I  think I will buy a set of 10 classes and see how well I do. They also have a great deal that is $20 for 2 weeks of unlimited classes. A sampler pack if you will. I definitely want to get into the habit of sweating, stretching and dancing on a regular basis again!

    This is Dara, the owner of Sacred

    The hot yoga, hot pilates and ballet classes are just the tip of the iceberg. They also have bodyworks, acupuncture, kid’s classes and free sessions every Saturday at noon for the community.  I can’ t wait to meet the people, funky instructors and my sexy summer bod.

    Stay tuned to see my progress 🙂
