Amman’s Barre Method Workout

25 Aug

Who would have thought that I’d be introduced to the Barre Method while living in Amman! Although yoga may be an underground enterprise in Amman, the Barre is anything but a secret. It’s an incredible workout that works every part of your body. I love augmenting my workouts with the Barre because it’s a lot less cerebral than running and yoga. It’s fun and active and it was made even better by the incredible instructor, Carrie Cole.

Here are some fun photos that were taken and featured in a Jordanian magazine in June, 2012 called Family Flavors.  I forgot to post these a while ago.

Notice my serious look of concentration.

Here’s the link to the magazine, pages 52-53:

    You go! Great photos and it looks like fun. But, if anyone brings a camera into my yoga class, they are dead!

      This was totally staged. I would never allow photos in my yoga classes either because I know they’s be shots with my tongue hanging out or something.

    Great shots! I have been working out at a different kind of bar 🙂 Just kidding….concentrating on the cleansing diet as well. I know in about two more weeks, I will knock down anyone eating a cheeseburger! See you soon!

      You can take Carrie’s classes at One to One or at the Orthodox Club.
