Ellie Herman Barre Method Certification Teacher Training Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Barre Method is Master Pilates Teacher Ellie Herman's newest fitness program: a smart mix of functional exercises meant for all ages and fitness levels. 

What is the Ellie Herman's "Brooklyn Barre" Method?

After 25 years of teaching Pilates, Ellie has come up with what she thinks are the most important exercises to keep your body healthy, injury-free and looking great.  Ellie Herman Barre Method is a smart mix of functional exercises combining Pilates Mat and Springboard sequences, squats, lunges, planks, and basic dance moves that build cardio and tone your body fast while protecting your precious knees and spine!

Ellie Herman Barre Method incorporates props including the yoga block, yoga blanket, Gertie Ball, and Theraband.

 Ellie’s vision is to create a fitness regime that can be done in a jail cell. While having access to a Pilates studio with all the accessories is ideal, complete fitness can be achieved with just a space on the floor. Most important when doing any exercise regime is that the form is correct.
