Tighten Your Core with the Dash

We love the experiences teams create at the game, like Kid’s Run the Base and Zamboni Rides.

Recently we have seen a couple Yoga pre-games in baseball that are another great example of using your field in different ways to create a memory for fans. Well the Winston-Salem Dash see your yoga pose and raise you a Pure Barre.

For those unfamiliar:

Barre is a form of physical exercise, usually conducted in group classes in gyms or specialty studios.

It is distinguished from other group fitness activities by its use of the ballet barre and its incorporation of movements derived from ballet. These classical dance movements and positions are combined with those drawn from yoga and pilates, and other equipment is sometimes used in addition to the barre, such as resistance bands,yoga straps,exercise balls and hand weights.

Barre classes typically focus on small, pulsing movements with emphasis on form, alignment and core engagement. Participants hold their bodies still while contracting specific, targeted sets of muscles in isometric exercises.[Repetitions tend to be high, range-of-motion small, and weights, when used, light (1–1.5kg or 2–3 pounds).

Barre classes focus on the lower body, developing strength and flexibility from the ankles up though the calves, knees, thighs, and glutes. Holding muscles in contraction for extended periods frequently leads to them shaking as they fatigue. This is particularly true of thighs, as the quadriceps tire.

And from what I understand you might need that glass of wine afterwards….this can be a taxing experience.
