    That was really fun! It reminded me of childhood ballet classes many, many years ago! It was a good workout – I really feel it in my glutes!

    Wow, that definitely worked my legs and glutes…and I’m a little sweaty, too! Thanks for this, it was fun yet challenging!

    This one felt easy to start with and then by the end I was definitely sweating. Definitely not like anything I’ve done before.

      haha, Laura here. I hope that’s a good thing Stephanie. It definitely can be a little challenging when you start moving your body in new and different ways but it’s actually so great from training your muscles. I totally agree that these barre classes totally creep up on you! Keep up the great work!
