Meet Me at the Barre
If you’re here, I’m under the assumption that you know what a Barre class is. But if you don’t, scroll down to learn more about it:)
I keep hearing the question “are there Barre classes in Tel-Aviv?” or find people surprised when I tell them about an amazing Barre class I just took.
So if you’ve tried Xtend Barre in London, Physique 57 in NYC or any other Barre class in the world and felt the magic, you’d be happy to find out that there are plenty of options in Tel-Aviv as well.
I gathered here a list of the ones I’m familiar with. If I missed any or you feel lost, please feel free to reach out to me. I’m super happy to help you find the best fit for you!
These are the places I go to on a regular basis, and also the only Barre classes I've tried in Israel:
Both were opened by the same lady, they are franchised around the city and share the same wonderful teachers. They are also all English friendly.
The first Barre class I ever took was at FiT Studio, that’s where I fell in love with it and later on decided to get certified too (they have an amazing Barre teacher training).
You can just give them a call and check where there’s a studio close to you, they keep opening new ones (such as at TLV port and on Rothschild) and also offer a variety of other amazing classes.
Other options in the city are:
Barre Studio by Ayala Levit (north and old north).
Hanna House (Ben Gurion 75) - they have a lot of Barre options, mornings, evenings, weekends. 073-3245731.
Studio Naim - they have 4 studios all over the city with many classes.
Physique57 - the first and only class I tried in NYC, and it has amazing energy. They now offer an online membership as a result of COVID.
Other Space - this was a studio based in Tel-Aviv but now converted it into an online membership as well.
What is Barre?
“Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class - combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training. Most classes incorporate a ballet barre and use classic dance moves such as plies, alongside static stretches. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements.
But the real difference between barre and other workouts are the isometric movements you usually perform - holding your body still while you contract specific muscles, until you shake and feel the burn!” - Cosmopolitan
I hope this helps, and that you get the chance to embrace your love for this beautiful, energizing workout!
