A new barre studio has opened at Preston Forest.

The Bar Method, which was founded in 2001 in San Francisco, now has more than 90 locations across the country. Classes provide a full-body workout incorporating pilates, yoga and other strength-training exercises, using participants’ body weight, a ballet barre and tools such as free weights and a ball.

Melissa Moore, a certified master instructor who has been teaching for more than a decade in Dallas-Fort Worth, is the owner of the studio.

There are three packages available for participants, each offering different numbers of classes each month. And the studio is offering one free class to new students through June 30.

Each class begins with a warm-up, upper-body exercises and push-ups. Then, students will exercise their legs and seat at the barre, followed by core work.

The studio offers several types of classes, most lasting an hour, that are meant to produce different results. To read more about the classes, go here.

The Bar Method is located at 11661 Preston Road, Ste. 128 and can be reached at 214-792-9111.
