Christina Ilisije instructs the following:
  • Figure 4 Barre (Open)
  • Created by a NYC ballet dancer and exclusively at Pure, Figure 4 is the most challenging barre experience out there, infusing dance based techniques with foundational strength training. Through high energy choreography, Figure 4 keeps your pulse pounding while forging a lean, sculpted physique focusing on the thighs, arms, abs, and glutes. Socks with grips or bare feet for class.

  • Figure 4 Fit (2/3)
  • Takes our premium Figure 4 Barre class and cranks up the intensity level by several notches. This non-stop workout targets every muscle repetitively and maximizes results by adding in a heart pumping, calorie blasting, cardio element. Level: Advanced, 2/3, should be familiar with Figure 4 Barre format. Not recommended for clients with prominent injuries or are who are pregnant.

  • Figure 4 Barre (Open)
  • In this challenging program suitable for all levels, there is an emphasis on alignment, stretching, and proper technique. Instructors are hands-on and guide the class at a slower pace, making it ideal for beginners or those looking to build a stronger foundation.
