Carolina Rivera instructs the following:
  • Figure 4 Barre
  • Created by a NYC ballet dancer and exclusively at Pure, Figure 4 is the most challenging barre experience out there, enhancing precision dance techniques with strength training. With high-energy choreography and interval cardio, 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.

  • Baby Wearing Figure 4 Barre
  • Combining the benefits of ballet, Pilates and prenatal yoga, our signature baby-wearing barre class provides mom with a workout that will tone and strengthen her post natal body while creating a stronger bond with baby. For parents and babies up to one year, please bring a suitable carrier comfortable for you and baby.

     


  • Figure 4 Barre
  • 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.

  • Figure 4 Form
  • Take barre at a slower pace and enjoy the added emphasis on proper alignment with Figure 4 Form. Teachers take the time to ensure each client understands the nuances of body positions and movements. Stretching is further incorporated to allow the muscles to breathe after rigorous conditioning. Great for new clients and barre-veterans alike looking to reap the benefits with a focus on the basics.

  • Figure 4 Fierce Dance Cardio
  • Figure 4 Fierce combines all the benefits of a dance cardio class with the strengthening and toning elements of a standard Figure 4 barré class. This is a high intensity workout that mixes cardiovascular aerobic dance combinations with interval training to target the thighs, arms, abs, and glutes. Easy to follow, energetic moves are created to make you burn calories and release endorphins. No worries, this is not zumba and you won't be twerking! All moves are easy to follow and focus on keeping your heart rate elevated and your confidence soaring.  Sneakers are required for class.

  • Figure 4 Forty-Five
  • Take the express route in the 45 minute class designed for those who want to achieve the benefits of Figure 4's all-around approach in minimal time.
