bootybarre is a combination of Pilates, dance and yoga, using various techniques to strengthen and tone the body. Our professional bootybarre teachers will be able to take you through all the moves, making sure you get the maximum health benefits from the class and have fun whilst you work out.
What is bootybarre?
bootybarre is the concept of Tracey Mallett, the fitness and wellness expert with a wealth of experience as a professional actor and dancer. She is known across the world for her revolutionary exercise and dance programmes which help people of all fitness levels to achieve their goals.
Your bootybarre class will focus on biomechanics as well as exercise, with your teacher ensuring you can perform each move safely whilst maintaining good form. The exercises themselves will be based on Pilates, dance and yoga – three specialist disciplines that work together to improve your strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Many of the moves will remind you of typical ballet exercises at the barre, using small isometric movements to target specific muscle groups.

Taking a bootybarre class
at Ismini Studios
bootybarre can only be taught by a licensed teacher who undergoes regular refresher training to keep their knowledge up to date.
What is it like taking one of our bootybarre classes?
- Your teacher will guide you through the moves. Don’t worry about getting lost at first – you’ll soon begin to pick it up.
- It takes physical and mental concentration to master the moves, so we recommend booking a block of sessions to get to grips with them.
Your bootybarre toolkit
This is what you will need for your bootybarre class:
- Comfortable clothing that allows you to move easily. Leggings or yoga pants are recommended
- A pair of toeless ToeSox with grip on the soles. These are available to purchase on request
- A sweat towel
- A positive attitude!
Any equipment needed during the session will be provided by your teacher. You will use the barre for isometric and flexibility exercises, as well as focusing on centre work and balance. You might also make use of other equipment like weights, sliders and bootybarre balls.
