A Barre Studio & Classes for Everyone, in Hackney, East London

Set the Barre high and embrace a new approach to fitness which connects mental focus with strength, stability, and focus. 

The Refinery are a Yoga, Studio in Hackney, the heart of East London.

Think ballet class… for adults – using the bar as the core workout tool which builds, tones, shapes, and flexes muscles that you didn’t even know you had.


What’s it all about?

Did you ever wonder how ballerinas get to be strong enough to hold their body in position for whole minutes? 

Derived from classical ballet classes, and with the same focus and drive, our Barre workouts build strength by targeting every muscle in the body. While traditional workout and fitness classes focus on specific areas for toning and muscle building, Barre embodies an all-in-one approach. What’s more, it genuinely make you feel like your body has worked hard – giving you that sense of achievement at the end of each class. 

Barre focuses on exercises which are performed – you guessed it – using or holding onto the studio bar. 

By delivering each movement with refined focus, Barre not only engages the core muscles but forces you to exert complete control. And while our Barre for beginners deals with the basics of identifying movements and connecting them, for more advanced members we deliver workout routines which challenge strength and flexibility as well as control and finesse.
