For all you Denver folks – I found a little gem over in Highlands Ranch that you won’t want to miss – Natal to Nest! It’s a little place that provides growing families a healthy place to connect and grow their knowledge.
They offer lots of different classes and services for moms anywhere on the childbearing spectrum – from preconception to postpartum and beyond. I had been hearing about this place for months and was really excited when they contacted me to try out a barre class.
The best part? They offer onsite childcare during the class. The owner took care of Aiden in a separate room and he played and played with the toys. I could barely drag him out of there.
The class was equally as enjoyable for me. It had that personal trainer feel to it, so I knew I was getting a good workout. The teacher was knowledgeable and pushed me harder than I could push myself. I took ballet when I was little and know dancers have great bodies, so I’m excited that the barre workout was invented so a broader population could experience the exercises that make dancers look so lean and strong.
The 45 minutes flew by and before I knew it, the class was over and I my muscles were shaking to a rhythm they hadn’t felt in a long time!
They also offer baby at the barre for new moms that can wear their babies while they do the barre class. Talk about some extra benefits – bonding with your baby and using their weight as extra leverage for your workout! Wheew. I would have loved to do this with Aiden when he was a manageable size in the carrier!
This is a perfect place for not only moms, but all women who want a studio-type workout for a good price with excellent instructors. The owner, Stacey, is a really sweet woman as well!
Disclaimer: I was offered a free class in exchange for a review, but all opinions are mine as usual!
Have you taken a barre class?
