Ballet for Adults

Jeydancepilates launches FLOOR BARRE

(Barre au sol) 

Floor Barre Oct-01.png

Barre à terre literally “floor barre” in English is a technique that reproduces the classic ballet barre but into floor.
Also called “barre au sol” with Boris Kniaseff method, the barre is actually an imagined barre, and dancers / practicioners use the floor to get their exercises done.

Benefits of the floor barre are numerous and there are two main techniques
1- Barre au sol invented by the Russian Boris Kniaseff
2- Floor barre by Zena Rommett American dancer.

The method I’m using is the one from Boris Kniaseff barre au sol. According to his interviews “the technique is meant to be added to a traditional class (rather than as a replacement) and was developed by combining Graham style floor exercises with classical technique.”

Characteristically, Kniaseff’s barre au sol method is accompanied by music.
What for?

Floor barre is a fantastic way of maintaining core, hip, and foot control whilst not bearing weight down though your feet. It is often more challenging than a normal barre and an effective way of improving your technique whilst you are not allowed to do normal classwork.

While doing floor barre you can quickly work out where your weaknesses or any discrepancies in strength or range from side to side are.

It encourages concentration on alignment and efficiency of the muscles.
The body moves through patterns common in ballet and other movement disciplines but free from the usual affects of gravity. This provides opportunity to correct bad habits and gain deeper understanding of movement principles.
Floor barre is also a method favored to recover from injuries.
The techniques can not only be rehabilitative, but may also increase the dancer’s awareness of weaknesses and tendencies which may have led to injury in the first place.
For who ?
Even at the origin it has been invented by dancers for dancers. It is now completely accessible to non dancers who want work on their alignment, posture and grace/ flexibility.

Where and when?

From this wednesday and every week :

Discover floor barre method
6.30-7.30 at Nineclouds studio location 17 Xiangyang road, Julu road-

Bonjour à tous –

Aujourd’hui on se retrouve pour le premier article EN FRANCAIS sur mon blog et l’occasion aussi de m’adresser à un autre public. 

Comme certains de mes élèves le savent déjà- jeydancepilates arrive en France pour tout l’été et avec ce concept des cours  de Pilates pour toutes celles et ceux qui passeront par la Côte d’Azur Juillet -Aout. 

Comment cela va t-il se dérouler ? 

Chaque semaine on aura deux rendez-vous – dans des lieux uniques, et la plupart du temps en extérieur- on se retrouvera pour pratiquer tous ensemble, apprendre les basiques du Pilates, développer la musculature profonde, s’assouplir et se ressourcer.

Je choisirai les lieux et vous enverrai à chacun et chacune, un récapitulatif avec ce qu’il faut apporter, l’heure, le jour et le lieu évidemment, ainsi qu’une petite MAP pour vous montrer comment s’y rendre.

Pour cela il vous suffit de m’envoyer un email et de vous inscrire à la NEWS LETTER que je vous enverrai chaque semaine.

Pour recevoir ses infos Pilates, lieux, cours, conseils et petites « surprises » c’est ICI – écrivez moi un email et mettez en OBJET « new-letter Pilates ».

Les lieux seront choisis en fonction des disponibilités, des arrangements logistiques et des conditions météorologiques. Je vais faire en sorte que nous puissions varier l’utile à l’agréable- et nous muscler tout en admirant de beaux paysages – par exemple on aura l’occasion de pratiquer dans des lieux magiques (voir photos ci-dessous)


Plages des marinières- Villefranche sur Mer





Colline du château-Nice


Parc Carole de Roumanie – Nice Ouest



Promenade des anglais- Nice

Comment me préparer ? 

Munissez vous d’un simple tapis de Yoga (possibilité d’en acheter dans tous les magasins de wellness- décathlon) – d’une tenue confortable, vêtements souples et dans lequel je puisse bouger, pas trop amples non plus histoire de pouvoir vérifier si la position est bien effectuée-

Le Pilates se pratique généralement pieds nus ou avec des chaussures spécialement conçues pour ça (voir mon article sur les tenues de sport et les chaussons Nike)

Que va t-on apprendre ? Quel niveau ? Est-ce que je vais suivre ? 

Oui le Pilates est malléable et accessible à toutes et à tous- quel que soit votre âge, votre forme physique et votre niveau, les exercices peuvent se dispenser suivant plusieurs paliers : débutant – intermédiaire- avancé-

Mes cours sont très pédagogiques, expliqués clairement, lentement et très surveillés. Vous n’aurez pas de risque de vous faire mal ou d’effectuer un mauvais mouvement, je vous aiderai à aller plus loin dans la compréhension du corps, le positionnement juste et la bonne posture.

Avec des exercices seul(e) ou en duos, vous aurez l’occasion d’appréhender tous les aspects du Pilates et l’unique technique JeysoftPilates. Une technique mise en place avec l’influence de mon passé de danseuse et ma formation classique ainsi que d’autres techniques comme le Yoga, Stretch, Barre à terre. Ceci pour vous permettre un travail global et complet du corps, avec une musculature qui se construira profonde, solide et en longueur.

J’effectue un niveau débutant à intermédiaire dans les cours proposés cet été- adapté au public que j’aurais devant moi, mais les exercices sont modulables et je vous donnerai les moyens de les effectuer suivant votre possibilité.

 N’ayez pas de crainte, vous pourrez tous et toutes pratiquer et adapter les challenges suivant vos capacités, vos résistances et vos profils:  le pilates c’est pour tout le monde et sans danger pour le corps. A l’inverse de certains sport : le Pilates ne brutalise pas les articulations, ne met pas de pression excessive sur les muscles et vous permet un développement rapide, mais en douceur.

Pour celles et ceux qui pratiquent déjà un sport à côté, c’est un élément qui complète quelle qu’activité que ce soit et vous rend plus performant pour vos autres sports.

Les cours seront composés de constantes du Pilates- alimentés par des variantes que j’aime amener et des petites surprises qui vous les rendront ludiques et agréables :

– Respiration – centre du corps – renforcement en profondeur tronc -abdominaux:profonds, grands, petits, obliques, transverses – dorsaux – bras – jambes – assouplissement – duos- anatomie – apprentissage technique –

NB: Afin de rendre accessible les cours à tous et à toutes je pratique un tarif unique et mini de 8 E / cours Le tout sera reversé à l’association jey dance pilates_ L’occasion de se muscler pour la bonne cause.

J’espère que cet article vous aura plu- restez branchées et n’hésitez pas à laisser un petit commentaire – je vous répondrai avec grand plaisir-
Quelques photos des cours JEYDANCEPILATES et à très bientôt pour plus de Pilates !
