The newest trend among New York’s barre instructors? Babies!
Turns out two of the city’s most popular teachers are pregnant: Pure Yoga’s Figure 4 creator Kate Albarelli and Ballet Beautiful founder Mary Helen Bowers, known for her work with Natalie Portman on Black Swan.
Bowers has already been taking the opportunity to design prenatal barre sequences and answer questions about working out while pregnant.
As for the babies? Thankfully, nubby socks already come in infant sizes. But they may have to lower the barre if they want to get their tots following in their footsteps right away.
