Pure Yoga’s new barre class called Figure 4 has gained a steady following since its debut about two months ago. Last Wednesday night Well+Good readers filled Kate Albarelli’s class to see what all the fuss is about.

The verdict was uniformly positive, with several attendees taking to their blogs to share the experience. Mom at the Barre wrote “Kate paid a lot of attention to form, walking among us, making gentle corrections. She seems to have put a lot of thought into the sequence and choreography and this is evident when you take the class.”

Fitness NYC wrote “I rarely love a class the first time, but this was an really challenging class with lots of variation, so I never got bored and never knew what was coming next.”

Happy Healthier Bear also grooved on the experience, sharing “I really can’t describe my love for this class! Her energy and music choices truly made the class, which led me to actually request her class playlist after the workout.”

After the ballet inspired class, everyone spilled into the lounge to sample JouleBody’s green juice with dandelion and fennel. Yvette Rose, JouleBody’s founder, was on hand to answer questions about her food-based cleanses.
