Safe somatic method for all

Effective floor barre for dancers

BARRE ASTIĖ is a somatic method that can be applied to everyone – dancer, non-dancer, professional or beginner. It keeps evolving thanks to the constant research of Mr ASTIĖ  alongside the participation of more than a hundred Barre ASTIĖ trainers throughout the world.
