The verdict: I finished the class feeling a little bit wobbly but with a sense of accomplishment. And my sore muscles the next day showed just how tough it is to work out like a ballerina.

Find a class: Look for the word barre (or bar) in the name or description of classes at gyms in your area or search Google with the name of your city. You can also do the workouts at home with DVDs like those from Core Fusion and Pure Barre (go to collagevideo.com to order). You don’t actually need a barre in your living room to do this workout—the back of a chair will do fine.

Challenge rating: 3 (out of 4).

I checked out Dahn Yoga 15 years ago in January of 1998. Currently, I am a Dahn Yoga instructor in Sedona and Flagstaff, AZ. There are many members who have enjoyed the benefit of participating in our classes and workshops.
Yes, we are all painfully aware of the 'cult" mongering. If you wish, please try this exercise and decide for yourself. I am happy that I found Dahn Yoga, many of my friends feel the same.


I was initially interested in Dahn yoga after reading the article. But when I read more about the organization and the philosophy I became concerned. I was wondering if you knew about the background of the organization when you wrote the article. I would not want to participate in such an organization.
