BOULDER, CO – April 4, 2011 – Body Bar® Inc. a premier fitness company specializing in products and educational tools for fitness enthusiasts of all ages and abilities, today announced that award-winning fitness star, writer, and entrepreneur June Kahn has developed a new class called Buddha Bar FLEX. Ms. Kahn will debut the class at the DCAC Fitness Convention in Houston, Texas, April 7-9.

WHAT:
April 9: June Kahn, 2009/2010 IDEA WORLD Fitness Instructor of the Year, has developed an exciting new program, incorporating Pilates, Yoga, and Dance with the Body Bar FLEX®.

Buddha Bar FLEX is an elegant blend of Pilates, Yoga, and dance, using the unique bendable properties of the Body Bar FLEX. The Body Bar FLEX is used as a tool to assist and enhance more core engagement, and challenges balance to enhance proprioception to balance your body with power and grace.

Incorporating the Body Bar FLEX with traditional Pilates standing, kneeling, prone, seated, and supine progressions allows one to enhance core strength and improve rotational properties while adding a distinctive graceful flow to the series. For Yoga, we incorporate the Body Bar FLEX in the traditional undulating Sun Salutation series, adding an upper body strength component as well as adding balance and strength challenges to the traditional Yoga poses. We also use the Body Bar FLEX as an assistance tool for flexibility and utilize the Dynamic Inertia (shaking) properties of the bar with the Classical Pilates Hundred series.

In addition, the following Body Bar classes will be offered:

April 8: Body Bar Balance Infused Strength with Keli Roberts - Keli uses Gliding Discs, the Body Bar, and the Bender Ball to create a training environment that allows for the perfect blend of balance infused strength.

April 9: Body Bar Cut To The Core with Keli Roberts - Keli introduces an all new functional training program designed to improve core muscular strength/endurance, stability, mobility, and definition.

April 9: Body Bar Functional Fusion with Leslee Bender - Leslee presents a unique blend of tri-plane movement sequences with the Body Bar FLEX for a completely new approach in functional training.
WHERE: DCAC Fitness Convention in Houston, TX
WHEN: April 7-9, 2011
