Class + Studio: B The Method with Lia Bartha
Location: Energi SoHo (NYC)
Other Cities: N/A
Length: 60 mins.
Description: Mat-Pilates inspired workout using only a small ball. No muscle group is untouched during this class and stability is a key challenge throughout. Lots of core and booty focus, too – and class ends with a deep stretch.
Sweat Level: 4/10 – Does not require a hair wash!
Tone Level: 9/10 – Honestly, the tone is pretty insane – especially considering there’s no equipment used other than a ball. Not to mention, Lia tones in ALL the right places and focuses on long & lean muscles. Lots of core, booty and inner thigh, while taking pressure out of quads, shoulders and lower back.
Cult Level: N/A – We did a private so no cultiness.
Shower/Locker Situation: At Energi Soho there are showers + cubbies, at Project By Equinox there are just lockers.
Vibe: The workout vibe here is very relaxed, even though the actual workout is tough and engaging.
Similar to: Melissa Wood Health streaming, ‘Body by SJ’ with Samantha Jade.
Extras: Lia teaches privates and can come to your home! Her music is fire.
Go Back? Yes. We are so obsessed.
