Upside Motion instructor Jdrea

Life is too deep to be pinned down on a single mantra. Still, here is a quote from one of her favourite authors:
"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the only probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

Dance has always been a part of Jdrea’s life ever since she picked it up as her co-curricular activity during her school days. Amongst the various dance genres, ballet has been the one that stood out to her. She finds the strength needed down to the extremities of the body in this physically and mentally demanding sport fascinatingly challenging. This led her to take up classical ballet classes. While practicing the vocational syllabus, the pursuit of a degree and other commitments in life necessitated a pause. However, Jdrea has not forgotten the enjoyment she received from ballet. She began looking for workout alternatives and was hoping to find one that both employs the ballet techniques in lengthening and chiseling the muscles and delivers the cardio fix for a full body workout.

She found Xtend Barre at Upside Motion; and in just one class, she knew that she has found the perfect workout for herself - one that blends the elements of ballet and Pilates together. She saw how the exercise was something everyone at different fitness levels could enjoy. It will be her pleasure to go alongside others in not only enjoying this unique workout but also reaping its benefits.
