Kayla Itsines has announced a brand new Barre program and more Yoga programs, with new instructors, joining the Sweat app, and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek for you.

The new Barre program is called Barre with Britany and will be led by instructor Britany Williams who is from Portland, Oregon, USA.

Britany started doing Barre to combat the effects of chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis. Her invigorating classes fuse traditional elements of ballet and Pilates with athletic, high intensity movements to build strength and flexibility.

Britany has found empowerment through the mental and physical challenge of Barre and is driven to help other women discover their physical capability and achieve their goals.

“Barre allows women to get outside of their comfort zone and discover the connection between their body and mind,” Britany said.

“The sense of achievement of mastering a new exercise in Barre is incredibly rewarding - women don’t know what they are capable of until they believe in themselves and give it a try!”

Each of the programs are suitable for beginners and up, and will help to build technique, strength, flexibility and mobility over time.

“As someone who is not a dancer, Barre with Britany is designed for any woman looking to build strength and flexibility, and you don’t need a background in dance to enjoy this program - it is a lot of fun and a great workout!” Kayla said.

The new, expanded Yoga offering features two new trainers; Vinyasa Instructor Phyllicia Bonnano, from New Jersey, and Vinyasa Instructor Ania Tippkemper, from Dusseldorf, Germany.

“Yoga is something you do for yourself and your body, not for competition or comparison,” Ania said.

“Through regular movement and concentration, you can overcome physical limitations to build strength, flexibility and a sense of self-love in body and mind.”

All the new programs are exclusive to the Sweat app.
