The Dailey Method® is a system of strengthening and stretching all the major muscle groups in the body. It combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises. The controlled movements are very focused, effective, and safe. Each exercise is followed by a series of stretches to develop more sculpted and supple muscles. The entire body is constantly working throughout class. Through this process ones body, posture, and physical awareness will be transformed.
The Dailey Method has continued to evolve since our inception based on the most current knowledge of the body and movement in addition to the constant inspiration and dedication of our team. Why? Because we know we can always improve our bodies and fitness levels. This improvement is directly connected to the importance of being challenged both mentally and physically. If it is the same workout every time you lose mental engagement which negatively affects the mind-body connection that is so important for our health and well-being.
The Dailey Method is known as an exercise that is challenging and incredibly effective. But beyond making you stronger and more toned; you also gain better alignment of your entire body. Aligned positioning is imperative in rehabilitating long term injuries and also in offsetting any that could occur. It also makes you look and feel stronger and more confident. We have also designed each class to have the perfect balance of stretching and strengthening exercises. It is amazing how this makes you feel, but more importantly this approach will help you maintain long term physical activity.
Much of our focus in class is on working the spine in a « neutral position ». Neutral is the healthiest, most lengthened position for the spine and creates freedom of natural movement. We hope this education for our clients will transfer to their daily lives to create an increased awareness of their alignment and daily movement.
