You can get behind the barre during the hotel's weeklong bar method intensives, in which you'll stretch and sweat in daily classes. A teacher and a spotter will show you the moves and watch over to make sure you're stretching those arms correctly. The next weeklong intensive is June 5 to 12, with Emily Feinstein from the San Francisco Marina studio teaching.
If you're already a bar method student, are new to Rancho La Puerta, and have bought at least one package in 2009 or 2010 at any bar method studio, you can get a 10 percent discount for the hotel's intensive.
In case you can't make it this go-around, a bar method intensive will be offered in the fall, September 25 to October 2. Rooms start at $2,980 (which includes lodging, food and other fitness classes) for the week of June 5. Hey, it's gonna cost you to get a dancer-like bod.
