A pregnant woman, a bride-to-be, and a busy exec walk into a barre.
“What’ll it be?” the instructor asks.
The pregnant woman says, “A low-impact, highly effective form of exercise.” The bride-to-be hopes to tone, trim, and improve her posture. The busy exec wants to destress.
“You’ve all come to the right place,” the instructor declares. “Here at The Dailey Method, we mix core conditioning with orthopedic exercises, the essence of ballet, and a splash of yoga in a sun-drenched studio off Abbot Kinney. Founded in San Francisco by kinesiologist Jill Dailey McIntosh, our method evolves constantly to challenge your muscles and reshape your bodies.”
“Is your $100 for six weeks of unlimited classes deal for real?” the exec asks.
“Yep,” the instructor says, beaming. “When it comes to your health, we don’t joke around.”
The Dailey Method, 1327½ Abbot Kinney Boulevard, at Andalusia Avenue, suite b, Venice (310-396-1500 or thedaileymethod.com), $22 per class.
