FINANCIAL DISTRICT — Exercise chain Pure Barre is bringing its yoga, pilates and ballet-based workout routine to Lower Manhattan.

The studio, which uses a ballet barre for their low impact, total body workouts, is slated to open its 80 Pine St. studio by mid-May, according to their Facebook page.

Each 55-minute workout tackles “trouble areas” like thighs, hips, the back of the arms and abs, with a focus on “tiny isometric movements," the company says on its website.

Despite the use of the ballet barre, fitness enthusiasts don’t need any dance experience for the class.

The company has several other locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, but this is their first below Canal Street.

Classes are about $25 to $35, and the studio also offers package and monthly deals. For more information, check out this website.
