Barre + Core + Stretch


This class is taught by:

Hillary Taylor

Why do you love Barre? It’s an alternative to the gym that’s structured but varied enough that my body doesn’t plateau. The music & personality behind the class being taught in a beautiful community is inspiring for the day to follow.

After Barre you can be found: eating on a corner or sipping Starbucks…which one who knows?! Or walking, jogging or climbing mountains with my pup Louis.

What is your guilty pleasure? Friday Night Lights forever! Clear eyes, full hearts, CAN'T LOSE. Snacks, always Snacks. Polaroid Cameras. Twister.

Do you carry anything odd with you in your purse or gym bag? A comb, for locks that can’t be tamed.

What is a secret talent of yours? I carve a pretty mean pumpkin!

What is your guilty pleasure? Peanut Butter.

What little things make you smile? Cat videos. I can't get enough!

Why do you love Barre? I first fell in love with Barre because it was a challenging workout that was insanely fun and did wonders for my tush! I now love Barre not only for the physical benefits but the amazing energy of the BBS Tribe and the wonderful people I surround myself with every day at the studio.

What is your favourite Barre Body Move? Glute bridge.

What barre star advice would you give to a first time barre guest? We all had our first class at some point! Come prepared to work hard and have fun, the rest will happen naturally.

What is your guilty pleasure? Bad reality television and ice cream.

Why do you love Barre? It’s so rewarding pushing through a class, leaving knowing you worked as hard as you possibly could have, and seeing those amazing results! On top of all of that, the classes are so much fun and the community is unbelievably inspiring!
 
Who is on your playlist right now? Bastille, 30 Seconds to Mars and Banners, to name a few!
 
What do you want to be when you grow up? I am very fortunate to be working many of my dream jobs! I am a zookeeper at the Calgary Zoo by day and a dance and barre instructor by night! What could be better???
 
What is a secret talent of yours? Baking! It’s one of my favourite things to do in my downtime!

Tara Munro

Why do you love Barre? It's that sweet barre burn that made me fall in love; I admit, it is a love/hate relationship! It is so intense but the benefits I have seen in my muscles and the improvement in my strength and endurance makes those 'teeny-tiny-little pulses' worth every second.

What is your guilty pleasure? Red wine and chocolate are my biggest weaknesses…and peanut butter.

What is a secret talent of yours? Singing maybe? But it’s not a secret; I sing all the time! Heck, maybe I sound terrible and nobody tells me? Perhaps I simply enjoy the sound of my own voice but I do honestly love to sing.

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My sisters and my momma; they are my besties and I find them hugely inspirational.

What is a secret talent of yours? Making dream catchers!
