This class is taught by:

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.

Why do you love Barre? I love how since I started doing Barre my legs and arms have become leaner, I always struggled with building bulk when working out and Barre gave me the solution I had been searching for to lean out my body! Wooo hoo!

What do you want to be when you grow up? Exactly who I am.

What is a secret talent of yours? Getting ready really fast! I can be in sweats to ready for a night out or on the stage in under 20 minutes.

What advice would you give to a first time barre guest? Come back the next day and tiny movements equal huge results!

Why do you love Barre? It's a full body workout and really targets all the smaller areas of your body that other exercise doesn't. Plus it's an amazing community of fun, positive, encouraging women.

What is your favourite post workout snack? Anything and everything! I'm super hungry after a good barre burn.

What advice would you give to a first time barre guest? Breathe and don't be afraid of the shakes! 

What little things make you smile? That first sip of earl grey tea in the morning. It's best not to talk to me until that's happened. ;)

Rachel Cadrin

Why do you love Barre? I love barre because it is low impact, I have had a few surgeries and found that other workouts are quite painful. I love the energy of a group workout as well.

After Barre I can be found: walking my puppies and working on my Masters in Art Therapy.

What is your guilty pleasure? I love the Real Housewives of anywhere really. I know it's awful but I just get so involved!

What little things make you smile? When my step-son tells me I am beautiful. :)

Why do you love Barre? It is a low impact activity that delivers the shakes and burns that are felt throughout the entire body!
 
Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My kids, the way they see the world; so innocent, so trusting, so caring, so open to everything.
 
What is your fav post workout snack? Homemade hummus and multigrain crackers, or beer.
 
What is your favourite quote or what motto do you live by? "Always ask, the worst they are going to say is no" – my Dad

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 you favourite Barre Body move? Sexy hips!

After Barre you can be found: teaching ballet or taking some kind of class.

What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate, coffee, shopping and Netflix.

What little things make you smile? Good music, "ah-ha" moments, a good latte and sexy hips!


Amber Brodziak

Hometown: Saskatoon, SK

Why do you love Barre? It changes your body shape and increases strength without straining or over working your body and muscles. It is by far the most effective form of exercise I have found in years of working out.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I work in adolescent mental health as a therapist. I feel so lucky that I truly love what I do. The challenge and the complexity of my career keeps me loving it! I can’t really picture doing anything else!

What little things make you smile? Sunshine and chocolate.

Do you carry anything odd with you in your purse or gym bag? Just an inappropriate amount of grip socks.

Why do you love Barre? I love Barre for so many different reasons. I’ve been a personal trainer and involved in fitness for the past 8 years and this has been one of the only methods of movement where I’ve really seen the body changes I’ve desired. Not only has it catered to me on a physical level, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Barre embodies femininity and strength for me, it helps with posture, injury rehabilitation and balance. The community that you’re a part of when you go, and the connections you make are truly inspiring and uplifting. 

What is you favourite Barre Body Move? Anything glutes. If it works the booty, I’m all in! 

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My husband.

What is your favourite quote? “Life without passion is unforgivable”. -P.Diddy

Ashley G. Goethals

Why do you love Barre? It’s fun and changes my body faster than anything else I’ve ever done.

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

What little things make you smile? A really good song, stepping on crunchy leaves and anything fluffy!

Do you carry anything odd with you in your purse or gym bag? I have granola bars and a bottle opener in my purse at all times!

The original, like a classic tote that complements every look, this one hour workout will tone and challenge all levels of fitness. This is a class you can't go wrong with. The BBF tones and blasts common problem areas through a series of strategic exercises that focus on strength and flexibility while incorporating the ballet barre. The routine keeps fitness fresh with innovative moves complementary to all levels of fitness. > Classes in studio b are smaller and may be a good fit for first timers.
