Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY? 

A: Love is my big why - not just the butterflies in my stomach or the easy happy love - but the love that gives more than it takes, the simple and seemingly unnoticed love, the extravagant life changing selfless love, and the love that chooses to make the world a little bit more like heaven. 

Q: WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH BARRE?

A:  I started coming to barre when I was recovering from a major knee injury, and being able to build my strength and recover physically at the same time as be surrounded by such positivity, community, motivation, and encouragement had me fall in love with barre pretty much instantly.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

A:  To be more in the moment - to take it all in!

Q: WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH BARRE? 

A: The power of the movement and the effectiveness of the exercise. For years prior, I worked out with different methods and exercises, and none have transformed my body, or been as effective as barre. 

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?

A: Sweaty, intense, loud, fun, purposeful.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?

A:  I wish so much that I could have realized how much people are just truly worried and consumed with themselves. I worried so much (and sometimes still do) what others think of me. Fear of other's judgements has stopped me from doing so many things that I wish I could have just pushed through. As I have gotten older, I have realized that everyone has their own story and 'stuff'; and we are just all in the same boat often consumed with insecurity and fear. I have felt so much better working at letting go what others think and pursuing what has felt good and right for me.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR DAY JOB?

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?

A:  My why is my family. The opportunity to grow, build strength and share my love of movement with every client I see at the studio and every member of the BBS community that I interact with, is another small part of what drives me to do what I do. When I sweat, push myself a little harder, and share my enthusiasm and excitement for barre and the process of doing something for yourself, to better yourself; I become a better person in all areas of my life. To strive to be the best mother, wife, daughter and friend that I can be is my main focus, and the reason I get out of bed every morning.

A: The BBS tribe has always been welcoming, positive and authentic, and that in turn encourages me to bring the same uplifting vibrations to every aspect of my life.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?

A: My WHY is redefining what I can and can't do. Gritting my teeth and surprising myself with that one extra set completed at the end of a hard series. Realizing that I am much more capable than I think I am. Pushing my own limits. Seeing other people experience the same effect through barre, then having the trickle effect throughout their own lives; nothing better.
