"Barre & Soul teacher training is amazing! Over five weekends, I formed friendships with a great group of women who were so supportive and encouraging. I looked forward to each session and the studio became my happy place. Andrea is amazing to work with and she helped each one of us break through our barriers in order to become the best barre teachers that we could be. It's one of the best decisions I've made and I would do it again in a heartbeat."

Is your Barre Class a fake?

Barre workouts have recently gone mainstream after decades as a niche offering with an almost cult-like following for its ability to deliver transformational results.

The industry hasn’t caught up with this explosion in popularity. This means no one is moderating or monitoring the dozens of studios that have popped up calling themselves “barre.”

I want to advocate for the real deal. And by “real” I mean authentic barre studios that are practicing in the tradition of the Lotte Berk method — where barre was born with thought, rigor and a thorough background in movement to inform the practice. By “real” I mean studios that devote time to ensure their instructors are thoroughly trained, knowledgeable and capable of delivering excellence in authentic barre to a wide range of clients. This level of training takes time and certainly can’t be taught in just a weekend. Read more >>>


"This training taught me to remove ‘me’ from the spotlight and make teaching about my community. Andrea instills in her students a passion for leading, reminding us that we’re strong, skillful and beautiful, and teaches us how to impart this onto our students; encouraging them to feel the same way. Andrea’s capacity to empower and inspire the women around her comes from a truly authentic self.”
