Walk a few blocks down Newbury Street, and you’re almost guaranteed to see a barre studio. Leave the Back Bay, though, and you’ll have to work a little harder to find places to tuck and pulse.
Local mini chain Barre & Soul, however, is out to bring more barres to more places. Next up? It’s adding a studio at 171 Amory Street in Brookline, set to open on Saturday, September 10.
Brookline is already home to a small handful of barre studios, but owner and founder Andrea Isabelle Lucas says it’s an area that can benefit from Barre & Soul’s goal of spreading community-focused, mind-body fitness throughout the city and beyond.
