Power BARRE


This class is taught by:

Amy Hollens

Methods: Power BARRE, Power Reformer
 
Originally from Orange County, Ca, Amy is a former professional dancer and certified Barre instructor, and has been teaching for over 10 years. As a professional dancer, she performed with numerous theatres in Southern California as well as places like Disneyland, House Blues Hollywood, and on ships with the Holland America Cruise Line. She spent seven years kickin’ it as a Radio City Rockette in New York, where she first discovered Barre. She immediately fell in love with the technique because it combined two of her favorite things- dance and fitness. After sustaining a broken foot and undergoing shoulder surgery, Barre became her go-to during recovery as the best low-impact workout that had a high enough intensity to maintain her strength. About a year into working at TRIBE, she went through the Power Reformer training, so you can now see her in the front studio as well! Get ready for high energy, music based classes focused on specific muscle group strength and conditioning, with one or two (or three or four) jokes thrown in. She feels very blessed to have the opportunity to share her love of Barre and fitness with the TRIBE family!

Julie Smith

Methods: Power BARRE, Reformer Pilates, Tone and Stretch, Yoga
 
Julie discovered Pilates after years of equestrian injuries caught up with her busy life. She holds mat certifications through Power Pilates and Balanced Body, comprehensive equipment through PhysicalMind Institute, and Prenatal/Postnatal Recovery specialized training through Fusion Pilates. The Gyrotonic® method deepened and expanded her movement practice. Creating Better Barre to make form-focused, Pilates based Barre classes accessible and fun, she opened Barre Up in Raleigh, NC and has trained teachers in boutique studios and fitness clubs. She added her 200 RYT and Buti® Yoga certifications to take the intensity of Kundalini yoga into a dynamic and active format. She enjoys weaving snippets of all these disciplines into every class.

Striving to teach the bodies in front of her in open and welcoming classes, Julie creates mind-body connection with sometimes quirky imagery to generate tangible results - and laughter! Her happiest moments are seeing her clients excelling in their daily lives with focus and poise.

This class blends together the best of Pilates, yoga, and body sculpting. Get a complete body workout through a high intensity and low impact class that tones your muscles with isolated movements, isometric exercises, and light weights complimented by a continual fat burning process. This class tones your seat, abdominals, thighs, arms as well as strengthens your legs, back, and improves your posture. You will use our own body weight for resistance targeting each of your muscle groups to the point of fatigue. Then, you will stretch those muscles in a way that promotes long and lean muscle growth developing a long and lean physique.

Classes utilize light weights, exercise balls, bands and, of course, TRIBE's ballet barre, to lengthen and align the body. Space is limited to 12 TRIBE community members.

If your goals include rock-solid glutes, toned and shaped thighs, and super-cut arms (IOW, the bod of a God), then reserve your spot for Power Barre today. We’d love to have you! Grip socks recommended (available for purchase).
