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.

James was a professional dancer and musician and so much more. All of his life experience comes forward in his classes. His reformer classes tend to be thoughtful and fun, but he always tailors the class to his clients' fitness goals. He wants you to learn concepts of moving and posture while having fun and feeling it the next couple days, or 6! Nicknames he's had: Joe jr, Wizard, Nerd, Sargent, and at Tribe he might be known as the Dictator.

Susan holds a B.A. in Theater Arts from the University of California at Santa Cruz and is also trained in Ballroom Dance and instruction. She originally came to Pilates through Lisa Graham, founder and owner of Agile Monkey Pilates in Santa Cruz, California. Pilates taught Susan how to understand and work with many of her postural deviations, with which she constantly struggled as a performer. She studied for several years with Jeannette Palmer who inspired and encouraged her to pursue teaching. Susan received her training and certification from Pilates Academy International in New York City. She taught as a senior instructor at Pilates on Fifth and as a recurring substitute instructor at Mark Morris Dance Center. She welcomes students of all fitness levels and incorporates modifications appropriate for each individual to ensure that the everyone is working optimally and safely for their own body, skill level, and background.
This classic Pilates Reformer class focuses on the body as a whole, to increase flexibility, strength, balance, agility, create a stronger core, improved mental well-being and a fuller range of motion. All while turning the abdominal muscles, lower back and hips into your body’s powerhouse.

Because Reformer Pilates is a non-impact, balanced technique, it’s great for just about anyone—from the super-fit, to beginners to those coming back from an injury. Space is limited to 10 TRIBE members per class. Grip socks required (available for purchase).
