Long Strong Arms


This class is taught by:

Lauren Chow

Name: Lauren    Hometown: Saskatoon, SK   Why do you barre so hard? 
For the beats, the motivation, and the connection to one’s body. There 
is nothing like hearing that beat drop when you go into that combo 
movement and you whisper to yourself, “You got this…” (or is that just
 me?) The barre community here is so welcoming, inspiring, and 
empowering. Barre has pushed me further in my physical and mental 
state. If I push myself to hold that squeeze just a little longer at the 
barre, I can push myself to do a lot more!   Tell us something that we don’t know about you!   I’m a tap dancer! I’ve grown up tap dancing unofficially since I was 2
(thanks to my sis) and officially when I was 4! That’s why I love music 
that has a good beat to it. It’s instinctual for me groove out to that kind of music.

Why do you barre so hard?
Because why not? I’ve always been a very ‘Challenge Accepted!’ kind of gal, and I love barre for the physical, mental, and endurance challenges it provides. Barre is
stimulating in so many ways! It brought me back to my dancer body and mind, and it
feels so good to be in a position of pursuit again.

Hometown: Devon, AB
 
Why do you barre so hard?
 
I barre so hard because no matter how many classes I come to, I can
never predict what the instructor is going to bring, and I can always find
something in my form, or my effort that needs improvement. I also love
barre because of the community. The clients, and the staff are second to 
none, and the studio has definitely become a place of comfort and solace
in my crazy life.
 
 Favorite way to treat yourself?
 
Lush bath bombs with a bottle sized glass of wine

Hometown: Castor, AB

Why do you barre so hard?
Barre makes me feel strong, clears my head and gives me the energy to keep up with my busy 3 year old.

What is a secret talent of yours?
I can touch my tongue to my nose. I also bake, knit, embroider, and do paper cut illustrations.

Kirsten Tullis

Name: Kirsten Tullis
 
Hometown: Durban, South Africa

Why do you barre so hard?
I barre so hard for the results. I love the endorphins and the positive attitude I leave the class with. I love what barre has done to my body. I love the fact I need to go out and buy a bigger pair of jeans to fit my butt, and a smaller top to fit my waist.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what would you bring with you?
Sun cream, a great book, rum and coke in a giant cooler.
This class is designed to have you winning push up contests in no time! Structured like our signature Barre Body Fit class, you can expect to get a full body workout while focusing on your arms. More weights, more upper body resistance, more reasons to wear tank tops all year round
