B CORE Flow


This class is taught by:

Kirsten Tullis

Height: Just right

YOUR B BODY: Working out for the last glass of vino in the bottle. Our studio is the best audience for my audacious sense of humour. Let’s face it, barre is a little dirty. I keep coming back though, the internal satisfaction of knowing I worked hard, challenged myself, and had enough influence on our clients, their day, their mood, to have them smile or focus so hard on an excercise and watch them flourish and strengthen.

DANCE EXPERIENCE: Since in utero! I’ve always moved to the music, or danced to the beat of my own drum. Ballet since I was a wee sprite of 5 years. Modern contemporary since I was a teenager.

FAVORITE CHILDHOOD FASHION FAD: Welly boots! Or as the Canadians call them rubber boots. I had one in almost every colour as a child! I’d wear them with shorts, dresses, skirts. Basically with anything, including fancy dress. I currently own 3 pairs!

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: Adventure, travel plans, lists (lists for everything—post-its for barre). Chocolate.. well I could but you might not want to talk to me as I can turn into the grinch

FAVORITE FOOD/DRINK: Sauvignon blanc— New Zealand my fav! Bubbly!! The real kind. Truffle fries ( but only after I’ve done a double barre class). Chocolate isn’t a favourite, it’s actually necessity

CURRENT HOBBIES: Barre, dance, outdoors in any capacity, reading.

OCCUPATION: RN

WORDS TO LIVE BY: “If you are comfortable, you are not challenging yourself. If you are not challenging yourself you aren’t growing. Take a chance, take a leap. You won’t know until you try. Sometimes you need to walk away to gain perspective. That’s OK. You can, you should and if you’re brave enough you will. Stand up for what you believe is right. Follow your gut. Listen to that quiet little voice before she starts screaming I told you so! ”

Mary Jo Liew

Why do you barre so hard? Having danced growing up I missed the studio vibe and classical movements of ballet when working out. I have always made a point of being active but getting to the gym sometimes felt like a chore. The combination of dance, pilates and yoga inspired moves set to upbeat music is the perfect balance between form, function and fun. The workout is low impact yet effective and I know if I am a little sore the next day I have had a good workout. Exercising isn’t a chore anymore and look forward to the days when I can hit the studio.

Enjoy the little things – what little things make you smile? My little guy Jack. He is always full of smiles and makes me laugh all the time. Watching him grow is the best thing ever. I also have a dog named Charlie. He is a black Goldendoodle, otherwise known as the happiest furry teddy bear around.

YOUR B BODY: I love the satisfying feeling I get when I push my body as far as it will go. When I push myself to the breaking point, bringing on the shakes, I feel stronger than I did yesterday!

DANCE EXPERIENCE: I danced for sixteen years. I have also participated in cheerleading and gymnastics.

FAVORITE CHILDHOOD FASHION FAD: Anything Disney! When I was a kid I was obsessed with Peter Pan and even attempted to fly! Thank goodness I was not hurt too bad, but I quickly learned my lesson.

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: I can’t live without my friends and family definitely. They are everything to me!

WORDS TO LIVE BY: “I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.”- Eleanor Roosevelt

Emily Fleming

Height: 5’6”

YOUR B BODY: I love the body I have because it's something that I've consciously made. Through running, lifting, spinning, and barre I've made a vessel that I'm completing comfortable in and respect daily. I also love my barre body because it lets me do things BETTER. I'm an avid hiker. Since going to barre I've noticed that the increased strength I have in in my accessory muscles allows me to climb without fatiguing as quickly. I've also noticed improved recovery.

DANCE EXPERIENCE: I danced for 13 years at Devon School of Dance. Tap was my favorite but I did ballet, jazz and contemporary as well. Shoutout to Studio B client Kim Ehlers who owns Devon School of Dance. So fun running into her at barre after 5+ years apart.

FAVORITE CHILDHOOD FASHION FAD: I wasn't big into fashion but I had like three lulu lemon scuba hoodies that I would zip all the way up to my chin and thought I looked hella fresh in.

CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: My eyebrows

FAVORITE FOOD/DRINK: Lentil bolognese, pasta, homemade bread, IPAs, vegan lasagna. It goes on.

CURRENT HOBBIES: Knitting, craft beer, reading, kayaking, hiking

OCCUPATION: Dietitian

WORDS TO LIVE BY: “Your softness is not your weakness. Your kindness is your strength.” R.h. Sin

YOUR B BODY: Without barre my post-pregnancy body would be wayyyy more squishy and my butt would be sagging to the floor

Building on the foundation of B Barre 60, B CORE Flow slows down the movement to turn up the flow. With an increased focus on breath, movement, flow, and flexibility this class will target the core from start to finish. We may have taken out the cardio, but that doesn’t mean we have taken out the intensity. Get ready to flow your way to a stronger, tighter core.
