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.
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! ”
The original 60 minute class which incorporates full body, isometrics and mobility exercises into one jam packed, leg shaking, core blasting, muscle lengthening workout! The signature barre class of Studio B and the foundation for all other barre class variations.
