There are some things worth believing in with all your might.
Things like the perfect leather jacket and mimosas for breakfast.
Another one of those things is the obsession that happens when you discover something you never knew existed before—something that could change everything.
That’s what we’re humbled to say Barre & Soul® has been for so many of our students: a total, wild card game changer. So many times we hear, “I kept meaning to sign-up, but I never did, and I never did, and I never did, and then one day, I finally just said ‘HEALTH YEAH’—and then basically went on to discover the meaning of life.” (Or, at least, that exercise didn’t have to suck.)
Because the way we work out at Barre & Soul® isn’t like anything you’ve ever done before. Sure, you might’ve taken a barre class, and you’ve probably done a yoga pose now and again, but here, it’s not just about the exercise, but what it means when we do it.
