meet the instructors of simply barre


 

KarenHeadShotKaren, Lead Instructor 

Karen found her way to her first Barre class in 2013 as a way to recreate the childhood nostalgia of years of ballet classes. What she found; however, was a place where she could truly be present in each musical beat, body movement, and heart sound. Karen embraces the idea of helping her students find their own joyful movement while accepting and loving the body they are in. Her passion for her own body acceptance is what drives her to be a part of others' healthy living journeys. For Karen, it is an incredible opportunity to be a part of the day that you chose as part of taking care of your body, mind, and spirit. Meet her at the barre, where all you need is a willingness to listen to your own body and the desire to groove to whatever music is playing!

Catyn
 

Catyn's love affair with barre began only a short time ago when she was told she "probably wouldn't be good at it because she was never a dancer." Given her Italian and Portuguese heritage, stubbornness flows naturally through her blood, and thereafter she was determined to master the art of the "pretzel".  In her spare time, Catyn likes to travel (30 countries and counting), hang out with her pups Fred and Lola, root for the Bruins and sing 90's rap songs at any and all karaoke bars.

Erica
 

Erica grew up in Medfield and began dancing at the age of 5. She competed in dance throughout school and during college she became the Vice President of the Providence College Dance Company. Once Erica graduated, she wanted to find a class that would help her stay in shape and maintain flexibility. About a year ago, she tried her first barre class and knew she found the perfect exercise for her body and 10 months later she became a certified barre instructor. 

Erica is excited to share her passion for barre with her students and hopes they will leave each class feeling strong and fulfilled!

HeatherHeadShotHeather

Heather took her first barre class in the summer of 2012 when in search of a new and refreshing way to workout, and she has never stopped! Barre helped Heather to shape and tone her body like no other fitness class she had ever taken, and the studio became a place for her to dedicate time to herself each day. Heather took her passion for barre one step further by pursuing her teaching certification. Through her love for barre she hopes to help other people discover this amazing form of exercise. Heather became a certified barre teacher in January 2016 and is now excited to join the Simply Barre team! She feels that everyone should try a barre class, at least once. You will not regret it...although your thighs might ;)
