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!

Stephanie took her first barre class at Simply Barre in 2016 on a whim and a smartly purchased gilt voucher. After one class she was hooked and became a regular fixture at the barre. As someone who grew up hating any type of sport or gym class activity, Stephanie believes in the power of barre to transform anyone regardless of experience both mentally and physically. Stephanie’s passion for barre is matched only by her passion for the Simply Barre community. Two years later she decided to step up her barre game and become an instructor. She is excited to help grow the community and share barre with others looking for a new challenge and good seat kicking.
