We’re here to guide you every step of the way. You can ask questions at any time online and they will be answered by a lead trainer almost immediately. You will also gain lifetime access to our Facebook community of trainees and graduates.
This training is not a syllabus or licensing program. We teach you the art of sequencing and class planning, so you can design your own unique classes. Our graduates are teaching worldwide – giving you the freedom to teach anywhere.
Get job ready
We don’t just teach the anatomy and the sequencing, but how to be an exceptional teacher. That means support in applying for jobs at your dream studios, industry connections and continued education opportunities. Fancy adding some creative repertoire into your mix or honing in on prenatal classes? Well fancy that, it’s what we specialise in. Tailoring programs to support your unique career path is our love language. (That, and croissants.)

I was looking for a comprehensive course, that could fit in with my business, and I chose Barre Body because I really liked what they had to offer.
Kylie Morrison – Studio Owner
Learning that Barre was a mixture, of ballet, yoga and Pilates, it just intrigued me to be part of the community as a Barre lover. The girls in the group and the friendships formed have just been priceless. The teachers are just so caring, and I felt like I was in the Barre family.
Liesl Visagie – Graduate
My life has changed, in the way that I now choose to go with my gut instincts, a lot more than I ever used to. If you are considering the training, I would say, believe in yourself, go for it, and if you have a passion, you will succeed.
Alicia Price – Studio Owner
I love learning about the anatomy and how to be more knowledgeable and how to be a good teacher, and to continue to learn and grow in the field. I have referred Barre Body to some of my friends who have asked which places to train with.
Alana Joy Dintinosante – Graduate
I chose Barre Body because I knew some other people who had already done the Barre Body course and people in the industry who I respected. The training was absolutely amazing. I can’t speak highly enough of the Facilitors.It’s definitely worth the investment.
