Why train with Barre Body?

While Barre is our heritage, Barre Body could very well be known as “Pilates Body” (not quite as catchy). Because from day one, we have been running our signature flowing and fun Pilates Mat classes at studios across Australia, and teaching tens of thousands of aspiring instructors. Whether it is from our graduates or our clients, we hear the same thing time and time again: our Pilates Mat classes are truly something special. That’s because we don’t just teach the repertoire. You’ll learn all the exercises of course, but more importantly, we’ll teach you how to sequence your classes with dynamic layering, seamless transitions, and unique variations. You’ll learn not just what to teach, but why and how. And as a result, you’ll graduate knowing how to design flowing, feel-good, fun Pilates classes that your clients will love you for.
