Why train with Barre Body?

Reformer Pilates was once the realm of rehab-focused clinical sessions (necessary but a touch boring – don’t tell!). Now in-demand everywhere from boutique studios to big name gyms, Reformer Pilates has become more dynamic, creative, and fitness-focused. It’s so in-demand that it’s become our most popular course. Not only because clients everywhere are screaming out for Reformer, but because Barre Body’s style is as unique as it is effective. Our Reformer course teaches you not just the repertoire, but how to teach it. We’ll show you how to confidently design flowing, fun Reformer classes that transition seamlessly (keeping those spring changes to a minimum) while offering a great workout, no matter who’s in your class.
