SHAY, owner, yoga & barre

Shay's love affair with fitness began with cheer and dance during her school years, but expanded to include triathlons, marathons and spinning upon graduation. After years of high-intensity training, Shay needed a low-impact exercise to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis. She discovered a love for barre because it combined strength with low-impact exercises. She coupled barre with yoga, which she'd been prating and teaching for the past 9 years, to create the ultimate fitness routine.

Shay has been AFFA group fitness certified for over 10+ years. She’s obtained her 200-hour registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. She has her Barre certification, and booty barre certification, and spin certification. She creates and teaches barre certification classes and refresher courses for her staff.

SERENA, yoga

I am a compassionate and refreshing teacher known for challenging and encouraging her students in all environments. Using a physical practice that facilitates mental growth, she can guide all levels of yoga per the capabilities of her students. Serena’s passion lies within helping find balance and peace in the body and space we inhabit. “Yoga is self study, one which you will never know all answers, always learning, always being a work in progress.” I teach Vinyasa, Hatha, Yoga Nidra and Yin. I enjoy nature and being outside with friends and my dog. Relieve tension from the body, and stress from the mind. Come take a class today!

KRISTEN, barre

I grew up participating in a variety of sports and group fitness classes. After hearing so many wonderful things about SBL, I decided to give it a try and instantly fell in love.
Serena (above) encouraged me to take the barre certification class. I love teaching Barre and am always bettering myself in order to better serve my students. Come challenge yourself alongside me!

KARIN,  barre & capoeira  After practicing Capoeira for nearly a decade, one thing I love most is that it continues to challenge me physically. I’m so excited to bring Capoeira to the students of SBL!  Leaving my first Barre class, I found myself asking the front desk at where people go to get certified to teach Barre. Ten months, and close to 100 classes later, I signed up for a Barre certification class at SBL and the rest is history. Seeing my strength, body knowledge and confidence increase through such a fun and varied workout has been really motivation. I am so honored to be on the SBL team and to share my enthusiasm for Barre & Capoeira with each of our students.

An accountant by day and yoga instructor by night, she’s a huge advocate of creating a healthy work-life-balance and desires to bring mindfulness, body awareness and empowerment to her students.

BEAU,  owner  The true power of SBL runs through Beau. Students may see him around the studio living the true pleasure of any dog…lounging, sleeping, eating and waiting for any student to rub his belly.

JORDIN,  yoga  Teaching yoga is my passion. It grew from discovering how much of an escape yoga was or me, and how it made all the challenges in my life faceable. I aim for my classes to be just that, an escape. A place you can go to and just forget about the world for 60 minutes. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Fusion and Yin with a craving to learn more so I can bring more into each class. NAMASTE.

ALYSSA, barre

Whether it’s in the classroom or the studio, I love teaching, seeing growth, and celebrating the accomplishments (big or small!) of my students. Supporting people in reaching their goals is the most fulfilling and rewarding work that can be done. I hope to support you in reaching your health and fitness goals!

JENNIFER, yoga

I started yoga to help with a lower back injury in 2012. In 2015, I completed my 200 hour Hatha teacher training and 200 hour Power Vinyasa teacher training. The trainings started me on a journey of self-discovery. I have attended other workshops for Sculpt, Yin and Wall. Then in 2018, I completed my Barre certification. I love being both a student and a teacher that can use the knowledge I have learned to help others.

BAILEY , yoga & barre  I began yoga in 2010 for mental clarity and then I realized it was a great workout too! Yoga helped with my flexibility and hip mobility, and I loved how it made me feel so I took the leap and completed my Yoga teacher training through CorePower yoga in 2014. I enjoyed teaching so much, I got my Barre certification shortly after that! I enjoy developing challenging, intelligent sequences that allow my students to feel confident in more ways than one. I love connecting with students and having fun in my classes!

KATHY, yoga

I started practicing Hot Yoga in 2012, and had always been an outdoors girl embracing running, cycling and hiking. This was so very different, yet I found that the mind and body connection Yoga provided allowed me to become stronger! I have been forever changed by the gift Yoga has given and so passionate to help others, that I decided to go through teacher training. I completed my 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified teacher training program. I am so honored and excited to guide students through class and watch as their own practice grows. They are my inspiration which is why I will continue to expand my training knowledge so that I may share this with them. See you in the hot room my friends . . . Namaste.

ERIKA, yoga & barre

After the arrival of a special needs child and a debilitating joint injury in 2009, I began to take my self-taught practice to another level, using Yoga to heal the injury and find peace amidst chaos.

I started teaching Barre in 2016 after listening to the Universe guiding me to it, and at this point I really discovered my joy for teaching others and guiding them through ways to help themselves feel better.

I decided I wanted to expand the ways I could help people by becoming a Yoga instructor as well, and after 15 years of personal practice, I took a RYT-200 hour training.

I look forward to seeing you at the Barre or on your mat!

JENI, barre

I fell in love with SBL in November 2016 when looking for relief from chronic neck pain. The feeling of family kept me coming back, until suddenly, it was my weekly routine and the pain was gone. I became a certified Barre instructor in June 2017.

ELIZABETH,  barre  After a severe injury left me immobile and in chronic pain in 2014, I needed something to help heal and strengthen my broken body. That was when I discovered barre. I fell in love with the classroom energy, bumping music and unique mixture of ballet, yoga and pilates that would make you sweat! After an amazing opportunity came up, I became a certified instructor at Studio Barre and Lounge! I am excited and ready to meet you where you are at in your own journey.
