Our classic barre class with a twist. First, boost your metabolism and balance, and create stronger, leaner muscles through a sequence of strong-but subtle movements. Later, enjoy a drink at the bar. It’s the best of both worlds.
Restorative Strength Yoga
Restorative Strength Yoga focuses on alignment and mechanics, while learning to engage our strength, understanding anatomy, breath, and concentration. Students move through the fundamentals of postures, the slower the better, enabling students to know their anatomy and its connection to caring for our bodies, a way of holding ourselves upright, and new ways of experiencing strength. Classes are not centered on a ‘workout’ though they are intended to draw out concentration, strength, and relaxation, learning the difference of discomfort and pain, connecting the breath to effort, energy, and intentions.

Megan Leith, Owner / Head Barretender / Barre Instructor

Megan opened Barretend so that women can come together to share their passions. She wants to create a community where women feel supported at whatever stage of life they’re in. Classes that welcome anyone and fit our busy schedules.

Megan began doing barre as a means to offset running. She was not flexible. She wanted to incorporate some stretching and light weight training into her routine. And barre was the solution. Today, she feels stronger, but still has her days. Barretend isn’t a place for perfection. It’s a place where you don’t have to fear your inability. Not everyone will have their leg up high. In fact, hers will probably be the lowest.

Megan couldn’t have done this without her Dad. He is her inspiration. He taught her a lot about business and life. And Barretend wouldn’t be possible without him. She was so lucky to call him Dad and hopes he would be proud. Outside of Barretend, Megan loves to spend time with her husband and children.

Carrie Wert / Barretender / Yoga Instructor

Carrie has taught elementary age children at school for 18 years
and is also a mom of two little girls. In the last 4 years she discovered yoga. Even bigger, she found out that yoga can have a huge positive impact on children. Carrie found herself going to work with a new sense of presence and patience with her students. She learned how to listen and realized that for so many years she had been doing it so wrong…always rushing around caught up in getting the material covered and worrying about getting to the next lesson on time. Carrie learned to slow down and appreciated her students in a new way. Bringing yoga to her classroom changed her students for the better. Through yoga, Carrie has learned that you can’t take care of others until you take care of yourself. She is certified in children’s yoga and has since held many yoga camps and taught many yoga classes to young children. She loves to watch children respond to learning that they can find calm and peace within their bodies and feels lucky to be able to share her love of teaching yoga with children.
