Barre Fit


This class is taught by:

Jill Strnad

Sarcastic, irreverent, and droll in demeanor and callipygian in appearance (and deeply humble), Jill is as atypical a yoga instructor as one could find. For one thing, she hates kale. She knows it's good for her, though, so she suffers it. The same is said of chair pose.

Jill came to yoga to heal what she often called irritatingly persistent knee injuries. It was the same knee, but different injuries each time. ("Well, thankfully it's not my good one" was her mantra.) But as her knee healed and she could once again stomp without a limp, other aspects of her life become more aligned and easier as well. A lightness in step crossed over to what one of her favorite authors would refer to as a lightness of being. In that regard, Jill absolutely believes in and is grateful for the healing power of yoga.

But she also believes, first and foremost, that yoga should be a safe and judgment-free zone where people can have fun and make their practices their own. Every body is different, and no pose looks the same. Every person comes to yoga for a different reason. And as such, Jill frequently says, "It's just yoga, y'all." If a yogi wants to spend an hour in Savasana, she absolutely would not care.

Kerri Olson

Kerri was born in the Deep South in Augusta, GA and raised in the heart of America in South Bend, IN. Her unique blend of southern charm and Midwest work ethic has continuously driven Kerri with a competitive, compassionate, and caring energy throughout her life and career.
 
Kerri's endeavors have included achieving her Masters in Speech Pathology, working as a certified Speech Therapist in both the health care and educational settings, raising 3 beautiful children and most recently becoming a fitness instructor. She completed the Burn at the Barre training and received her certification in the Fall of 2012, spin certification in 2013, completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in August of 2014 and power yoga extensions training in the Spring of 2015.

Kerri first discovered her desire for fitness competing in track, basketball, and softball as a young girl. She played softball at the Division 1 level at Ball State University. Kerri continues to have a passion for activities such as running, cycling, and yoga and continues to personally pursue these activities as a recreation, discipline, and as an important element of her lifestyle.

Kerri completed her Cycle/Kore training in the spring of 2013. She loves how a cycling class makes her feel energized and truly enjoys seeing her students benefit from their workout.

Kerri strives to make her classes inviting and fun yet challenging.

Patsy Juarez

Patsy, the owner of The Cycling Yogi and a Colorado native, grew up in the mountains of Colorado leading an active lifestyle. She enjoyed lifting weights and Rollerblading almost daily. Working the evening shift at the hospital, her philosophy was to “play” at the beginning of her day when she was energized and to earn a paycheck while she “recovered”. She moved to Denver in 1996 and earned her B.S. in Business Management from the University of Colorado. She is passionate about wellness and nutrition and enjoys studying these topics. Looking for a new workout, she discovered yoga. She attended classes for the exercise and found herself driving home afterward in a state of bliss. With regular practice she experienced less stress and back pain.
 
After falling in love with cycle/yoga, she began her training in the Fall of 2009 with the intent of opening her own studio to bring yoga to her community.  She has since been trained in yoga sculpt and is certified in TRX, Barre, Tabata Bootcamp and a 2nd 200 hr yoga certification.
 
Patsy enjoys teaching new students and gets excited when a student accomplishes something they didn't think they could do.  

Heidi Pachner

Heidi's motivation to teach group fitness is simply to inspire her clients to be the best versions of themselves. Her fitness background is rooted in barre, which has organically evolved into a passion for yoga.
 
Heidi appreciates the mind body connection that both barre and yoga have to offer. She also believes that fitness is for everyone and it is not a one size fits all undertaking. Heidi invites potential clients to embrace barre and yoga and the benefits that follow.
A sculpting workout developed from foundational Pilates and ballet dance movements with the use of a ballet bar, ball and small weights.  Upper body and ab sculpting in addition to small amounts of cardiovascular work.  Glutes on fire! 

Little movements make for big results!  Shoes or Toe Sox optional.
