Barre Fit


This class is taught by:

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.

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.

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.  

Stephanie Maes

Steph never thought she would do a yoga class, much less teach. She made fun of her mom for years for doing yoga. In 2007 she was diagnosed with PTSD ( post traumatic stress disorder). She couldn't handle being in public areas with big crowds. She thought she was going to have to drop out of college due to panic attacks as walked through the crowded hallways. She became depressed and really thought thought there would be no end since there is no "cure" for PTSD.
 
Her mom convinced her to try a cycle yoga class. She thought she was going to throw up during the cycle part, but fell in love with the yoga.  She continued to attend class, and became more graceful and fluid in her yoga practice as she noticed her anxiety beginning to vanish.  She moved out of the mountains and into the city, continuing her studies during the day and working the night shifts as a police dispatcher. She picked up American Tribal Style Belly dance to keep her sanity and build confidence.  She loved yoga so much she decided to attend yoga teacher training.   She wasn't sure if she wanted to teach, but in the end decided that this was the path for her! She teaches Yoga, Cycle, Barre, and Gymnastics. She plans to get certified in Tribal dance in 2014.
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.
