You must be 18 years or older. Having a background in yoga, Pilates, or fitness would help tremendously.

Course Requirements:
  • Complete all online assignments, videos and quizzes.
  • Submit a video of yourself teaching a 60 minute Zen Barre® class within 90 days of course completion.
  • Submit a practice log showing that you have attended at least 5 other Barre classes for reference and greater understanding.
Certification Terms:
  • Cost of Online Training Certification: $295.00. *Due to proprietary materials all fees are non-refundable. No exchanges and no transfers.
  • Certification is not complete until the Zen Barre® Staff has had time to review and approve your final video. From the date of completion of all certification materials and video submission you will hear back from our organization within 60 days.
  • Not all participants pass the video review on the first try, as the Zen Barre® is a brand and we want to make sure instructors are a good representation of the brand. We will support all students to completion and share feedback about what can be done to pass if this does not occur with the first submission. *If you do not pass the video the first time around, a $30.00 video resubmission fee is required.
  • Completion of the Certification does not guarantee a job offer within the Zen Barre® organization. When teaching the Zen Barre® format class at the studio or on the road for the Zen Barre®, minimum credentials must be met, and from there, the company must also feel that the instructor is a good match in communication, working style, etc. before a job offer is extended.
  • Once certified you are free to teach anywhere outside a 5 mile radius of the flagship studio, located in Dallas, PA.
