What classes do you offer? Do you have beginner courses?
If you head on over to our Class Schedule, you can click on any class to find out what it is and if it’s a beginner, intermediate, or advanced class! After each class description is a key to help you decide. B means beginners, I means intermediate level students, and A means advanced level students. Most of our classes are suitable for beginners. Just remember when taking a class to listen to your body and take modifications and breaks as needed. Do not let being a beginner stop you from joining us. We were all beginners at one time!

We currently do not offer Kid specific classes, however anyone and everyone regardless of age can attend classes at the Zen Barre®. We do require a parent/guardian signs a waiver for anyone 17 and younger. We love when kids attend classes with their parents, it helps build a beautiful bond.
Can pregnant women take classes?
Women can still safely attend barre classes throughout their pregnancy. It is reported that barre classes have helped women maintain a healthy lifestyle during their pregnancy and that it helped them bounce back quicker after pregnancy. Barre is great for pregnant women because it is low impact cardio and safe on the joints. There are no bouncing around or jumping movements. All pregnant students must obtain verbal/written doctor approval for participating in any classes at The Zen Barre® while pregnant. Please let your instructor know you are pregnant prior to class starting.
Do I need to be flexible?
NO! People often say “I am not flexible enough to come.” Our response “ This is exactly why you NEED to come- get flexible with the Zen Barre®. Flexibility is created in classes.
Can I do this at home?
You can always take what you learn in class and practice at home, but of course we would rather see your beautiful face at our barre.
What do I wear?
Please leave your shoes and socks in the lobby upon arrival. We recommend Barre socks during Zen Barre® classes- socks help retain your body heat and keep you from slipping. We have gorgeous Zen Barre® socks for sale in the studio. These socks are great for every class style offered in the studio. You should wear pants, leggings, or capris that are comfortable and not loose fitting. Any type of top that covers your midriff is suitable.
