Local Spotlight: The Pilates Barre
Jamie also holds a Health Science degree and is licensed as a Radiologic Technologist. Her ability to visualize the body from the inside allows her to truly understand how beneficial Pilates is both internally and externally. Jamie and her husband Dave, who met while teaching a group fitness class, opened The Pilates Barre because Jamie wanted to blend her knowledge of the human body with her contemporary approach to Pilates.
Jamie's main goal was to create a friendly, community studio where people would feel welcome, encouraged, and look forward to being active. The Pilates Barre was the perfect opportunity to do just that! Located at the SE corner of 7th St and Thunderbird, The Pilates Barre really is your neighborhood barre - the best Pilates studio in Phoenix.
Jamie will know your name, probably your dog’s name, and meet you at exactly where you are when it comes to the movement - there are no pre-set expectations. She takes pride in their inclusive, positive atmosphere, but no class comes without a challenge. Jamie says “we hope to reflect real life: working hard, feeling good, and rolling with whatever life is bringing.”
The Pilates Barre offers a large variety of class types, all levels, and state of the art Pilates apparatus and equipment. Classes are maxed out at 10 people to be sure each student gets proper attention from the instructor. They're currently offering online classes to those who would prefer to work out from home in the current environment. If you prefer to come into the studio, class times range from 5:30 AM for the early risers, throughout the day, and at 6 PM for the after-work crowd.
Jamie and Dave have 2 daughters and the studio is truly a family business. Her family can often be found in the studio helping out or participating in a class, health is truly a part of their livelihood and their lifestyle. They live in Moon Valley and are passionate about being part of the community both as business owners and neighbors. The intimate, neighborhood feel in the studio comes from being connected to and involved with the community.
When Jamie is not teaching Pilates she enjoys being with her family, practicing yoga, and being a Pilates student herself. There are very few Pilates exercises that she does not like but if pushed to choose a favorite she would say feet in straps! If you're interested in trying out a few classes, they offer a new client special. Jamie also posts regularly on Facebook sharing schedule updates, specials, and health and fitness-related tips - give her a follow to get the latest news. We hope to see you there!
