What to Expect

No experience required. Our classes are designed to make everyone feel welcome and get a great workout. Wear yoga-like attire (socks are optional) and bring a water bottle. We supply all props needed. We encourage new clients to arrive 15 minutes early to get a tour and meet your instructor.

Play Lounge

It’s easy to fit exercise into your life when you can bring the kids. Minors under 18 years of age are welcome. If minors are on the premises while guardians are in class, you must purchase a play lounge package. Reservations are highly recommended. Please reserve under your name and not your child’s name.


Barre3 is functional training with a twist. Rooted in three fitness disciplines—ballet barre, pilates and yoga—barre3 workouts will have you feeling strong and balanced inside and out. We’re known for building lean muscles, a strong core, and long-term postural benefits.

Maureen Beran
Maureen Beran
Studio Owner

Maureen Beran left higher education administration in early 2018 after building a passion for barre3. She learned about barre3 from the podcast, “How I Built This,” with Guy Raz. After hearing the barre3 founder, Sadie Lincoln, speak about the company’s mission and values, she immediately searched for a studio but was disappointed to learn that the closest studio was four hours away. She then learned about the online barre3 offerings and began building her practice, alone, in her basement. She developed greater confidence, strength, and balance-- both physically and mentally. She then wanted to share this passion and health with others and began the steps to open her own studio. She is stronger than ever, and with the support of her husband, Sam, and two sons, Ian and Neil, she is thrilled to begin her journey as a studio owner.

Pre + Postnatal

Moms-to-be and new moms love barre3. If you’re pregnant or postpartum, consult with your doctor before taking barre3 classes. Please arrive early to class and check in with your instructor, who will provide alternative postures appropriate for pregnant or postpartum clients.
