An open letter to our community:



Dear BBS family,


Over the years, small pieces of BBS have evolved, yet our purpose of empowering others to live their best lives has remained the same. Written in our own words below, you’ll see that you have had the same impact on us. Thank you for allowing us into your lives.


To say that being a part of Barre Body Studio has changed my life would be an understatement. Not only did the studio help me get in shape physically, but the friendships and connections I’ve made over the years are still some of the most significant and impactful in my life. This community is unbelievably accepting and generous, and I am truly blessed to have been a part of it for so long. Thank you to each and every client who has taken a class from me or with me by their side over the years; sweating with you has filled me up more than I can say. To my fellow instructors and Marlo, it has truly been one of the best experiences of my life learning from you and growing with and because of you all. Thank you, 🖤 Crystal Xx

I am so grateful to have been part of this amazing community consisting of inspiring, strong, and empowering humans. This space (be it physical or virtual) has allowed me to grow as a person, move my body and create healthy relationships that I know will last a lifetime, all while pushing me through some of the most pivotal years of my life. Words cannot express how much BBS means to me and has helped shape my adult life. ~ Nicole

Being part of the BBS community for the past 8 years has been life-changing for me. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have had to lead and attend classes over the years. BBS has been a place of healing where I always felt welcomed and empowered. I will forever be grateful for all of the lessons I have learned at BBS. ~ Danna

I will forever be so grateful to the entire bbs family, both instructors, and clients, for letting me share my energy and creativity each week. BBS has been such a bright and positive part of my life in so many ways, and I am so thankful to have been a part of this wonderful and supportive community. Thank you to the whole BBS family, it has truly been a privilege. ~ Heather

This journey over the past decade is hard to put into words. It was beautiful, sweaty, hard, lifting, energizing, restorative and therapy all wrapped into one. For me, the pure joy I felt teaching classes came from seeing each one of you. When you gave it your all, by giving it one pulse, plié or jack. Seeing you smile at yourself, sometimes through tears, was my why. Helping you see YOU and alllll that you are capable of, that you showed up for YOU was my why. Keep showing up. Keep. Showing. Up. I hope that I’m some small way the classes we took together in person or virtually had a positive impact on your lives. You have all left an immense stamp on my soul. ~ Tara


I started BBS out of a community centre in 2012 and cannot believe all of the fantastic people I’ve met and the incredible memories that I’ve made over the past decade. It is hard to put into words the impact owning, operating, and creating this business has had on my life. From day one, I knew BBS was something special. I could feel it in every inch of my body. Over the years, the studios and online platforms became a place to unplug and reconnect with ourselves and each other. A place where everyone feels welcome and accepted as they are. I’d like to thank all of you for making the studios and online classes what they were. By showing up for yourself, you showed up for us and allowed us to grow more passionate week after week. BBS community, you have forever changed my life, and I hope that our paths will continue to cross in this lifetime. With gratitude and light. Love, Marlo
