Behind the Barre 2019 | MAY


This week, we are celebrating a healthy 20-week anatomy scan of our growing baby girl. As my loving husband has brought to my attention, with fourteen active Barretenders, my commitment to take class from everyBarretender is essentially accomplishing a Local Barre Challenge, month over month—only now as an expecting Mama. True of any Local Barre Challenge, you, our most amazing staff, have held me accountable, empowered me, and consistently left me feeling stronger than I arrived. So, as long as my body continues to feel good, I’d like to attempt it one more month for May—shh, don’t tell Joe!
