The mission of Barre Vida® is to bring movement to every life. It is a total body workout open to women and men of all fitness levels that blends  the original Lotte Berk method with exercise science, Pilates, and dance. Barre Vida is a low impact toning class that predominantly works the slow twitch muscle fibers to result in a toned body, higher endurance levels, increased core and joint stability, and body fat reduction. Barre Vida uses isometric and isotonic exercises with small hand weights and other modalities. Barre Vida will improve posture, give muscle definition, increase flexibility, and encourage weight loss. It can be done in a studio with or without a ballet barre. The class is built with a specific playlist in which the BPM matches the movements in the exercise to work the muscle properly and make the class fun! Expect to have fun and leave sweaty!

Last weekend I got Barre certified with Barre Vida! Barre Vida is the only barre program I have been to where there is a true knowledge of exercise science and no reliance on buzz words. My booty and abs are still sore from this grueling 2-day process!” — Kiki Andrews, NYC


Joanna (AKA Jo) Stone

Hi, I’m Jo and I created Barre Vida based on my knowledge of barre workouts, dance, fitness, and physical therapy exercises. Understanding the body from within (somatic awareness) is my research. Educating others to understand their bodies is my job. Empowering students to reach their personal fitness and health goals is my passion. Dance is my art. Barre Vida is an extension of my personal mission to bring movement back into life starting at the barre. I am fitness instructor certified with AFAA, a RYT, and have an MA and BA in dance.
