Bari Studio co-founders Brice Hall and Alexandra Perez
I’m a fan of Bari Studio’s method because it offers a different approach to working out that keeps me interested. The Bari team describes it as a combination of “the cardio rush you get from running or spinning, the muscle alignment and core strength you get from Pilates, the coordination and muscle alignment you see from dance, and the flexibility and range of motion you achieve from Yoga.” The result? That enviable, hard-to-achieve, long-and-lean body type associated with certain yoga-obsessed starlets and prima ballerinas—or so I hope, anyway.
For the next six weeks I will attend at least 10 Bari classes per week. In addition to the grueling exercise schedule, I will cut out dairy, sugar, and processed foods. And once a week I’ll chat with Bari’s resident nutritionist, Shayna Hiller, to make sure I’m staying on track. In six weeks I hope to look, and feel, like a new person—lighter and rid of winter lethargy. Stay tuned…
