Journey to the BARRE

Alice first stepped onto the yoga mat in 2009 and fell in love with the yoga practice.

She realised she was very flexible but lacked strength. That was when she started to do

circuit training and crossfit to build strength. In 2014 she took a 200-hour Power Vinyasa and Mindfulness Yoga Teacher Training to learn not only the physical practice, but also the mental and spiritual side of yoga.

Alice has been teaching yoga part-time since 2014 and continuously seeks further personal

development in the yoga practice. She continues teacher training in yoga therapy,

kids yoga, Dharma wheel yoga, and advanced hatha yoga. Along the way, Alice found barre and fell in love with the technique and core exercises! 

Alice at the BARRE

For those who know Alice, she’s very energised, positive, and direct. She can be

soft and hard-core depending on the class type as well as the energy of the class. She

provides different options ensuring everyone develops a “can-do” or “self-challenge”

attitude!

Besides BARRE

Alice realised her HEALTH improved over the years by practising yoga. Hence, she is

committed to her daily early morning yoga practice which has INSPIRED a lot of

her friends. Adding barre to her workout she finds not only FUN, but also further

improves her cardiovascular health. This formula is perfect!

Journey to the BARRE

Keisha has practiced yoga since 2011, when Alice first introduced Barre to Keisha, she immediately felt that this is the most effective way to train her muscle strength that helps her a lot for yoga practice! She decided to join the barre teacher training at Barre Formula and she is so happy could be part of the team.

Keisha at the BARRE

Once there’s a yoga teacher describe Keisha as a marshmallow, flexible and easy to do any shapes, which means no strength at all! Although she improved a lot through power yoga, vinyasa yoga practice, she found that Barre is the most effective way to train her strength.

She is a mild person and understands that everyone has different limitations and anatomy. She can express a complicated pose in a simple way, she won’t be pushy but encourage students to try their best and enjoy the class. Maybe you can’t do it today but you can do it the next day!

Outside BARRE

Keisha loves cooking, baking, reading and traveling. Not like other girls, she has no interests of make-up, Korean-drama nor shopping. She loves to eat good food and crazy for collecting different spices while traveling. She has a bunch of spice collection that make her cabinet almost full!​

Journey to Pilates

I became a BASI pilates instructor at AASFP in 2014 and did further education under Carolyne Anthony to learn movements that help strengthening the pelvic floor, teaching pre/post natal pilates and diastasis recti recovery. But my pursuit of wellness hasn't stopped, now as a certified holistic aromatherapist, the body and mind connection has never been stronger.

Elisa at the BARRE FORMULA

It started with an injury that only low impact exercises were feasible, with a combination of acupuncture and pilates, the recovery process was shorter than expected. After having discovered the power of pilates, I decided to become a pilates instructor and help others to experience the wonder of pilates.

Outside BARRE FORMULA

Elisa like to start with a quick relaxation on the floor to help finding the body alignment. You will find a full body workout with a slow yet control method that engages different groups of muscles while options are given to intensify the exercises.

Journey to the BARRE

Strong believer, that we need to go out of our comfort zone to evolve and reach our fullest potential, Sarah started yoga to challenge her body and most importantly her mind. 

 

By training at My Sore program, yoga helped her to find consistency, clarity and strength. To balance the intensity of Ashtanga practice, she is fully involved in pranayama, meditation and yin yoga practice. 

 

In addition, serious digestive issues brought her to look more into the connection between the brain and the belly. At the same time of her yoga teacher training, she took the whole food plant-based diet certification with Dr T Colin Campbell, author of the China Study. 

Based on her experience and knowledge about the body, nutrition, breathing and yoga, she developed a Yoga Detox session to help people to connect with their second brain.

Sarah at the BARRE FORMULA

Sarah is naturally involved to give the best clue to make the student feel the pose by enjoying the process of growing. Fully convinced that the best way to lift up herself is to lift someone else, she is sharing with other what she would love to know earlier when she started yoga.

Outside BARRE FORMULA

Sarah is fully convinced that holistic approach is the best to evolve, to become a better person for ourselves and for the others. 

 

That’s why besides yoga and physical practice, she is strongly involved in plant-based nutrition by giving talks during which she shared her tips about her journey!
