I'm Andrea Isabelle Lucas, the founder of Barre & Soul Studios® and Barre & Soul Academy®. I'm also the Author of Own It All.
I have over a decade of experience with barre and the Lotte Berk tradition.
I've met far too many "barre teachers" who've been duped by faux training programs that teach yoga and cardio moves, add some weights and call it barre.
My team and I were determined to build the most comprehensive and authentic barre teacher curriculum possible, so we headed back to the source — to Esther Fairfax in England, the daughter of Lotte Berk, creator of barre, and the only person in the world qualified to certify other teachers in Lotte's true, pure, original barre methods.
After training with Esther and becoming certified in Lotte Berk's original barre training methods, we returned home and hunkered down to combine this with our own elite teacher training methodology and our experience in the business of barre.
We're real people just like you — I'm a mom with two kids and a crazy busy schedule. So we wanted to make sure that our teacher training was not just thorough and comprehensive, but also accessible to people who have jobs and lives and can't just drop everything to hoof it into the studio everyday for an in-person training program.
