If Barre Bliss looks familiar, it’s because its unique take on barre workouts was featured on CBS Minnesota WCCO. In real life, as on television, instructors led by owner Mia Jenneman—recently featured in HERLIFE magazine— and co-owner Shad Holland introduce each student to a warm, inviting, and challenging experience in their specially formulated version of barre fitness.
Drawing upon Mia's experience as a classically trained dancer and yoga practitioner and inspired by STOTT Pilates techniques, the custom workout system promotes torso control and a strong abdominal wall while imparting meditative form and position fundamentals. The result is an intense session that activates tiny muscles as well as full muscle chains, resulting in a full-body workout that both sculpts frames and sheds pounds. Designed with beginners in mind, the system also imparts knowledge of the graceful movements and fluid transitions of dances throughout the ages and caters to students of all shapes and sizes. Barre Bliss' Cycle Sculpt classes combine cycling, sculpting, and cardio to promote weight loss and toning with the guidance of experience instructors.
