Become a Barre Teacher
Brooklyn Barre is Master Pilates Teacher Ellie Herman's newest fitness program: A smart mix of functional exercises meant for all ages and fitness levels.
Certification modules are offered throughout the year. Inquire via the form below for info on the next module.
After 25 years’ teaching Pilates, Ellie has come up with what she thinks are the most important exercises to keep your body healthy, injury-free, and looking great. A favorite among Pilates teachers, Brooklyn Barre is a mix of functional exercises that combine Pilates Mat and Springboard sequences, squats, lunges, planks, and basic dance moves that build endurance and tone the body fast while protecting the knees and spine.
Ellie’s vision is to create a fitness regimen that can be done in a jail cell. Access to a fully-equipped Pilates studio is ideal, but with Brooklyn Barre, complete fitness can be achieved with just a space on the floor.
