Barre & Soul Is Opening a Third Location
Barre & Soul, a barre studio with locations in Melrose and Lexington, is opening a third location in New Hampshire. The signature class—like most barre classes—is based on the Lotte Berk Method and combines ballet conditioning, interval cardio, Pilates, yoga, and mindfulness in order to strengthen the core, lengthen muscles, and center the mind.
Studio founder Andrea Isabelle Lucas has been teaching barre classes since 2006, when the method was barely on anyone’s radar. She’s also a certified yoga instructor who formerly led the mind-body fitness programs at Exhale Spa in Boston.
Lucas says that she’s excited to return to her New Hampshire roots. “I grew up in the Seacoast and so many people I’ve spoken with have lamented there are no studios here that focus on barre workouts or offer what [we] will,” Lucas says. “It is my mission to empower clients through Barre & Soul to overcome internal and external challenges and to live fit, fun and happy lives.”
