Located in Sorrento Valley, BARRE + bay wreath is an Insta-worthy, minimalist studio that’s raising the barre for fitness and community. And while you can definitely expect challenging, ballet-inspired, total-body toning workouts, the modern wellness brand is so much more than that.
BARRE + bay wreath is also connected to a bohemian floral studio, coffee shop, and charming retail boutique, making it the ideal spot to hang out with your barre besties after class or to stop in on a lazy Saturday for a latte and a fresh flower arrangement.
If you're swinging by for a workout, you're in for a real treat. The classes at this boutique space feature exercises studied and approved by physical therapists and are all about small movements and big results. Think isometric movements that fatigue, elongate, and stretch muscles to build strength and flexibility. That might sound easy, but trust us — it gets intense, fast.
Don't worry, though, they offer a range of classes for all levels, so whether you’ve stepped up to the barre more times than you can count or you’re a complete tuck and pulse newbie, you'll find something for you. Plus, between their quick, 45-minute express workouts and their extended, 75-minute sessions, you’ll be able to get into the studio no matter what your schedule looks like.
Get ROOTED with a classic technique breakdown complete with tried-and-true barre moves. Or, slow things down and sign up for their RESTORE class, a barre-based series that includes restorative stretching exercises meant to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. But if you’re ready to kick things up a notch, you can’t go wrong with RISE, a challenging, cardio-based mashup that’ll push you to your edge. Fitt Tip: grip socks are required, but if you don’t own a pair, the studio has you covered.
While we can’t get enough of BARRE + bay wreath's full-body barre classes, it’s hard not to get distracted by the dreamy marketplace at the front of the studio. A picturesque space filled with flowers, retail items, stationery sets, and some seriously good coffee, we don’t blame you if you find an excuse to stay all day.
So, order a cold brew and catch up with friends, channel your creativity in one of their bouquet making workshops, or snag a pre-made seasonal bunch on your way out the door. One thing's for sure — whether you’re heading over for a solid sweat or a killer cappuccino, you’re in for an afternoon of fun and good vibes.
Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.
This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.
Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.
If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help page—where they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.
Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.
This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
