Julie Gerenrot, South Loop Location

Julie Gerenrot has an MA in Economics from Northwestern and spent the last 9 years working in finance while pursuing professional dance. Her Bar Method journey started in 2009. The classes became her lunchtime hour of escape, allowing her to tap into her strength and grace during the workday. She immediately fell in love with its technique, its relentless focus on form, its power to heal and transform the body and the dedicated community it fosters. She was empowered to became an instructor in 2013 and open her own studio in 2017 to share this life changing workout with the South Loop.

Emily Youkers, Gold Coast Location

Emily spent over 20 years working in technology but it was her love of dance that brought her to barre fitness. After trying several studios and not getting the results she desired, a co-worker recommended trying The Bar Method. She was immediately hooked! The technique, focus on form and exceptional instructors reminded her of her younger days in dance. In 2017 she left the corporate world and became an instructor and in 2018 she purchased the Gold Coast studio. She is excited to revitalize the dedicated Bar Method Gold Coast community and bring the power of this transformational workout to new clients
