BDY Barre


This class is taught by:

Emily Smith

Emily is a student at Marshall University and is from Elizabeth, WV. She began taking classes at BDY in 2016 and has been in love with it ever since. Before taking classes at BDY, Emily was a dedicated runner and BDY opened her eyes to a whole new workout regimen. She enjoyed the atmosphere and people at the studio so much that she was inspired to take the BDY Barre Instructor Certification. Her goal as an instructor is to make sure her students leave smiling after a great workout!

Kai Blankenship

Kai grew up traveling the world training to be a professional ballerina. After multiple foot injuries, she stopped dancing, went on to graduate school and moved to LA and began working in the fitness industry.  This is where she fell in love with cycling and barre. Kai recently moved back home to Ashland from Lexington where she taught cycling, barre, & strength training. She is currently pursuing a Physical Therapy Assistant degree. She loves helping people become stronger and healthier so BDY is the perfect fit!

This workout is a uniquely fun, high-energy group fitness experience, which fuses exercise techniques from yoga, pilates, and ballet to tone your whole body without adding bulk. This class will utilize light weights, resistance bands, and small, controlled movements along with cardio intervals. Students may be barefoot or wear toe socks.
