Jasmine

Founder & Creator of Barre Lab

Read More

Jasmine is the co-founder and creator of Barre Lab. Jasmine started her journey as a yoga practitioner and walked into her first barre class a little too confident. She fell in love with the challenge that the barre move presented and later discovered how complementary barre is to her regular yoga practice. Soon she found herself in the barre room almost daily and being addicted to the barre burn.

She took her first Total Barre training in 2017 and then a BarreAmped training in 2018. She was hungry for more knowledge and went on to train with Barrebody in 2019. Later in 2020, she completed her pre and post natal certification with Barre Intensity and Barrebody. Jasmine is also a certified yoga and Pilates instructor.

Jasmine is not only big on alignment, she is a self-professed anatomy nerd! She believes every movement begins with intention and should be done effectively by understanding how the body moves. As she always says “it burns better when you know why and where you are working”.

With years of experience running one of the most relevant boutique fitness brands in Singapore. Jasmine is big on community and brand building. She is go-to person for all things barre and business!

Leandra

Lead Trainer of Barre Lab

Read More

Leandra is the Lead Trainer and Teacher Mentor in Barre Lab. Many of the earlier Barre fitness classes in Singapore were ballet and dance-focused, leaving Leandra – someone who had no formal dance background but thoroughly enjoys groovy tunes and movement – intimidated and almost reluctant to try a class. Fortunately, she did. One of her first Barre teachers was a Yoga and Pilates instructor, and the experience opened her eyes to the endless possibilities that Barre fitness could provide to the larger community.

In 2017, Leandra completed her first Total Barre training. She continued to explore various styles of Barre and completed more certifications with Barre Intensity and Barre Eclipse between 2019 to 2022. As Leandra taught more public classes with Barre Lab, she met more and more students who appreciated and thrived in her accessible and empowering classes. She went on to complete courses in trauma-sensitive language, inclusive language techniques and functional anatomy – all with the aim of creating effective and functional workouts that were truly accessible for all.

Leandra wants to rebel against the norms of the fitness industry – she does not teach dogmatic one-size-fits-all alignment approaches, she vehemently protests diet culture, and she never uses body-shaming language. She is glad to have found a home in Barre Lab and will continue to grow the Barre community with love.

Hear from our graduates.

What did you like most of the training? - My favourite part of the programme was the in-depth discussion of anatomy and linking it to barre classes. Plus, I also loved the camaraderie and friendships formed through Barre Lab Academy! I work as a Business Insight Analyst during the day, and decided to teach because I enjoyed the interactions she gets to have with the students. I feel a strong sense of achievement and fulfillment after each class, especially since I get to see them progress as they get stronger after each class!

What did you gain out of the training? - The practice teach sessions equipped me with the additional hands-on practice needed for me to find my own style, as well as continually improve on my ability to provide the ideal cues. The class observations were also tremendously helpful as they provided an opportunity to learn from the other instructors.

Who will you recommend this training to? - Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will! If you are passionate about barre and have thoughts about teaching barre, you should most definitely sign up! Upon completion of the programme, try to start teaching as soon as possible 😊 This way, you can ensure that you can apply all the knowledge you have gained immediately!

Chermain Ang Training Period: Jan 2022

What did you like most about the training? - Great instructors who are approachable and generous in sharing their knowledge 😍😍 Well-structured course! The material covered sufficient details such that we understood the fundamentals of barre and planning/ teaching an effective workout yet wasn't too overwhelming. The course is very manageable in terms of time commitment as well!

What did you gain out of the training? - A deeper appreciation for barre and the hard work that goes into planning and teaching a class! I definitely also got stronger and more confident through the practice sessions.

Who will you recommend this training to? - Anyone who wants to take their practice to another level! If you've ever even wondered what it'd be like leading a class, the training is for you 😊

Chia Pui San Training period: January 2022

What did you like most of the training? - I was given lots of opportunities to practice teach and eventually teach at Lab.

What did you gain out of the training? - I learnt how to communicate effectively and concisely so that the students can get the cues quickly and have a good workout.

What did you like most of the training? - I loved that through the training, I understood and loved my body more.

What did you gain out of the training? - This is a very systematic programme that helps students understand how the human body functions, what exercises will work which muscles and it also covers how to give instructions, alignment cues and motivate the students.
