A letter from the founders

exhale teamas founders of exhale and co-creators of the core fusion program, elisabeth halfpapp and i have been┬áteaching barre for over 30 years and enjoy seeing the barre industry explode with popularity over┬áthe last few years. our hearts couldn’t be fuller with the amount of people who are now actually engaging in barre fitnes around the world! as barre fitness becomes more popular, one cause for concern was to do our best to make sure that barre classes were taught with safety and effectiveness in mind. as a result, we began to offer our barre teacher training to teachers and small businesses beyond our world at exhale a few short years ago. carolina barre + core was the first barre studio, outside the walls of our own exhale studios, to train in our technique. we worked with the owner amity whalen and her group of teachers before she opened her studio. we trained her group in our barre, cardio and sport class formats and to this day, she and her teachers uphold our standards and produce quality classes on a consistent basis. we are so proud to support carolina barre + core with all of their teacher trainings and help them produce teachers that are fun, musical, energetic, positive, warm and welcoming. they provide a results producing experience with each class that they teach. keep up the great work, carolina barre + core team!!
