Bar Method with Kylie
Really liked this teacher!
Bar Method with Miwa
the adjustments were hands on and really personal. overall a great workout
Bar Method with Jennifer
Good workout and challenging but weird instruction. Calls out people for their form and corrects them on the microphone but it was not tactful by any means nor encouraging.
Bar Method with Grace
I loved the energy of the class.
Bar Method with Allison
Instructor had great energy and was constructive with her adjustments. As a first timer I needed a lot of help but she doesn't make you feel bad about it
Bar Method with Gina
Bar Method with Ana
She was great and made a lot of adjustments. The showers on the other hand are not clean and need a lot of attention.
Bar Method with Claire
The whole class I kept saying “I need to sign up again for next week.” The instructor was amazing and it was my first class so she was so helpful and welcoming!
Bar Method with Kylie
Very technical and the instructors will make sure you’re in proper form (which I loved), but didn’t feel the burn as I have for other barre classes
Bar Method with Rebecca
great instruction!

About this studio

The Bar Method® is a one-hour, non-impact total body workout. It starts with a warm-up, free-weight exercises and push-ups and then moves on to intense, isometric leg work at the bar, followed by abdominal work at the bar and on mats. Every exercise includes active stretching to elongate the targeted muscles. The Bar Method is a challenge to both your cardiovascular system and your muscle strength, delivering a high level of overall fitness. 415 956 0446

The Bar Method classes

How to prepare

Preparation for your first class is easy, all you need is a pair of socks that cover the entire foot (we recommend grippy socks), exercise pants that fall to the knee or below, and tops that cover midriff. Read more here: If this is your first class, it may feel strange, unique, and exhilarating. This is totally normal! Like anything new, it can take a few classes to really hit your stride. Once you do, we know you are going to love the changes you feel in your body, and the new friends you’ll make.

How to get there

Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get you properly set up and introduce you to your instructor! New students who arrive after class has commenced will not be able to take class. We are located on the Lobby Level (second floor) of 3 Embarcadero Center. Take the escalators by Kara's Cupcakes up. Once at the top, go left and you will see our location on the right, just past Vanity Nails.
