Barre


This class is taught by:

Nina Granatir

Studio Director:
Nina is impassioned by yoga and the ways it connects to life off of the mat. She began practicing in 1993. She was immediately in love with the practice of yoga as it began to transform life on physical and emotional levels. She has studied many styles over the years, learning from various traditions such as Anusara, Bikram/Ghosh/Sanchez lineage, Yin, and Vinyasa/Baptiste Method. She completed her teacher training with Bikram Yoga Head Quarters in 2005, in 2013 with Tony Sanchez, with Baptise Institute in 2015, and most recently with Hot Body Barre. 
 
After managing yoga studios in the Seattle/Bellevue region, as well as in Northern California, Nina knew she was ready to open up her own studio. In 2011 Be Yoga Burien was born! Nina says, "Teaching yoga is the true gift of my life; it gives me the continuous opportunity to be a student."

Lyndsie Couet

Lyndsie, Teacher,
Lyndsie is a yoga teacher, RYT 200. After first trying yoga in 2002, she practiced inconsistently and tried several types of yoga, but it was after several years in a stressful, sedentary job that she came back to her practice for physical health and fitness as well as stress relief. It became apparent that yoga would remain a necessary part in her life. Yoga has made such a difference in her health, happiness and overall satisfaction with life that she decided to share her passion for yoga with others by teaching.

Lyndsie's goals as a teacher are to impart joy and passion for yoga to others, for students to see yoga not just as a way to fitness, but as a way to relax the mind, de-stress, slow down and achieve greater focus. Her goal is to help others listen to their bodies and gain self-awareness, while encouraging a positive self-image, feelings of empowerment and self-care. To do this, she focuses the class on proper form and technique, prioritizing alignment and safety, and strings it all together with her unique delivery of enthusiasm, fun, and words of encouragement.

Lyndsie considers herself forever a student, attends training and workshops whenever able, and reads books and articles on yoga, anatomy, meditation, health and nutrition. Her goals for her students are to love practicing yoga as much as she does, get in and out of postures safely, feel awesome, become healthier and happier in their lives on and off the mat, and ultimately spread kindness to others.

Lesley Thompson

Lesley Thompson is excited to be a part of the Be Yoga Burien team! She is a Barre Instructor, dancer, dance educator, choreographer, and yoga teacher. Lesley grew up dancing and has danced professionally for many years. After moving to Seattle from Las Vegas, she took her first barre class and fell in love with the physicality and gracefulness of the movement. In early 2015 she attended barre teacher training and has been teaching barre ever since. She began teaching yoga a short time after.  Lesley's background in dance, yoga, and barre have built a foundation for a class that is physically demanding and draws inspiration from all forms of dance and music. Her classes are authentic and focus on bringing out your strength, confidence, and connection to self.

Ashleigh Blor

Ashleigh discovered the magic that is yoga in 2008; she has been a dedicated student both on and off her mat ever since. An avid traveler, her yoga practice has been one of the few things with the constant ability to rival the thrill of seeing and experiencing a new place. Yoga has provided her with tangible tools to live a life inspired by authenticity and growth and she is continually moved by its transformative powers. She received her 200 hour teaching certification in 2013, eager to share her passion and delight for yoga with those around her. Her classes seek to uplift, inspire and challenge students to honor and celebrate where they are each and every day. She truly believes that a dynamic flow, coupled with a little bit of sweat can remedy just about anything.

Kati Skeltis

Kati, Teacher,
Hi! My name is Kati, and I am so excited to be teaching and practicing with you. At Be Yoga Burien I fell in love with yoga during my first class. In my second class I knew one day I would become a yoga teacher. Over the years yoga has transformed my life. I love the combined physical and mental challenge of yoga and the serenity, relaxation, and healthy perspectives which come from a regular yoga practice. I completed the Breathe Hot Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Training in the spring of 2015. Through teaching yoga I hope to encourage students to challenge themselves with compassion, safely practice yoga in a sustainable, life-long manner, and reach their maximum potential on and off the mat.
Our Barre class is a 60 minute full body workout that combines pilates, yoga, strength conditioning and ballet-inspired moves to give you beautiful, sculpted, lean muscles. A truly unique yet challenging workout, Barre utilizes the ballet barre to perform low impact isometric movements that lifts your glutes, tones your thighs, abs, and arms, and burns fat in a short amount of time. This regimented routine will evenly sculpt and quickly transform the entire body, resulting in a long and lean muscle physique. Room is heated to about 90 degrees. This one-hour class is designed to strengthen your core, lengthen your muscles, center your mind and produce visible results. Each class is designed to build impressive total-body toning and flexibility while maintaining the utmost safety and accessibility for all students.
 
The room is slightly heated (around 90 degrees) and beginner friendly.  No dance background required.  Bring what you would for a yoga class, your mat/towel, water, and your light heart :)
