What is barre?
Inspired by ballet and dance traditions, you'll use small, controlled movements to create long and lean muscles in this full body workout.
Meet YYOGA floor barre and yoga teacher, Mandi Von Alkier!
Mandi has a passion for movement and a strong background in all things fitness growing up as a dancer. Mandi started assisting classes from a very young age and started teaching at the age of 14. She has taught dance to competitive and non-competitive dancers, skaters, gymnasts, school children, and adults.
Mandi discovered and immersed herself in yoga 7 years ago to help heal injuries after years of dance. After completing her degree in Psychology, Mandi backpacked around the world for 5 years visiting over 30 countries and counting before moving to Vancouver to complete her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training from the Vancouver School of Yoga. Mandi currently teaches 15+ classes a week around the city as a freelance Yoga and Barre instructor. Her previous experience as a dancer and dance teacher have given her a deep understanding of the body and alignment, which she weaves into her teachings with humour and positive vibes.
We asked Mandi:
What can students expect from your class?
Breath work, creative sequencing, and challenging flows with good music and a sense of humour.
