Carolyn


My love for Barre stems from my years of dance in NYC where I danced professionally with Frank Hatchett, Savion Glover, the Fly Girls of In Living Color. My passion for dance began when I was three years old and has never faded. I have been trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and theatre and have choreographed and danced for music groups such as Heavy D and The Boyz. My career has been reignited over the past couple of years where I have been teaching Barre classes, along with Indoor Cycling and Personal Training. When I’m not teaching fitness classes, I’m working one on one with my personal training clients on getting fit, healthy and balanced at MY STUDIO in Chapel Hill which I own and operate.

I also hold a degree in Interior Design and have worked independently for 10 years. My philosophy is "commit, let loose and enjoy the music. Everything else will fall in place and you will discover your inner ballerina."

Carolyn instructs the following:
  • Cardio Barre
  • This barre class will work you in big and small movements to get the heart rate pumping. Challenge your strength, endurance and balance to sculpt and tone. All levels welcome to this fast paced class. Alignment and a good awareness of movement is helpful, but not required.
     
    This class offers choreography with quick coordinated movements so a good foundation of barre, Pilates, and dance are very helpful.

  • Express RIDE
  • This 50 minute class gets you in and out in a flash. You will work your body with a series of sprints, hills, intervals and jumps all set to motivating music. This class will provide a challenging workout for all levels. Heart rate monitors are recommended.

  • Bike To Barre Express
  • Reshape your entire body in 60 minute class. The perfect blend of cardio along with muscle building, core toning and body slimming exercises mixed with cardio and orthopedic stretching. This unique total-body workout targets the arms, thighs, seat and core. Based on the principles of the Lotte Berk Method and Callenetics you get the fat-burning benefits of interval training by isolating the muscles with precise isometric movements followed by orthopedic stretching to sculpt long, lean muscles. Using your own body weight as resistance you will sculpt your body to perfection with this combination of cardio and strength training. Long lean legs, a lifted seat, a tighter core, increased flexibility and strength are just a few of the benefits.


  • RIDE ONLY
  • This is great for those who want to just take the RIDE portion of Hybrid Classes. Want to take both but are on the WL? You can double book this time.

  • Barre Amped
  • This amped up barre class continues to build during the entire hour. Experience muscle sculpting, posture tuning and hi-fi movements and combos that will get your metabolism revved up without having to lace up your trainers and hit the pavement! Progression of movements with attention to posture and breath helps keep you tuned in and working at your level with options to add on and back off where your body needs it.
     

  • Bike to Barre Split
  • The cycle-barre combo class Bike to Barre will get your heart pumping to burn fat and gain endurance. You will start with a cardio intense 35 minute RIDE, then you’ll slide off the saddle and head to the barre room for strengthening and lengthening, defining muscle with every class. Prepare to sweat, we will be maximizing our time on the bike and in the barre room!
