Camaraderie vs. Competition

What would it be like to find connection with other women who support, encourage & lift you?

Our studio was built on this premise and when our founder Alyssa experienced her first BUTI yoga class with Bizzie Gold the creator of BUTI yoga, she knew instinctively that her clients at Re-Barre would love it.

Re-Barre Studio has been offering BUTI yoga classes for over a year now & students simply love it.

Here’s what they are saying …

BUTI class is the ultimate GIVE NO F*CKS ZONE. Didn’t put on makeup? No f*ck given. Too many desserts this week? No f*ck given. Can’t do all the moves? No f*ck given. Feeling self-conscious? Definitely ZERO f*cks for that. You do you. The ONLY thing you give in Buti is giving-in to the energy of the music and the tribe of beautiful, non-f*ck-giving women moving and sweating and becoming stronger together. Pure love.” – Julie L.

Find your tribe- love them hard. Get a month of unlimited classes including BUTI yoga for $125.00

Re-Barre Roll Call: Frances Blickman

FrancesB

After moving from the Big Apple to what I thought would be the Wild West with Doc Holliday, (ok I kid, but it’s still the desert!) I found myself in need for a fitness routine, one I would stick with for real this time! Like most, I started and stopped a few things in the past; spin classes, workout videos, and the like. I dropped into Re-Barre not knowing what to expect, took my first class with Faith, and never looked back. Faith’s energy was contagious, the environment was supportive, and boy did I feel my workout the next day! It’s the only fitness routine I have consistently followed for well over a year since my earlier years of ballet and dance… earlier like when LA Gear was cool and J.T. was just another member of N’SYNC. Fast-forward a few more years and moves around the country and not only was I in need for a fitness routine, I was in need of a community. Re-Barre had just that, women supporting other women. It wasn’t after long I knew I wanted to be a part of the ReBarre family in a different capacity and started the instructor certification program. This summer I begin my journey as an instructor in hopes to share this practice with others.

Brunch Hashbrown Substitute

cauliflower cups

A perfect brunch option. Ditch the extra white starchy carbs with hash browns and substitute for cauliflower hash browns. YUM!

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, stalk and leaves removed, cut into florets
  • 1 extra large egg, whisked
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese (or Mozzarella)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½-1 teaspoon salt (to your tastes)
  • Pepper (optional – to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 teaspoon onion powder)
  • 12 small-medium sized eggs

Process

  1. Preheat oven to 350F Lightly spray a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking oil spray (or grease with butter), wipe over excess with a paper towel and set aside.
  2. Pulse the cauliflower in two batches for about 30-50 seconds until a fine ‘rice’ is formed. It’s ok if there are a few bigger pieces in there. (Be careful not to over process or the cauliflower will form a raw puree.)
  3. Measure out 3 cups (480g or 17oz in weight) of the cauliflower rice into a microwave safe bowl and heat for about 8 minutes or until soft. Alternatively, lightly steam over a pot of boiling water or in a vegetable steamer until soft. Remove and allow to cool for a good 5 minutes before handling.
  4. Using paper towels, an old tea towel or a cheesecloth, squeeze out as much liquid as you can until hardly any liquid can be squeezed out. (It’s easier to wrap the cauliflower in the towel (or cloth) and squeeze it into a ball over the sink. Less mess)
  5. Transfer back into your bowl (make sure there’s no liquid in it), and add the whisked egg, cheeses, salt and garlic powder. Divide the mixture into each muffin hole and firmly press them with your fingertips to create a ‘nest’ or cup.
  6. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted, the cups are golden and the edges are browned. Remove from the oven; break the eggs into each cup; season with salt and pepper; return to the oven and bake for a further 10-15 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your liking.
  7. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before handling them, or they may fall apart. Lightly slide a knife around the sides of each cup. Using a fork, gently lift one side first to make sure they’re not sticking to the bottom, and lift out of the pan.
  8. Garnish with red chilli flakes and parsley (optional) or leave as is.

Bootylicious

Oh my gosh Becky look at her butt! 

Starting a new workout routine can be intimidating! I think every woman hears this fictitious voice in her head when she walks into a new exercise class. We may not be our fittest or feel our absolute best, and let’s face it active wear is not the baggy track suits of the 90’s {insert visual of your favorite neon pink tracksuit, you know you owned one}, but guess what? You don’t need to look like a fitness model or wear the latest apparel to make exercise part of a healthy lifestyle change.

Re-Barre is a studio with a safe and supportive environment where you can confidently show up and do your best while sharing the fitness journey with many other women who are empowering each other loving themselves NOW – whether post baby, post injury, or just post life! So come tuck and shake with us!

For the Love of Barre and of Myself

My barre story starts in 2005, when I was trying to rebuild my life after many significant changes ~ a pivotal break up, a scary illness, the loss of all of my belongings and being pulled away from my life in Arizona for a few years.

Once I was able to move back to Scottsdale, it didn’t take long for me to get fed up with feeling unhealthy.  I was incredibly out of shape, also very overweight for my frame, tipping the scales at over 220lbs and barely squeezing my 5’5 self into my clothes.  I didn’t have much respect or appreciation for my body at that time, so I thought I’d try learning to love it while also giving it more of the care it needed.

I found a trainer – he thought he’d never see me again after our initial meeting, I certainly didn’t match the elite athletes he was used to hanging with at the gym.  But something in me knew it was time to do better, be better.  After 18 months of hard work, I realized that I was more of an athlete than I’d ever known – I crushed every challenge he threw my way and felt pretty darn good!  I met my fitness goals, was feeling great about my body and inspired to take on more new experiences!

It was then that I was asked if I would consider learning to teach a new workout method (barre) that was coming to AZ.  Me, a fitness trainer?  What?!  I watched 3 strong, powerful, super fit yoga instructors shake and quiver at their first set of thigh and seat work – if these women could barely keep going, how would I be able to do it, let alone teach it?  But that inner athlete in me wouldn’t turn down the chance and I said yes.

Training was tough – so much to learn, so many moves to understand, so much about the body to appreciate!  It wasn’t until I taught my first class that I realized that I had finally found my WHY, my passion for helping others, coaching them through challenges and towards wellness goals.  It brought tears to my eyes to feel that feeling, to connect with my purpose – I had waited 35 years for that feeling!

I started teaching in 2007, first one or two classes a week, then 5 or 6.  While life has thrown me lots of curves and changes since then, Alyssa has always supported my passion for you, the clients, and for all that barre means to me.  Every class, every single one, lifts my spirits, fills my heart and reminds me that life is about giving, connecting and making each other feel good.

So thank you for showing up, for working as hard as you do and for letting me life my passion each hour that we get to spend together!

Re-Barre Roll Call :: Alyssa Spencer

I was inspired by a conversation with a dear friend struggling with the expectations we as women place on ourselves- imagined, or in some cases the ‘helpful suggestions’ from family, or friends- to ‘have it all’. All being the societal norm- family, marriage, partner, white picket fence, 2.5 kids, a spectacular career.

The constant messaging women face of not being enough.

Enough being the grand finish line.

Only the grand finish line, is utterly and completely unattainable.

We kid ourselves into believing when we achieve X we will be happy, when we reach X number on a scale we will be happy or when we have X number of dollars in our bank accounts THEN we will truly be complete.

I saw so much of myself in this beautiful young woman likely 15 years my junior. I wanted to reach over, dry her tears and pray for her to see that she has complete power to choose whether she wants to spend more time running, pacing and jumping on the treadmill of ‘never enough’ or perhaps embracing what is.

With age and life experience comes wisdom. I reflected on how many years I too had spent in anguish allowing other people to impose their belief systems on me in an attempt to validate their own beliefs and needs. It got me thinking how incredibly damaging this can be. How limiting to believe happiness should only come in the form of what we may have been indoctrinated with rather than by finding happiness in simply embracing the present moment.

When we are fully present we connect on a deeper more meaningful level. This differs not whether you are alone and finding contentment in having a picnic of one in a memorial garden connecting to nature and breathing (which I did this evening) or sharing an evening filled with deep belly laughs surrounded by your tribe (which I did the night before). When we embrace what is in all its beauty-including the beauty in life’s imperfections, when we ourselves are able to show the world our imperfections without fear of judgement and just be…that is when we find peace.

People who matter will still love you if you strip away the facade of perfection.

Being authentic empowers us.

It helps us to connect to our breath, connects us with likeminded people and encourages us to listen to what we know intuitively on a deep soul level. By serving and sharing ourselves on this level with others we find connection to source.

My hope is to help others find connection through breath, movement and the community of Re-Barre Studio.
