About Our Studio.
The Bar Method St. Augustine is the first barre studio to open in the St. Augustine, Florida area and is located at 1000 S Ponce De Leon Blvd, Suite 7, just minutes away from the city’s historic downtown and close to the beaches. Gayle Gallagher will open the studio with the help of her daughter, Kaitlin, in early 2015. They aim to make every client that walks through the doors feel welcomed, informed, and valued. They look forward to growing their strong and supportive Bar Method community in the years to come.
Owner, Gayle, was a physical therapist in Massachusetts for 25 years before moving to Florida with her family. After feeling unsatisfied with her current workout routine and a back injury, it was time to find a new way to workout. Her daughters convinced her to try a bar workout and the rest was history! After exploring different techniques, Gayle discovered the Bar Method. She was impressed with not only the safety and effectiveness of the specific exercises, but also the high level of instruction. With her therapy background and Kaitlin’s strong classical ballet background, she knew opening this studio in their community was a perfect fit for them both and a way to share their passion and skill with others.
The St. Augustine studio has a spa-like feel, but still remains comfortable, with beautiful crystal chandeliers and iridescent tile walls. There is one large studio with an abundance of natural light. It also has a locker room with individual lockers and bar-top counters with an assortment of complimentary products to freshen up after class. Child supervision is provided in the kid’s room during certain class times.
