After the Storm: The "Irma" Effect

We survived. Trees downed, minor damage to homes, some flooding and of course, power outages. The Studio is STILL without power, entering our second week. It's hard to complain too much because so many of you are without power in your homes. FPL is not giving us answers.

We've made some contingency plans to hold classes in other locales because we all sorely need stress relief and the camaraderie of fellow barre tenders. We are returning to BodyByBarre's birthplace -- Venice Fitness -- for Sunday's 9:30a & 10:45a. Venice Fitness is at 2123 Tamiami Trl S, in the Galleria Plaza next to Frank Theatre and Linkster's bar. Long-time barre tenders remember VF as the first home of The Studio.  We held class at Venice Fitness Saturday and it was great to see so many of you! Thanks Dayna Purcell for arranging Gran Paradiso for Friday's class.

We are working on a day-to-day schedule until the power returns. As always, Mindbody is the place to check the schedule. And please sign up ASAP for classes. I'm lugging equipment from The Studio for classes, so it's helpful to have an accurate head count. If you have questions, please call me at 941-786-5955.

Because the storm so closely followed our Labor Day closure for painting, rearranging and sprucing up the Studio, I am going to credit monthly barre pass holders with a week in October. If you are on auto-pay, I will extend the date a week. If you purchased a one-month pass, I will credit your account with another unlimited week.

GREAT NEWS: Beginning Oct. 1, we are expanding our schedule so that we have evening classes M-F and more weekend classes. The Studio now has two "studios" -- one for Pilates reformer and one for barre and a few Pilates mat classes. We think you're going to love our new look and our new offerings!
