A Space For Everyone

The Barre started as a vision for a studio space that was comfortable, calming space where anyone no matter the age or fitness experience could come and have a great time and leave feeling rejuvenated. Founder Meg Ray worked hard with her supportive family and friends to bring this vision to life.

Fitness is often someone’s first step in the self discovery and healing process, even if they don’t realize it. Moving your body is therapeutic and one of the very few things that you can do for yourself that benefits no one but you. Leave the outside world at the door for an hour and come find yourself in the relaxing, clean and calming environment at The Barre.

Waylon Wade
Waylon Wade Yoga Instructor

Waylon attended his first yoga class in 2011. He first used yoga to pass the time because of a low snow year and he couldn’t go skiing. He soon discovered what an important role yoga played in his life.  With the combination of overcoming his childhood home burning down in a forest fire and attending a yoga festival in 2012, he knew he wanted to become a yoga instructor and share what he had found with yoga.

Waylon traveled to Mexico in December of 2012 to become a certified yoga instructor. Waylon likes his classes to be a mix of challenging the physical body while

connecting with the emotional and mental body. Waylon’s classes can be challenging, but with his sense of humor, he can make anyone feel welcome. Waylon believes that with a steady yoga practice we can learn to overcome obstacles in our life. When we overcome something we find challenging on our mat, we can take that same attitude out of the studio into our everyday lives. When we learn to use the breath to work through a challenging pose we can use that same breath to work through anything our daily lives present to us.

Sara and her husband moved here to Pocatello from Logan, Utah! Sara’s husband is doing the pharmacy program here at ISU and she works as an RN on the Cardiovascular floor at PMC. They have a little boy that keeps her on her toes.

In her spare time she loves being with family + friends, teaching HGH and barre, running (always looking for a race), biking, hiking, dancing, boating and baking. The hardest part about Sara leaving home was leaving behind the close friendships she made through being a fitness instructor at the studio she was at. When she came to Pocatello, The Barre jumped out and sure enough, she fell in love with The Barre. It felt like home. It’s made this transition so much easier knowing that she will have that same opportunity again to make those friendships and find that happiness through teaching and being around amazing people each day. Sara is so excited to get to know you all.
