Barre


This class is taught by:

Amy Ackerman

To no surprise, the first class Amy took with FlyDog was a barre class back in January of 2017. From there, Amy started taking a variety of classes and soon realized that this was a community she wanted to be more a part of. She jumped at the idea of attending FlyDog Yoga’s Barre Teacher Training and teaching at FlyDog. Amy looks forward to providing fun and upbeat classes that encourage any and all people to try barre, take barre or become a barre regular!

Jennifer Kennedy

Upon moving to Charlottesville in 2013 Jenn took Eliza's class by accident and instantly knew her practice would transform.
She found her 'home' with Flydog and completed 200-hr YTT with Eliza Whiteman.  Jennifer also has her FDY Barre Certification as well as Aerial Level 1 & 2 Certifications from Aircat Aerial Arts.
Jennifer is the Lead Aerial Teacher at FlyDog Yoga. Her passion for teaching Aerial stems from 'stepping outside of your comfort zone'- she was hooked first flip!
Every class is taught with the intention of creating a playful yet informative experience, she likes to focus on building strength, body-breath awareness, and proper technique. She lives for the look on a students face when they achieve a skill - Priceless!

Caroline Oldfield

Caroline started practicing yoga and barre about four years ago in an effort to bring more reflection and variety to her exercise routine, and has loved finding new challenges in both ever since. She was so delighted to discover FlyDog when she joined the Charlottesville community last year, she decided to approach another level of practice and complete her barre teacher training through the studio. Caroline is enthusiastic about engaging her classes in a challenging variety of sequences. Expect a playful, fresh approach and fun music to shake to!

Meredith Mcclellan

Meredith originally found FlyDog Yoga in order to heal from her many injuries from parenting, tennis and running.
Meredith grew up in Atlanta, GA and was a competitive gymnast in her youth. She and her husband moved to Charlottesville in 2004. After the birth of her three children, Meredith found herself trying to recover from complications due to her c-sections and trying to find her fitness again. She began running marathons and thus continued her long past full of injuries due to improper alignment, and overuse. Then she found FlyDog!
Meredith should not work for a yoga studio. She can only get within 3 feet of touching her toes (on a good day). However, in her barre classes, her flexibility (or lack thereof) is not on display. Be prepared to learn news ways to work your muscles, shake and hear some really bad jokes in her fun, heart-pumping classes.
Meredith went through Barre training in 2016 and is currently working on her STOTT Pilates reformer and matwork certifications. She is a full time real estate agent with Wiley Real Estate. When she is not with her kids or at work, you will find her on a tennis court or struggling to make it through a power yoga class!
Expect to sweat and expect to shake! FlyDog barre classes incorporate yoga, Pilates, and ballet influenced movements and exercises to strengthen and tone, creating long, lean muscles. A barre practice is a great complement to an existing yoga practice, as it helps build strength, focus, and confidence! Come prepared to work and have fun!
