CrowBarre offers a practice and a certification training that teachers state-of-the-art exercise movement techniques of a custom mix of yoga, barre, and Pilates, with intentional mindful tools that will shape your day-to-day away from the barre!
This program is influenced by the Lotte Berk Method, the original British Barre, and where Julianna has done extensive training with Esther Fairfax, the 85 year old daughter of Lotte Berk, in Hungerford, England-being the 15th person worldwide to have the opportunity to study and be certified by the true original barre source.
What also sets CrowBarre apart from other barre training and certification brands is its mindfulness and movement method—its founder’s belief in the importance of both physical and mental health.
Trainees will not only learn the proper methodology behind the practice created by Lotte Berk, but also be educated on the importance of breath and awareness during their students’ and their own barre practice.
It is that interconnectedness of body and mind that inspired yoga and barre instructor Julianna Record to offer barre training and certification.
A yogi for almost two decades, after participating in a number of barre trainings and certifications, Record has found that most lacked an emphasis on attention and intention during practice. From practicing and teaching yoga, she knows that the connection between body and mind leads to a deeper and more fulfilling practice that is timed to the students inner rhythm.
At CrowBarre, trainees will learn to both sculpt bodies and open hearts—something their students will surely appreciate in today’s constantly moving and often over stimulating world.
As with many new methods of movement, some individuals are resistant to the crow, particularly the mystery of its presence. CrowBarre trainees are encouraged to embrace any personal resistance—physical, mental, energetic, etc.,—to allow for transformation.
The crow is a spirit animal, a sign of luck, and represents the power of transformation. Crows are also symbolized as flexible, intelligent, fearless, and adaptable. They represent a deep connection to the magic within and around us.
About the founder
Julianna Record truly believes that anything challenging along our journey is for our transformation and awakening. Through mind, body, and heart connection, we can tune into that inner knowing, while lightening up, and trying to not take ourselves and life too seriously.
Although she started taking movement and expression classes at the age of 3, it was after experiencing a sudden traumatic illness at 9 that Julianna found healing and comfort through meditation and breathing techniques. From an early age, she knew that there was something greater, deeper than herself, that sparked the magic, the life force in all of us, and that, to truly soar, we need to keep that connection alive and well, day in and day out, through a balance of mindfulness and movement.
Julianna has been practicing yoga and Pilates for 20 years and teaching for almost 15. She is the owner of the Wachusett Wellness Center, located in the heart of Massachusetts.
From a technical and educator perspective, Julianna has worked in various successful start-up companies as a global software and curriculum training manager. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in technical communications and international business, with certifications in adult learning theories and technical curriculum design. She has had the privilege of teaching, studying, and training domestically and internationally, learning about and creating programs for adult learners of all ages, abilities, and nationalities.
Her first career taught her that longer, more in-depth, and expensive training isn’t always the most beneficial or worthwhile, financially or constructively, nor healthy on the mind, body, and spirit. She has trialed and errored many adult programs, and has found that connection is key, less is often more, and that programs must be conducted, taught, and expressed with a present, grateful heart-to-heart presence.
She has passionately applied her years of movement and technical experience to CrowBarre, providing detailed documentation, curriculum, specific verbiage techniques, and self-study to make sure that each trainee and their students can soar to their unique level of height and life force, all while challenging and inviting them to embrace their next level. She is excited, humbled, and grateful to offer and share this experience.
CrowBarre’s focus is mindful presence and awareness, which will allow successful trainees to help their students achieve ultimate physical, mental, and spiritual enhancement.
We offer a 45-, 60-, and 75-minute class training curriculum that is enjoyable and effective, and also provides our promise of a transformative “work-in,”in addition to the workout.
