Meet our Owner
Hi, I'm Ashley! And I am so excited that you are interested in joining us at Neighborhood Barre Memphis! I first fell in love with barre when I took a Neighborhood Barre Class in Knoxville as a student at UT. I was hooked from the very first class and quickly became a regular attendee. Not only did barre completely change my body, but it also completely changed the way I thought about working out. No longer was working out a tedious and dreadful chore, but it was a fun and quick hour that left me wanting to come back again and again.
I moved to Memphis in 2012 and ever since I arrived, it has been my dream to bring Neighborhood Barre to this wonderful community. I am so excited to have finally brought that dream to fruition!
Neighborhood Barre prides itself on creating a warm, friendly, and encouraging environment that cares about every individual that enters our studio. Come and experience the NB difference. I can't wait to meet you!!
