Next Barre Teacher Training Begins Spring 2020

The Green Bird Fitness Instructor 1-Day Teacher Training Program is a 9-hour intensive program that prepares instructors to teach high quality, fun, and safe barre classes for all levels of fitness.

Upon completion of the Green Bird Fitness Instructor Training Program trainees will be expected to demonstrate proficiency in the following:

  • Create dynamic and interesting playlists
  • Lead a barre class with a variety of cues, anatomical, motivational, and directional
  • Ensure clients' safety throughout a barre class

Trainees that would like to take that next step to become a Green Bird Barre Instructor will be required to teach at least 2 Community Classes as a final audition.

The next Green Bird Barre Instructor Training Program will take place November 16, 9am-6pm!

Our 9hr Barre Instructor Training Tuition of $125 includes 2 complimentary classes, one-on-one mentorship sessions, and a small class size to ensure that our trainees are supported throughout and ready to teach a high quality barre class.
