Nikki-Dee as barre fitness instructor: ‘Feel the Burn’

MECHANISCVILLE, Va. -- It's time to plié! Nikki-Dee is teaching classes at Pulse Barre Studio.

In this week's Nikki-Dee, Can You Be Me, she learned all about what it takes to be a barre fitness instructor.

Barre combines ballet, Pilates, and yoga for a challenging yet low-impact workout, appropriate for different ages and exercise levels.

Nikki-Dee checked clients in at the front desk, helped instruct a class, and even cleaned up at the end by wiping the mirrors.

Kelly Connors, the owner of Pulse, opened the doors to this local studio in June of 2015. She and her barre instructors April Wells and Susan Parikh, and her yoga instructor Amy Yarbrough, make up the small Pulse team. They provide a comfortable and supportive environment for clients to exercise.

Pulse Barre Studio is located in Mechanicsville off of 301 in the Rutland Commons Shopping Center.
