Melissa Whaley, Owner and Instructor
Melissa opened The Barre Studio, Hamburg in April 2015 after studying barre for many years and training for certification in Rome, Italy in 2014. She loves building relationships with clients, now friends, in the studio. The studio was designed to be a beautiful place to treat yourself to a killer workout, shut that brain off for 45 minutes, and leave feeling recharged and rebalanced. Lengthening and leaning along the way doesn't hurt either.
