"Our hope is that by bringing women home to their own bodies, they will come to trust themselves more, as well as their power to create change in their own lives, and the world"

Elisa Reinerio and Claudia Richli - Barre&Baby trainers

Pregnancy is a journey of change. In a Barre&Baby space, we are dedicated to embody these changes and express them.

The Barre&Baby prenatal teacher training covers the full journey from conception, pregnancy, birth to the preparation for the first days after birth.

B&B classes aim to move through the full experience of pregnancy, from growing a baby inside, to giving birth to this baby and being able to connect with him or her from womb to the early days after birth.
