Bar Effect class - Level 2


This class is taught by:

Lindsey Springer

Lindsey began doing Mat Pilates as a regular way to break up her 9-5 work day in 2007. Noticing a change in her energy level and body within a matter of weeks, she was forever hooked on Pilates from that point on. She started teaching in 2008 and soon left the corporate world altogether to pursue a challenging career in fitness instruction, including Barre, Pilates Equipment and Mat Pilates.
 
Trained through Balanced Bodies, she learned that Pilates is for every body type. She safely challenges all her clients' to meet their goals and increase their flexibility, strength and balance. Her passion for Pilates inspired her to further her education and returned to college to study kinesiology, the study of body mechanics. She dreams of one day traveling the world to share her knowledge of Pilates and kinesiology, and to train other aspiring Pilates instructors.

Abby Hall

When Abby attended her first Pilates class after graduating college and moving to Indianapolis it was love at first sight! A perfect change of pace from her usual gym and running routine, after a few classes she was hooked. She loved how she felt after each and every class, and the noticeable changes in muscle definition and tone were not bad either! While gearing up for her wedding and starting a new job, a co-worker introduced her to Invoke Studio, and Abby’s heart was stolen once more by their Bar Effect™ classes. Pushing her body at each class felt great, but the evident increase in strength and endurance left her wanting more. Wishing to inspire this enthusiasm of Pilates and Bar Effect™ into others, Abby jumped at the idea of becoming a teacher! Learning more with each class and through personal practice, she loves up-beat, high energy classes that will really push your body and make you feel the burn! Abby recently trained with Balanced Body and is also a Registered Dietitian. She truly believes in the phrase “everything in moderation…except for planks, which you can never do enough!”

Lindsey Turner

Lindsey is a former professional ballet dancer. Her deep appreciation for the benefits of combining Pilates with other physical practices is a crucial component of her approach to teaching. She took her first Pilates reformer session while studying ballet at the School of American Ballet in New York City. Lindsey spent the next 10 years traveling the world as a professional ballet dancer. She started as a student at Invoke four years ago, and became a Peak Pilates instructor in 2011.

Bailey Croke

Developing a passion for ballet at a young age, movement has always been a fundamental part of Bailey's life. She spent many years studying different forms of dance and participating in intensives, workshops, performances and competitions to further her training. After graduating from Indiana University and entering the working world, Bailey quickly fell in love pilates, yoga, and barre classes to keep up the activity and discipline that she had with dance. In 2013, she took a step back into the dance world and discovered a surprising new passion in teaching. Wanting to explore that further, Bailey decided to bring her love for pilates and teaching together and completed the Peak Pilates Certification in June 2015. As an enthusiastic Pilates instructor, Bailey loves to teach a challenging and revitalizing class to help students challenge their core, balance, flexibility and strength to improve overall movement quality, mind/body connection and physical vitality.

She enjoys sharing her love of the ever-evolving practice with her students in the positive, self-affirming atmosphere that Invoke effortlessly provides.

Mary Herrera

Mary started Pilates as a way to break up her fitness routine and intense nights at the library during college. After graduating from IUPUI, she suffered a leg injury during a soccer game that challenged her mobility for almost 9 months. Once recovered, Mary came back to Pilates as a way to regain her strength, balance, and flexibility. Falling in love with Pilates all over again and finding a new love for barre, Mary went on to get her Bar Effect Certification in 2015 and Peak Pilates Basic Mat Certification in 2016. Mary is excited to continue her journey with Pilates equipment in 2017.
