Growing up, Rachel took lessons in ballet, tap and gymnastics. Through the years, Rachel has pursued many forms of physical fitness including tennis, running, zumba, and yoga. After attending her first barre class she was immediately hooked! Upon discovering her love for barre, she developed a passion for the method. The mental and spiritual connection she was able to find within her body became a message she desired to share with other women.


Almost since the beginning, Rachel has trained under Amy Weber, creator of THE pow{h}er METHOD, in both barre n’ pow{h}er and tap n’ pow{h}er.


Rachel previously owned an interior design firm, RP Designs, and has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Lipscomb University. Rachel has a husband and two daughters that are the lights of her life. She takes great pleasure in helping women achieve their goals, mentally, physically and spiritually. Her hope is that, through teaching, she can help women to see themselves the way the Creator intended.



Kathryn has enjoyed being active all of her life! She instructed gymnastics as a teen and then continued instructing step aerobics, spin, and water classes during college. After a pause in her group fitness activities for marriage, medical training, and having 4 wonderful children, she decided to return to group fitness. After trying out a barre class several years ago, Kathryn fell in love with the physical and mental concepts of strength, flexibility, and balance. She was also drawn to the feasibility of being able to continue the practice as she enjoys “aging gracefully” on this earth.


After falling in love with barre, Kathryn was then introduced to tap n’ pow{h}er under Amy Weber. She was taken by the mind-body-spiritual alignment encouraged in the program. She also loved the additive of cardio as desired to help round out her whole fitness practice. Kathryn is now certified in barre and tap n’ pow{h}er and looks forward to continuing in her personal growth and sharing these opportunities with others.



It was love at first class for Jennie-Blair. She quickly became addicted to how barre made her feel and how it changed her body. Jennie-Blair’s love for fitness began early in her life as a dancer, gymnast, basketball player, cheerleader and a competitive swimmer. During college, she continued to pursue physical fitness including running, swimming, spinning and weight training. Her competitive side, and pursuit for physical fitness, lead to many half marathons and triathlons including one triathlon in Walt Disney World! Barre, however, has won her heart and she is now an integral part of our team.


Jennie-Blair graduated from The University of Memphis and is currently self-employed as a Certified Public Accountant. She moved to Nashville in 2000 with her husband and high school sweetheart of 24 years (married 16 years). They have two beautiful daughters and two Shih Tzu’s. The mind-body connection, the noticeable physical changes, and the sense of community are among the many things Jennie-Blair loves about Barre. She is excited to share her barre experience with other women.

Anna discovered barre in 2013 while pregnant with her third child. She immediately fell in love with the practice, especially the mind-body connection. A year later, that love expanded to include tap n’ pow{h}er. Since childhood Anna has participated in various forms of dance in athletics including ballet, tap, softball, basketball, gymnastics, and tennis. In adulthood, she found a love for yoga, pilates, and running and has completed two half marathons. Knowing she would love to be an instructor, Anna was certified to teach Barre in June of 2015. She has also also completed tap n’ power training. Anna is so excited to share the beauty and transformative qualities of both barre and tap n’ pow{h}er with others in her community!



A competitive runner and dancer in high school, athletics was always part of Mandy’s life. Her first experience with yoga was during college. She realized she needed to broaden her fitness exposure to include some ‘stretching’ for injury prevention. However, it wasn’t until becoming a mom for the first time that she fell in love with it; her first prenatal Iyengar class had her hooked! Since then, Mandy has followed her dream to become eRYT-200 certified through Yoga Alliance! She enjoys incorporating various types of yoga styles into her classes including Vinyasa, Power and Iyengar. Mandy also holds additional hours/certified to teach prenatal yoga!
