YoLarates Teacher Training Manual- digital copy

When Lara Foldvari created YoLarates™ ten years ago, she relied on her classical ballet training, her certification in group fitness instruction, and certificates in sport yoga and Pilates mat to teach a safe and effective barre class. She didn’t have the luxury of taking barre classes locally- there wasn’t one within 50 miles of town- so she got inspiration from home workout DVDs. The closest barre teacher certification training was in NYC and would have cost thousands of dollars and a few weeks away from home.

That was ten years ago. It’s a far different story today where there are a plethora of online and live trainings and workshops to choose from. 

*Why a Certification Was Needed

The widespread acceptance of barre training worldwide as a sound method for achieving fitness goals, and its continued adoption as a core offering by fitness professionals across the industry, depends on the success of every student who takes a barre fitness class. For students to achieve the best results, all barre fitness professionals should aspire to the highest standards in their work. Time and time again, we see that one bad experience with an uneducated instructor is often enough to turn a student away from barre training for life. But without any uniform standards or licensing requirements, the quality and safety of programs varies widely from instructor to instructor and facility to facility.

This inconsistency and lack of standards:

· puts students at risk of injury from instructors who are not knowledgeable about proper form and technique

· puts instructors and facilities at risk of liability for student injuries that result from sub-standard instruction

· puts the future of barre fitness training as a whole at risk if students don’t experience the full benefit of barre fitness training or suffer injuries

It also leaves those fitness professionals and facilities who genuinely care about quality and safety without a way to credibly demonstrate their commitment to excellence and their extra concern for their students’ or clients’ safety. Those who invest the extra time, effort, and expense in their training and professional development, to be the best instructors they can be and offer the best programs available, deserve to be publicly acknowledged for their dedication to the advancement of barre training and their commitment to professional excellence. For all of these reasons and more, we created the IBBFA (International Ballet Barre Fitness Association) Barre Certification.*


You owe it to yourself, your students, and the barre community.
