barre.[d] studio Downtown CVILLE is located across the street from the the ice-skating rink! There is plenty of street parking, this studio also validates for the Water Street Parking Garage.

this studio has such a vibrant and supportive community! Every class I've taken has been fun and challenging and the instructors are wonderful. Whether you're looking to get back in shape or for a challenging workout, this will shape your life!
The instructor gave me modifications to allow me to work hard..but at my own pace. It felt great doing something for my body and having some time for ME.
The teachers are wonderful and the workouts always push me past my comfort zone. I've noticed a BIG difference in the way I look and more importantly the way I feel since starting this method - my lower back pain has disappeared, my posture has improved, and my body feels stronger when I do other forms of exercise like running!


You don’t have to be good at barre to start barre! We offer an inclusive and welcoming environment to begin your barre practice. Our classes are dynamic and innovative, designed to make everyone leave strong and experience a GREAT workout! Wear yoga-like workout cloths and bring a water bottle. If you are new, give yourself 10 minutes to check-in and meet your instructor!


It’s easy to create a FIT routine when you don’t have to worry about finding a babysitter. We offer complimentary childcare on selected classes. You can view what classes offer childcare by simply noting (childcare available) next to the class you wish to attend. No need to register! Just get ready to barre.


barre is a fusion workout of pilates, yoga, physiotherapy, and dance. our method remains low-impact with a POP of HIIT training incorporated to increase the caloric burn and strengthen your muscles.

Rachel Phillips

Downtown CVILLE Studio Owner

I moved to Charlottesville in 2014 to take a job as a Physical Education Teacher. I thought that was it and that I had found my true passion. While I am extremely passionate about teaching, I found my way into barre about 2 years ago and immediately fell in love with everything about it. I began teaching at Barre.[d] Studio Charlottesville a year ago and my passion for helping others through movement at the barre grew even more and ignited a passion in me that I didn’t even know existed. I left each class energized and completely high on life. That was when I knew I wanted to take the next step and have barre become my life and my future. I am extremely humbled to have the opportunity to become a leader in this community and incredibly excited to watch and be a part of this brand as it grows into something even more beautiful then it already is.
