About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Austin - Downtown is a boutique fitness studio offering barre classes for students of all levels. The signature method uses your own body weight, the ballet barre and a few props to create a transformative workout that results in long, lean sculpted muscles. Not only does it reshape your entire body, but it allows you to channel your inner strength and leave class feeling strong, confident and poised. Highly-trained instructors customize the exercises to ensure they are safe and effective for any age and every body, including modifications for pregnant women and students with injuries. Our staff and community are here to support you from the moment you walk through the door.
We have been keeping Austin fit since 2011. With over 40 classes a week, we continue to set the standard for effective exercise – all taught by classically-trained and engaging instructors. Easy (and free!!) parking, full locker room and showers, and quick access for anyone coming from Downtown, Central Austin, or Westlake.

Lindsey first discovered The Bar Method as a client, and quickly found that The Bar Method never actually gets easier - you just get better, and that the life benefits go way beyond leaner legs and a sculpted seat. Her love for the workout and immediate connection to The Bar Method community, inspired her to become an instructor in 2015. Watching the shift in clients' confidence, strength, and bodies, motivates Lindsey daily, as an instructor and owner. Lindsey is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, and lived and worked in New York, San Francisco and Chicago before moving to Austin and becoming a full-time mom to her sweet girls, Dylan and Brooklyn.
