About the studio
The Bar Method Clayton Valley 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.

About the owners
Julie Burk's Bar Method journey began over 9 years ago at the Walnut Creek studio. She instantly loved the safe and effective workout that challenged her both mentally and physically. She was also excited to find she could continue with the Bar Method throughout pregnancy. Julie has lived in the Concord/Clayton area since 2011 and is truly delighted to bring The Bar Method to her community. Outside the studio, Julie enjoys motorcycle adventures with her husband and spending time with her 9 kids!
- While walk-ins are welcome, class sizes are limited and can be sold out. We highly recommend reserving classes online or The Bar Method app in order to guarantee your spot in class. Reservations are studio specific and can be made up to 14 days in advance.
- Classes fill up quickly, but spaces will open up as clients reschedule. If you’d like to attend a class that is full, please put yourself on the waitlist. As soon as a spot opens up in class, you will receive either an email or text notification. Please reply to the notification immediately whether you can attend or not. Your spot in class is not guaranteed until you confirm.
- When you arrive at the studio, please check-in at the front desk. Reservations will be honored only up to the start of class. If you do not arrive prior to the start of class, your reservation will be given away to anyone on the waitlist.
- If you are on the waitlist for an early morning class, please call the studio before class or sign up for text message notifications to be sure of whether or not you made it into the class.
- If one hour before class is due to start, there are less than 3 people registered for the class, that class will be cancelled and you will be alerted. To avoid this, please register so we know you are coming!
- If you cannot attend class, cancel your class online, on The Bar Method app, or call the studio to avoid being charged for a no-show. Early morning classes (before 7:00 AM) require cancellation by 8pm the night before to avoid a penalty. All classes that begin after 7 AM require cancellation 2 hour in advance. Otherwise you will be charged a $10 late cancel fee.
