About the STUDIO

The Bar Method Highland Park 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 are located in Port Clinton Square, in Downtown Highland Park. Our studio has a full locker room, showers, and towel service for your convenience. Port Clinton Square offers free indoor parking with direct access to our building on the lower level. We offer over 25 classes a week in an effort to create a schedule that works for you!

About the

Danna Kriser fell in love with The Bar Method the first time she took class. There was something so unique about it, that she was hooked from the start. After 3 kids, she never thought she could see such changes in her body. She felt challenged both mentally and physically. She stood taller, and leaner. Not only does The Bar Method improve alignment and strengthen muscles—it also improves confidence and opens you up to a community of strong and independent people. Danna loves sharing her passion with new and old students alike!

Sara Gordon discovered The Bar Method in 2008, two days after the studio opened in Highland Park. Sara fell in love with how the seamless choreography of simple movements transform your body into one that radiates strength, grace and confidence. Five years later, Sara traded her law practice for co-ownership. The greatest gift of owning a Bar Method studio is the client community; their intensity, beauty and friendship humble her each day.
