About the studio
The Bar Method Huntington Village 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.
The studio features an inviting lobby, retail area, childcare, and locker room equipped with a shower. There is parking in front of the studio, on adjacent streets and in nearby public lots.
We are reopening September 27 with a full schedule of multiple classes per day. Pop-up classes available Sept 13 - 26 for $15.

About the owners
Kelly Donovan is a Certified Bar Method Instructor and was a long-time client prior to undergoing her extensive certification program last year. In addition to her work at Bar Method, she currently serves on the Huntington School Board as Board Trustee. She grew up in Northport and she and her husband, Dave, have been Huntington residents for nearly a decade. An active and engaged parent to her two daughters, Kelly has always played a significant role in the school PTA and other community organizations. She looks forward to bringing her passion of Bar Method to Huntington and collaborating with her business partners on reopening the studio that they all love so much.
Barbara Merola Pawar discovered The Bar Method Huntington Village when she relocated to Huntington from the city in 2018. She was drawn to the uplifting community of women and met Lauren Nilsson and Kelly Donovan, who would later become her business partners. When not working on her Diamond Thigh, Barbara runs a sales team for a Fortune 10 so understands the value of a community which supports working women. Barbara lives in Huntington with her husband, Giri, and two stepkids.
Lauren Towson Nilsson discovered The Bar Method in 2018 after the birth of her first child and instantly fell in love with the workout, the studio space and The Bar Method community. As a working mom and full-time marketing director in the media industry, taking time for class at Bar Method Huntington Village always felt like an invaluable break from the hectic schedule of balancing personal and professional life. Once the studio became available, she knew becoming an owner was meant to be. She’s grateful to have partnered with Kelly, Barbara and her husband, Andreas Nilsson, to keep Bar Method thriving in the community.
