About the studio
The Bar Method Lake Oswego 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 Bar Method Lake Oswego is located in the busy Lake Grove district and features two workout studios, a spa-like lounge and locker room. We adhere to CDC sanitation guidelines and maintain social distancing standards within class. We are open 7 days a week with classes throughout the day, in-studio and online. Free parking is available in our shared lot.

About the owner
Beth Hutchison has been teaching The Bar Method since 2013. She is a wife, lululemon ambassador, Portland Gear ambassador, dog mom, and is passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves.
She describes each of her classes as a celebration. "Every class I teach is its own party. I love cheering on the small victories that lead to big accomplishments. Don’t get me wrong—I am a stickler for form & for giving me your maximum effort—but with a smile. If it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing!"
Reservations & Waitlist
- 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. The schedule opens every Sunday at 4 pm for the following 7 days.
- 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 if you’re opted in to receive notifications.
- Being bumped off the waitlist into class means you are IN CLASS and therefore responsible for cancelling your spot if your plans changed.
- If you get into class from the waitlist prior to class start and do not show up or cancel your reservation, you may receive a penalty.
- If you get into class from the waitlist and are already scheduled for another class in the same day, you will need to cancel your reservation for your other class within the appropriate cancellation window; if you do not cancel, you will be charged a penalty for the unattended class. We are unable to accommodate switching classes past the cancellation window.
- If you cannot attend class, you must cancel your class online or on The Bar Method app to avoid being charged for a no-show. You must cancel your reservation at least 4 hours prior to class time to avoid a penalty. This 4-hour cancellation window includes Kids Club classes.
- If you are using a class package, a no-show or cancellation after the cutoff window results in a loss of that class. If you are using a membership package, your card on file will be charged $19 for Late Cancels & $22 for No-Shows.
- Switching Classes: If you would like to switch to a different time past the cutoff window of your reservation, you may do so without incurring a fee under the following condition:
- Weekday Classes: If you would like to move to another class that same day AND the class you are LEAVING is NOT full, you can switch with no penalty providing that you communicate this switch to our Front Desk Staff.
- Weekend Classes: Please note ANY class switching past the cutoff window prior to class is subject to a fee.
- Waitlisted Classes: Any late cancel or no-show to a waitlisted class will result in an automatic penalty of $19 for Late Cancels & $22 for No-Shows (Unlimited Members), or the loss of 1 class (Class Packs). Membership quarterly freebies will NOT apply in this instance.
- We highly encourage new clients arrive 15 minutes early to get set up for success.
- Latecomer cutoff for all classes is 5 minutes after the start of class.
- Please note that your spot may be taken by another standby client if you are not at the studio when class begins.
- Upon entering class, perform 40 knee-lifts to warm up before joining in.
- Please wear exercise pants that cover the knees (or wear compression/bike shorts under above-knee shorts), and socks that cover the entire foot (including toes).
- Please do not bring glass or uncapped drinks into the exercise studios. Capped water bottles are allowed. Only water is allowed in the exercise studio.
- Please do not bring cell phones into the exercise studio. Lockers are provided with keys and we ask that you leave your phone in a locker along with the rest of your belongings. If you are on call or have a pager you need for emergencies, you may leave it at the front desk and we will come get you out of class.
- Please do not chew gum in the exercise studio.

- Clients with a heart condition, epilepsy, lupus, or severe sciatica, must provide the front desk with a note from their doctor the first visit allowing them to take strengthening and stretching classes.
- Please notify front desk staff and instructors of any illness or injury that may impact your ability to exercise. In some cases, a doctor’s note may be required to allow you to take class.
- If you have a cold or anything else that may be contagious we ask that you do not attend class.
- Reservations required for Kids Club. You can make reservations for Kids Club online, by phone, email, or at the studio. When reserving by phone, please indicate your name, the time of the class you plan to attend, along with the name and age of your child.
- A Kids Club Single Pass is $7 per child, and a 10-Pack is $60 – available online or in-studio.
