About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Downtown LA 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.

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.

In 2008, she was hired as the Managing Director for three Bar Method studios in the Los Angeles area. A year later, she became a National Trainer and Evaluator for The Bar Method.

Crystal Sovay has been a Bar Method instructor in Los Angeles since 2010. She has been a competitive, professional dancer and instructor for 20+ years. Her career brought her to Los Angeles from Orange County in 2004 while dancing for the Los Angeles Laker Girls. The Bar Method has not only changed her life from a fitness perspective, but it has also ignited a passion in her that has been missing since she stopped dancing professionally in 2006. This passion for health and wellness expanded into other aspects of her life and inspired her to earn her Bachelor’s in Nutrition Sciences in 2012.
