About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Nashville - Belle Meade 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 Nashville offers an airy workout studio, a spacious locker room, and a fitness and lifestyle retail boutique. Although our address is listed as Harding Pike, we are tucked further back, behind the old Belle Meade movie theater and next to Regions bank.

Maia Barbier discovered The Bar Method in Portland, OR in 2012. Maia always had an interest in wellness and wanted to live an active lifestyle, though she never found any exercise as compelling and addictive as The Bar Method. She attended class 4 to 6 times a week, and the method and the studio community gave her the mental and physical strength she needed during a challenging period in her professional life. She was thrilled to become an instructor in Portland in 2014 and even more thrilled as an owner now. She loves building community, strength, and confidence through her work in Nashville.
- 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 7 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.
