About the studio
The Bar Method Palos Verdes 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.
Everyone is welcome at The Bar Method Palos Verdes! We are grateful for each of you who make this great studio possible. Our passion and commitment is ensuring every class you take is one you feel great about and delivers positive and reinforcing outcomes in a caring and supportive environment.
Services & Amenities
- Beauty Bar
- Free Parking
- Traveling Program
- Waiting Area
- 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.
- If you cannot attend class, cancel your class online, on The Bar Method app, or call the studio to avoid being charged for a no-show. Early morning classes require cancellation 12 hours in advance to avoid a penalty. All classes that begin after 7 AM require cancellation 1 hour in advance.
- If you are using a class package, a no-show or cancellation after the above cutoff window results in a loss of that class. If you are using a membership package, your account will be charged $10.
- First time students may not enter a class late. Arriving 10 minutes early is highly recommended.
- Returning students may enter up to, but not after, 10 minutes into class.

- We provide towels without charge. Hand towels are available in both restrooms, and bath towels are available in the shower area. Please leave your towel in the hamper on your way out.
- Our studio takes pride in an inclusive and supportive environment. Please join us in being constructive and encouraging to each other, and tolerant and flexible to everyone’s differences as much as possible.
- Disruptive students may be asked to leave. Please be respectful of fellow students, your instructor, and the nature of a carefully timed and choreographed class. Whenever possible, use the time before and after class to ask questions and get clarification and form coaching.
- Pregnant clients must provide the front desk with a note from their doctor allowing them to take strengthening and stretching classes.
- It is strongly encouraged that all pregnant clients take at least one pre-natal class before taking a standard class. We also recommend that pregnant clients avoid Level 2 and Bar Move classes.

- If you have a cold or anything else that may be contagious we ask that you do not attend class.
- Bar Method Palos Verdes does not offer childcare.
- Children not requiring supervision are welcome and may sit in the lobby during class.
