About the STUDIO

The Bar Method Seattle - South Lake Union 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 Seattle opened in 2011 in the fashionable Seattle neighborhood of South Lake Union. The modern, chic yet warm space boasts gorgeous views of the iconic Space Needle from the studio, which bustles between 6am and 9pm. Hardworking professionals, dedicated moms, and ambitious students rely on The Bar Method for their daily endorphin fix.

About the

Maika Manring holds a degree in Psychology/Exercise Science and was an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) fitness trainer for several years. She left her career in fitness to work in finance but exercise remained as her personal passion and hobby. She often says that only The Bar Method has rivaled her love of running and that The Bar Method has changed her body and her life unlike any other exercise.

Steffi Schirling was born and raised in Germany until her career in dance brought her to NYC in 2011. After suffering from a back injury, she hung up her dancing shoes and traded them in for grippy socks. She was drawn to the Bar Method’s safe and effective technique, its high standards and strong communities. Steffi became an instructor in 2014, then a studio manager and helped with a new studio build-out in NY. She landed in Seattle in 2017, where she managed and taught before becoming an owner. Steffi instantly felt at home thanks to the warm welcome of the Seattle Bar Method. Her vision is to provide a transformative workout, a supportive, friendly community and lots of Pretzels 😉
