About the STUDIO
The Bar Method St. Louis - Brentwood 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 St. Louis has two locations, Brentwood and Town and Country, both opened by owner and instructor, Jessica Prasse. Between the two studios, we offer 80 classes per week taught by our fabulous team of well trained instructors.

Jessica Prasse found The Bar Method in 2004 while living in San Francisco. She was an avid workout girl: spinning, running, personal training, kickboxing, yoga, etc. You name it...she did it! But when she discovered The Bar Method, that all changed. One hour of strength training, core work, stretching, and a ballet bar to fulfill her childhood dream of dancing...SOLD! Add in great music and knowledgeable instructors and she gave up all previous workouts. Her body loved Bar just as much, finally seeing the results she had been working so hard for: lean muscles, strength, flexibility and a mind-body connection. She can’t wait to share it with you!
