Shore Barre is Bethany's first, and only authentic barre fitness program. Shore Barre Owner and Principal Instructor, Julie Wender, began her career at the barre 12 years ago in New York. Julie's extensive training traces back to the original Lotte Berk Method Studio, having completed her foundational training with Burr Leonard, Founder of The Bar Method. Seven years into her career, to keep her practice organic and well informed, Julie chose to enhance her teaching skills through exhale's Barre Certification Program. She participated in one of exhale's very first teacher training programs, under the direct tutelage of Core Fusion Co-Founders Fred DeVito and Elisabeth Halfpapp – whom Barre aficionados worldwide consider to be the world’s foremost living barre experts.
Julie is Barre Certified by exhale®, certified by ACE (American Council on Exercise) as a Group Fitness Instructor, and an ACE Certified Orthopedic Exercise Specialist.
Julie is the former Owner of Potomac, Maryland's Barre Belle Fitness Studio (2011-2015), and in 2012, was named one of "Spry" Magazine's "40 Hottest Trainers over 40." Her depth of training and practical experience in barre, provide her with an understanding of the structure and function of major joints, common musculoskeletal conditions, and general treatment clients may receive from orthopedic specialists. As a result, Julie has been able to develop a barre fitness program to incorporate exercise progressions that address muscle imbalances, prevent injury, and improve movement patterns, muscular strength and endurance.
