Tribeca is getting an indie barre studio with $25 classes

Tribeca’s getting its first dedicated barre studio this fall, but it won’t be a carpeted corporate franchise.

Partners Lisa Stefanelli and Lisa Grossman expect to open Barre Tribeca on October 1, within blocks of a slew of other recent fitness openings in the neighborhood this year (such as Lyons Den Power Yoga, Exceed Physical Culture, and S10 Training). But there isn’t a  dedicated barre studio among them. “Tribeca is just fitness crazed, and we’re bringing the barre studio to the party,” Stefanelli says.

A successful artist (and “fitness enthusiast”), she’s having her painting studio transformed into Barre Tribeca, and it’s housed in the same old-school, artsy building as Kula Yoga. “That is definitely our energy and our vibe,” she says.

Grossman, a trainer, is heading up the class design and will serve as master instructor, and the studio will also offer Pilates. And Stefanelli says that while they want to deliver a tough workout, they’ll be incorporating more breath work at the barre and cultivating a feeling of calm amid the city’s chaos. “We really want to be able to slow down a little. We want to have a nice energy there that isn’t going to put gasoline onto the fire of life in New York City,” she says.

Starting with a class price that won’t give you heart palpitations. Single classes will be $25 (Physique charges $36, and Bar Method $37, for comparison), which is sure to incite lots of initial sighs of relief, at least. —Lisa Elaine Held
