About Our Studio.
The Bar Method Marina is the flagship location for the company, opened by Burr Leonard and Carl Diehl in 2001. From small beginnings with only 4 instructors, the studio has grown to provide 107 classes a week – all expertly taught by 16 staff instructors.
As we grew, so did our teachers! As the flagship, our studio also serves as a training ground for new teachers and franchise owners. Many of your favorite instructors and studio owners got their start by training in this very studio.
Some staff members have even moved on to positions at The Bar Method headquarters office, located nearby. In fact, five headquarters employees are also Bar Method Marina instructors. Additionally, three of our highly trained teachers are Master barre teachers who have been with us for over eight years.
