Our studio is located in the newly renovated D Street Village building between 30th and 31st Streets in the heart of the thriving SE Division/Clinton neighborhood. We have limited street parking available out front and we have ample bike storage on site. The lofty, comfortable décor and open layout of Xtend Barre Portland creates a welcoming environment for our clients and remains true to the sense of community in and around SE Portland.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out a short waiver and to take a look around the studio. Wear clothes that allow you to bend and move freely in and that you don’t mind getting a bit sweaty. You’ll definitely want a pair of grippy socks, which you can purchase online or at the studio.

Xtend Barre PDX is a community within a community where staff and clients support, encourage, and empower one another to work our hardest and feel our best, inside and out.
