Catie Miller, owner and founder of Xtend Barre London, is a former dancer and performer who has lived in London for the past 8 years. Catie had a ‘change of pace’ moment when she became a mother 4 years ago and decided to elevate her love for fitness, wellbeing and community and has been inspired ever since! Finding Xtend Barre, a workout that sculpts, strengthens and motivates, was something that developed a deeper love and understanding for fitness and brought her back to her dancing roots. She continues to develop her strength and passion for fitness whilst building relationships with the Xtend Barre community. Catie is also STOTT Pilates trained and certified and mostly recently was named a ‘FRESH FACE OF WELLBEING’ by British Vogue.
When the workout burns and the change begins to happen Catie loves to remind her hard working clients… “Welcome to Xtend Barre”!
Beccy is a Yoga Alliance Registered yoga teacher who initially trained in Ashtanga and Rocket with The Yoga People in Goa. She soon went back to train in Yin and Mandala.
Beccy enjoys using the Mayan calendar to theme her classes, using the Mayan elements to inform her teaching. Using the calendar, Beccy chooses and links postures which reflect the element of the day.
With a focus on energetics rather than traditional alignment, all students are able to access the target areas of an asana to gain maximum benefits. This in turn empowers each student to explore and discover their own body. Beccy recognises and appreciates that all bodies are different and her teaching reflects this. In order to ensure all students receive the greatest benefits, Beccy will adjust, instruct and offer alternatives to allow students to develop their practise.
