kara varilonewest coast manager of training and quality assurance
Originally from Michigan, Kara recently relocated to Denver to join the corporate Pure Barre team after five years in Los Angeles. A natural athlete, she has always participated in a number of dance and sports activities. This love of an active lifestyle led her to discover Pure Barre in 2009, and from her first class she was hooked. Kara became a Pure Barre teacher in 2010, and soon added the role of General Manager of Studio Operations for the Brentwood (Los Angeles) studio to her repertoire before departing in early 2013 for Colorado.
Kara received an undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in Apparel and Textile Design before pursuing a second degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Graphic Design. While her love for design still informs the aesthetics of her daily life, she feels she has found her true passion in Pure Barre and is thrilled to join the training team in Denver and continue to share the technique she loves with the world.
