Katharine started Pure Barre in January of 2020 at the Athens, GA studio. She was finishing up her MFA at the University of Georgia, and the weekly drives to Atlanta to visit the rock climbing gym were too time consuming. So when she decided to try Pure Barre, it was just to complement her other training. However, after her first class, she immediately committed to the unlimited membership. Now that she is back in Atlanta and teaching art at a local private school, the Vinings studio is her new home. She is thrilled to share her passion for the Pure Barre technique on the mic with others. She loves to see others succeed and reach their goals with PB and watch as the community grows as strong as our bodies.
