Maria found Pure Barre while looking for a low impact but challenging workout after having her first child in 2017. She fell in love with the technique, how it made her feel, and the results. With experience as a personal trainer, as well as a yoga and pilates instructor, she became an instructor the very same year! Her love for Pure Barre led her to manage the Vernon Hills studio. Trained in all three formats, her favorite class to teach and take is Reform and Classic. Her favorite part of class is the ab work.
