The Barre+Yoga Room Registered 200 Hour Yoga School with barre certification

The B+Y School and barre certification will give you the tools to not only mentally practice the fundamental and traditional styles of yoga, but also introduce you to fitness elements that can be taught at the barre or implemented in your yoga classes and personal practice.


Our B+Y practice spans all styles of yoga from the most gentle and meditative, to the more intense and fiery styles of practice. We believe yoga is a spectrum that should be able to pertain to all bodies and all abilities, nurturing the mind and strengthening the body one practice at a time.


Mary Ruth Smith developed the barre and yoga practice in hopes of adding a more yogic mindset to barre fitness. Through this she developed a deeper love for yoga that made barre so much better for her physically, and a true desire to merge the two together for a life changing experience with each class.

Mary danced from age 3 through college, and then found barre and yoga after having her first child and looking for a way to get back to herself as a new mom. She taught in two local barre studios and took her 200 hour training within Savannah, Georgia between 2012 and 2015, and then opened The Barre+Yoga Room in January 2016. Her first yoga school graduated in the Spring of 2018, and she has led 2 cohorts since.


Whether you’re new to yoga or you’ve been practicing a while, you are ready for your next step in your yoga journey.
