March 6th Barre Fitness Teacher Training
Learn the essentials to masterfully create and lead a barre fitness class. This will be a 40 hour training that you will provide you with the tools you need to effectively lead a challenging, safe, and inclusive work-out for as many bodies and minds as possible.

Hayley Saccomano will be leading this training. She has led 4 aerial sling teacher trainings at this point with 100% of all trainees who completed requirements found work teaching after Fly Freak training. This will be her first barre teacher training. Hayley has been a barre fanatic for around 5 years now. She has found the therapeutic nature of the work-out to be an exquisite compliment to her yoga and aerial routine. In 2017, Jackie Gladney of the former Dhama Cycle Yoga invited her to train to become a barre instructor. Hayley is also registered to train with the Booty Barre program in December and will be completing two levels of their training. She has instructed barre at DharmaCycle Yoga, Barre Bliss, and now Fly Freak since 2017 and it has been a sweaty, shaky good time since. #barresohardthatshakecray
Hayleys training began in 2012 with a 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher training in Berkeley/San Francisco with Yoga to the People. She then journeyed to Mysore, India to deepen her scope. There she received a 300-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certificate with Yoga Darshanam. While in India, she stayed and studied Ashtanga briefly with Saraswathi Jois and MasterJi. She later journeyed to Mexico to study Power Yoga (40 Hour TT) with The Bad Boy of Yoga, Bryan Kest. In 2015, she trained for 40 hours to be an Aerial Yoga Teacher with Galaxy Lifestyle in San Diego.
