Kim Fischer

Kim first started taking Rasamaya Barre and Yoga classes when the studio first opened in 2012. Since then she has immersed herself in all things barre and yoga, and is so excited to be teaching barre classes to this wonderful community!

Through a regular barre and yoga practice, Kim has learned to love her body for its strength, flexibility and power and she hopes to bring the same light to her students, no matter where they are in their practice.

In her other life, she works at Unum, just completed her MBA and loves spending time with her friends and staying active!

Anne Davis

Anne is a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance and a certified Rasamaya Barre instructor.

As a runner, movement lover, outdoor enthusiast, and mom of three, Anne feels fortunate to be a part of your lives at Magnolia. 

Jordan Rowe

Jordan began taking barre classes at Magnolia in 2013, and has been hooked ever since. Being born and raised in the Portland area, Jordan was always looking for a fun, rewarding workout that didn't involve a typical gym environment. Following 4 years of practicing barre, Jordan wanted to take her practice to the next level by completing Level 1 Magnolia Barre Teacher Training. Magnolia helped Jordan fall in love with barre and yoga, and she is so excited to be able to share that love with the community.

Jordan is a graduate of the University of Maine, and when she isn't at Magnolia, she is a communications consultant and obsessed cat mom. She lives in Portland, Maine and loves exploring everything the city and the area has to offer.

Squeeze in a Barre Express workout! We've made this class a few minutes shorter to fit into your busy schedule, but you'll still walk out of the studio satisfied by this fun, and challenging whole body workout.
Magnolia Barre is an athletic workout specifically designed to strengthen and lengthen the body. The class is fueled by upbeat music and efficiently flows through each muscle group, creating endurance and stamina through strength training and increased flexibility through stretching. The movements are influenced by classical ballet barre methods, Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic exercises. The class is taught in a group setting, but offers personalized attention through verbal and hands-on corrections.

Socks are required for class, they may be purchased at the studio for $12 or rented for $1. Pre-registration for class is recommended to ensure a spot, but walk-ins are welcome.
