Sphericality's Teacher of the Month
Motto: Keep Calm and Barre On
Christine's interest in barre fitness was sparked by an infomercial. She quickly realized that just watching the
infomercial wouldn't help her become fit or healthy. The hunt for finding the perfect studio began and ended when Christine walked into Sphericality. Within 20 minutes of her first class (taught by Christine Houghton!) Christine was hooked on barre, and, soon after that, she decided she wanted to become a part of the teaching community.
Sparkle, Flow & Vibrato.
If you haven't heard yet, the Yoga, Opera, Glitter event on Saturday was nothing short of fantastically happy! To kick off her energetic and sparkling vinyasa class, Natalie opened with an aria from Carmen. During the number, she gracefully navigated the sold-out, mat-to-mat room, brushing glitter onto all of the delighted and eager yogis in attendance. Natalie treated us to several more gorgeous numbers, pausing occasionally to give yoga cues. Turn on your volume and check out a snippet of the shimmering show by following the link below!
Put your hands together for all of our tenacious participants and the recipients of the following awards:

Melissa's Class Count

This beautiful lady has totally embraced what the Sphericality community is all about. Her strength, drive and dazzling personality are just a few of the many reasons we love seeing her around the studio. I had the pleasure of meeting her lovely husband and beautiful little girl at our SAGE mixer.
Most Total Classes: Stella Agaronin
Stella's Class Count

Stella's commitment is unparalleled. Even with a trip to Disney over Spring Break, she was still able to attend 78 classes! Isn't that crazeee? We absolutely love her, and the studio community wouldn't be the same without her.
Socialite Award: Joyann Santoro
Joyann's Class Count:

This gal went from a barre boot camp junkie to a functional fitness mixer upper! This month, she went to willPower, pilates, tn'p, yogalates and Zumba! She supported our SAGE mixer and even encouraged a dear friend to join us.
Most Enthusiastic: Liz Davachi
Liz's Class Count:
This Month: 39
Last Month: 20
This lady has the brightest smile and brings such great energy wherever she goes. Kudos for mixing up your schedule by trying new teachers and for your incredible support for what we do here.
Best Selfie: Karin Schneider
Karin's Class Count:
This Month: 24
Last Month: 31
This gal managed to achieve this total even with a week away in Cali. She managed to keep on truckin' with her barre workouts while she was thousands of miles away from the studio. I'm so proud that this lady, one of my BA warriors, has opened herself up to new modalities of exercise. Although they may not be "her thing," she knows they're good for her body and mind. She motivates me to deliver more in every class she attends.
Here's her winning selfie - a sweet shot of Karin casually fitting in a quick water-ski on the Golden Coast. We totally dig the hat, too.
Most Improved Player 1: Joanne Wakefield
Joanne's Class Count:
This Month: 20
Last Month: 7
This lady has shown so much enthusiasm and faith in what we do here. Her body has transformed so much this past month. I see it in her strength, stamina and her physical appearance. Her commitment is a wonderful example of how our studio can enhance lives, and, in turn, how these bright lives make our community a happier, more beautiful place.
Most Improved Player 2: Jessica Long
Jessica's Class Count:
This Month: 31
Last Month: 13
This gal holds a special place in my heart because I was here with her on her first visit. I saw first-hand the determination in her heart to make a change. That was a short 3 months ago. Her body has transformed; she looks like a 3-year barre veteran in her form and execution, AND she has mixed up her schedule like crazy!
Most Improved Player 3: Ellen Kuder
Ellen's Class Count:
This Month: 32
Last Month: 9
Don't be fooled by her cool, calm and quiet presence! This lady is someone I know to be extremely competitive and committed to her health and quality of life. This month, this all-barre-gal added in yoga, yogalates, pilates and TRX. Her positive attitude, incredible energy and huge heart are just a few of the characteristics that have earned her this award.
