Welcome to our weekly series, Ask a Cody Coach! This week Jacquelyn Umof answers the question, “What makes you so passionate about barre?”
“When I take barre classes and when I teach, I reminisce and it brings me back to when I was professionally dancing and performing all the time. And so I bring that same energy when I teach!”
Jacquelyn is a classically trained ballerina from a very young age, and has danced professionally for LINES Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and later went on to be a Laker Girl for the Los Angeles Lakers. Jacquelyn took her love of dance and brought it into fitness. She became a certified Pilates instructor in high school, and then certified in Barre after college at USC. Jacquelyn was the first instructor to bring Barre to the Equinox in Manhattan Beach, California. Jacquelyn is certified in Barre, Pilates, Reformer Pilates, Yoga, Spinning, Personal Training, and lives a holistic lifestyle.
