August … and summer… faded away with a wonderful event this past Sunday. Again, we took part in Stroll the Alameda and the sweet sounds of Richard Nieset playing classical guitar was only made better by the amazing vintners from Loma Prieta Wines. A great way to close out a wonderful summer and prepare us for a fall packed with amazing new classes, equipe members and opportunities to ‘design yourself’ here at labarre studios.
ROZ, our in-house salon which is headed by the fabulous Lorena Garcia, is going stronger than ever. Leading the services at ROZ, our guests have enjoyed the facials among many of the offerings. If you haven’t taken a look at our new facial menu, be sure to check it out right here or stop in yourself to see what ROZ has to offer.
Calling all IDEAS! We have a new suggestion box, up at the front desk. Please keep us fresh by sharing what you would like to see at labarre studios. Everything is on the table, from massage therapy, additional esthetician services, theme suggestions for drumming, new classes and disciplines, we are always listening and learning from our guests and the old-school suggestion box is just another way to connect. Of course, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as well!
We have received rave reviews on our new express classes and these are a result of listening to you and hearing your suggestions loud and clear. We can’t wait to introduce our new schedule in September, which includes more morning express classes and new disciplines as well. Here are just a few of the amazing things you have had to say!

Our 90’s Drumming Class was jam-packed! We love seeing our loyal drummers and first-time drummers jammin’ to those favorite 90’s hits. We are eagerly crafting more fun sets for our drumming sessions so get ready because we will have some fun soon. Returning in September is our “current music” drumming theme. Be sure to sign up early, as classes will fill up very quickly. Please note our monthly drumming class times have changed to a little later time frame.

Timing is Everything
One of the most common questions I get while working with women on their health and nutrition habits is “what are the best times to eat?” There are a lot of varying opinions on this, but when you look at the research on meal timing and frequency of eating, it’s pretty clear how to time your meals so they support your body as best as possible. Your meal timing should aim to support steady blood sugar, a healthy metabolism and consistent energy levels throughout the day. Here are some tips to get the most out of your meal timing:
1 cup steamed then frozen zucchini
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 pack unsweetened açaí (I like Sambazon)
1 scoop vanilla plant based protein powder
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 tsp cinnamon
12 oz unsweetened almond milk
Optional: top with raw cacao nibs and goji berries
Blend and enjoy!
How do I even begin to thank the folks who have supported, evangelized and helped build labarre? I can only do what I do and that is remind you that without you – the incredible guests of labarre – we are without purpose. Thank you for allowing us to help you design yourself.
