The fall has been a veritable bounty of exciting community events! We were able to participate in some of our favorite yearly events and we introduced some that we believe will become annual traditions for labarre. Trick or Treat the Alameda was even more charming this year than in the past. The equipe was (tricked and) treated to some whimsical costumes across all genres and ages! Members and staff dialed up their Halloween vibes and partook in the festivities showing that we too, can raise the barre in the neighborhood when it comes to the Holidays!
Our Open House was a magnificent time getting to meet so many new faces! Big thanks and shout out to our contributors from: ROZ, Desserts Designed, Shakerpoor Chiropractic, and Zanotto’s Market!
We also loved the fierce crew who turned out for our very first ‘flash mob’ and we simply couldn’t have been more thrilled with the reception. Stay tuned for more opportunities in the future to join in the labarre family fun!
AOur Community Programs Coordinator, Leilani Borer, is working as hard as ever. A visit to Levi’s Stadium to connect with our friends at the 49ers yielded the very first WON (Women of the Niners) event. This debut program by the Forty Niners saw business from all over the Bay Area, including our very own labarre studios. The WON event was followed by a relaxing pop-up yoga class at Whole Foods on The Alameda and culminated in bringing Senior Drumming to Belmont Village. We have just scratched the surface of what we can do in around Santa Clara County and are always open to new ideas which can be suggested right HERE!
Within the studio doors, the good will continues. Our Beat Breast Cancer Class which delivered 100% of its proceeds raised $1,000+ for Bay Area Cancer Connections! A portion of the proceeds from all pink ribbon merchandise also added to that number and we are so very pleased to take part in such meaningful, emotional and impactful events.
Speaking of meaningful and impactful - Toys for Tots was a complete success! New and unwrapped toys, books, sports equipment, bath gift sets, backpacks, purses, and games brightened so many needy families’ holidays. Thanks to our United States Marines for launching this incredible program which is now 7 decades old and counting! In our inaugural year we were honored to serve along the brave women and men who proudly protect our country.
Charts, words of wisdom and bingo cards often hang in the “alley” inside labarre. This fall was no different. Our 2nd annual Fall 15 Fitness Challenge grew this year with 19 people earning swag, gift cards, facials, and even an entire outfit. Big props are due to Bevin Baldwin and Mila Borodavkina for attending 27 classes during the challenge! Extra congratulations go to Cathy Torrisi, Katherine Richmond, Eliana Nathan, and Mila Borodavkina for going the extra mile to earn themselves each one of our grand prizes.
The star charts may be out of the alley for now but they’ll be back in 2019, we promise.
As the calendar turned to 2019, the equipe grew and some great new faces and names are leading the charge along with our strong core of founding instructors.
With that ROZ and our esthetician extraordinaire, Lorena Garcia is making magic for our members. If you haven’t checked out all the offerings ROZ provides you are missing out. Our labarre members get a 20% discount off of all ROZ services, including seasonal specials to skin clearing facials and restorative treatments. There’s something for everyone to benefit from at ROZ and if you think that is an added value, in about 1-week labarre will be exploding with great news as we are now offering massage therapy and chiropractic care. Be sure to check the labarrestudios.com as these new services will be available February 1st!
