Foundation Xtend Barre Teacher Training 2020

Have you always been dreamed of becoming a Barre instructor? We are looking for Xtend Barre Superstars to join our Upside Motion team!

The Xtend Barre method, created by Andrea Rogers, combines elements of Pilates and dance to create a dynamic and safe workout. Where other barre programs focus only on the small movements, Xtend Barre’s diverse programs focus on the movement of the whole body, delivering cardio, strength, endurance, and flexibility.

Our foundation Xtend Barre teacher training program sets us apart with an elevated educational experience that includes Pilates Mat foundations, Basic Anatomy, and our unique teaching formula. This comprehensive instruction creates an amazingly talented, passionate, and enthusiastic Xtend Barre team of teachers worldwide.

At the end of it all, you’ll transform your love of barre into a skillset that will inspire people to take their fitness to new levels. Plus lay the foundation for more Xtend Barre training to strengthen your barre career. All we ask to apply is a personable nature, at least 10 Xtend Barre classes under your belt and above all a passion for barre fitness.

This training consist of 50-hours of in-class lectures and 50-hours of Apprenticeship Training.

Dedicated students looking to deepen their knowledge and take their practice to a new level are also welcome to participate. Om Factory’s particular style of Aerial classes was developed over several years by Om Factory's Core Aerial Faculty and continues to be shaped by our aerial community. It is heavily rooted in and inspired by a traditional yoga practice.

50HR training only option is available upon request for interested candidates who are already certified in other Aerial methods.

In light of Coronavirus, we are going to postpone OmFactory x Upside Motion Aerial Teacher Training to the latter half of the year.

Having said that, the info session on 22nd February will also be postponed until further notice. We will keep you posted on the updated training dates. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
