Checking in on our fabulous preggo ladies from last year, we recently caught up with Kristina Burkhardt while she was kicking ass and taking names in a Poise Fusion class. Kristina was featured back in November; while 8 months pregnant, she was throwing some of the hardest punches we had ever seen in Piloxing Barre! We're constantly inspired by Kristina's "can do" attitude and are so excited to hear how her first few months of motherhood have gone!

Are you signed up for text alerts?
We know that hanging around waiting to find out if you've made it off the wait list can be frustrating - that #waitlistprobs hashtag exists for a reason! However, with our text alert service, you can be notified the second you get into a class. Best of all, you can respond via text to confirm your spot in class - it's that easy. To make sure you receive text alerts, just follow these simple steps:
1. Log into your online account.
2. Click the "My Info" tab.
3. Click "Edit" next to your Personal Profile information.
4. Enter your cell phone number in the "Mobile Phone" box.
5. Next to "Notification Preference," select "Email and text messages" if you want to continue to receive both forms of notice, or "Text messages only" if you no longer want to receive email notifications. We recommend keeping both email and text!
6. Click "Save."
That's all there is to it - and now you'll receive the latest updates on your schedule as soon as they happen!
Don't forget your barresocks!
As a reminder, please remember that studio slippers or socks WITH GRIPS are required for all barre and Poise method classes - check the class description to confirm what footwear you need for class. If you are wearing regular socks, our staff will ask you to switch to barresocks, which are available for purchase in the studio for $12. This is for your safety - without the grips, regular socks do not have the traction to keep you safe when planking, performing moves like mountain climbers, or when lunging or jumping. We know adjusting to the new policy is taking time, but please remember that we put our footwear policy in place to keep you safe! The good news is, we never sacrifice style at Studio Poise, so we have a TON of cute options to choose from - your grippy socks can help you express your personality! Take some time to check out the different styles so you can show a little flair while you're pulsing at the barre.
The quest for 5...
We're so excited to support our New England Patriots in their quest for their fifth Super Bowl ring! Stay tuned for a special offer to celebrate the Pats advancing to the big game - we'll have more detail later this week. We'll be rocking our Pats gear in class throughout the week, so show your team spirit as you sweat and sparkle with us!
Ch-ch-ch-changes are on their way for Studio Poise! With the Boss Lady heading into the home stretch, awaiting the arrival of Baby B 2.0, we've got some changes to the schedule to announce, so read on to see who'll be covering your favorite D.Ro classes. We know change is hard, so we're hoping that the roll out of new Poisewear and a special pop up class will help to ease the transition. Read on for all the news!
November's Poised and Preggo star was Kristina Burkhardt and it wouldn't be Studio Poise if we didn't end the year with a bang! Jenniffer Migliaccio joined the Studio Poise family in June 2016 and rose the ranks to become a regular before she finished her first Groupon. Jenn and her husband are expecting their first child in February and are planning to be surprised by the babies gender. Regardless of whether they have a boy or girl we know the Migliaccio family is in for a fighter, Jenn has been feeling the baby throwing hooks, jabs and crosses in both Piloxing and Box and Flow for weeks now! Thanks for sharing your story, Jenn, we can't wait to welcome your little boxer to the SP family.
Here at Studio Poise we know pregnancy is an exciting and overwhelming time in any woman's life. We've noticed several of our moms-to-be hustling hard in classes and we wanted to showcase a few of them during their pregnancies. Kristina Burkhardt has been calling SP home since spring of 2015 and we're so glad her healthy pregnancy has been spent here at the studio! We'll be following up with Kristina after her little girl arrives to see how staying healthy during her journey to motherhood helps with labor and delivery. Thanks for sharing your story, Kristina, we can't wait to welcome your little girl to the Studio Poise community!
