Niki is the Owner/Founder and a Master Trainer at Barre Life Fitness Studio. With over 15 years of Ballet and Contemporary Dance Training, she wanted to develop her own barre method with a focus on the ballet conditioning that she and her instructors were essentially trained in. Aside from her many fitness certifications, Niki is certified in the Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) Conditioning for young dancers and will be heading up this division within our studio. All of her disciplines are a great compliment to her love of dance. Her overall mission was to bring the barre method as well as a new take on Recreational dance and conditioning for our kids here in Oakville.
