Barre & Brunch



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

As a treat for Mother’s Day, Jen Ashcraft-Hays, owner of Barre 11, hosted mothers and their daughters, for a fun Saturday morning Foundations level Barre 11 class (with a little extra pampering), followed by brunch. Teresa Tilley, Jen’s mother, came from Tullahoma to assist with the brunch, ever supportive of her daughter. What better way for mothers and their daughters to bond on the Saturday before Mother’s Day?

Barre 11 has Barre, yoga, and Tabata boot camp classes. According to Jen: “this is where fitness becomes intentional movement and mindfulness becomes a way of life, where intimacy, achievement and personal attention provide a sense of safety and where workouts are for celebrating the body, not for punishing it.”
