On Friday 11/25/16, we will be offering two donation-based gratitude Barre Bliss classes. This provides all of the amazing things we love about our signature Barre Bliss classes with the added bonus of donating to benefit a local charity. Class is free for all to attend and please bring a cash donation with you. Please register online, as class size is limited. You are welcome to donate at either studio if you can’t attend.

Friday 11/25 at 9:30am – Barre Bliss at St. Louis Park with Lisa. Donations will go to St. Louis Park Emergency Program (S.T.E.P.), which is a community food shelf and social service agency.

Friday 11/25 at 12pm – Barre Bliss in Uptown with Lisa. Donations will go to The Good Grocer on Lake Street, which is a grocery store, open to the public, that provides good quality foods to families in need.

Giving back to our community is a very important part of Barre Bliss, and we invite you to join us in that mission.

How to Avoid Hwy 7 closure traffic

Due to the Hwy 100 construction project, Hwy 7 is closed between Woodale Ave and Belt Line Blvd. until Fall of 2016. This has caused a significant amount of added traffic in front of the Saint Louis Park studio since the detour uses 36th Street.

Here are two routes that can potentially save you a lot of commute time to our Saint Louis Park studio.

If you are coming from the West:

Avoid taking Hwy 7 past Blake Rd. It’s best to come East on Excelsior Blvd. which starts to get congested past Louisiana Ave during busy times of the day. Take a left on Louisiana to avoid waiting in traffic and go to Oxford Street and take a right. Oxford will wind around, just follow main road through warehouses by taking a right on Edgewood Ave and then a left on Cambridge Street. Go to Alabama and take a left. This will take you to 36th street where you want to take a right. Studio is just 2 blocks down on the left. Most of the heavy traffic will be avoided by doing this little sneak route through the warehouse district in SLP. See map below for route.

Map to studio from west

If you are coming from the East:

Take Excelsior Blvd just West of Lake Calhoun, do not take Lake Street to Hwy 7. There will be a good amount of congestion as you get closer to Hwy 100. But this is still the least traffic way to go during the busy hours of the day. Continue on Excelsior Blvd past Monterey Drive and continue over Hwy 100. Once over Hwy 100 go a few blocks to Alabama Ave and take a right. Take Alabama Ave all the way to 36th Street and take a right. Studio is 2 blocks down on the left. See map below for route.

East Route to Studio

Help us achieve our goal!

Campaign Ends this Thursday June, 25th.

This January marks 4 years of Barre Bliss. We have made some big leaps and bounds this year and need a boost to keep growing and sustaining what we have built. Instead of going to a bank for a loan, we wanted to explore the possibility of community and investment from the people. With our expansion, costs have tripled and business has slowed for many reasons. If you believe in homegrown, small business ventures like Barre Bliss, please take a moment to share this and contribute anyway you can. XO Mia.
