In 2014 Jeanvieve took her first barre class at Fluid Power Fitness with owner Cathleen Deutscher and hasn’t looked back since. At 31, with a one and half year old daughter, she had been looking for a way to drop some weight and tone up. She observed changes quickly, and after regular classes, she experienced not only a noticeable body transformation, but a significant relief of the pain that had remained with her since being in a car accident at 14 years old. Persistent aches and pains were quickly replaced with a surprising increase in strength and flexibility. When Cathleen presented the opportunity to be mentored by her through the process of becoming a barre teacher, Jeanvieve jumped at the chance. She has since completed the Exhale Barre Teacher Training Certification program in January 2017, and feels privileged and excited to be teaching barre in her home town, and hopes to help students achieve the vitality and benefits that every class provides in a supportive and inspirational environment. In addition to teaching barre, Jeanvieve works for Stony Brook University in the department of Family, Population Health and Preventive Medicine in administration. When she’s not at the barre or at work, she can be found spending time with her husband and daughter at home or enjoying the many beautiful things the town of Sayville has to offer.
