The story behind our studio and its creator
Pose fitness studios is the fruit and work of its founder, Sarah Celia Partington. A former professional dancer and performer, Sarah had a mission in mind; to share her passion for movement and dance and encourage more people to the practice the art form and get involved, no matter their previous experience or fitness levels, through ballet based fitness classes.
Having found the perfect studio space in the Grade II listed building at the historic Royal Ordnance Depot in Weedon Bec, Pose Fitness first opened its doors in June 2018. The only Barre studio in Northamptonshire, Adult ballet and Barre Fitness aside, it also offers the complimentary practices of Yoga, Pilates, circuit training, and more recently Reformer Pilates.
Since then Sarah has launched and her own ballet barre brand,
"Pose Barre". Certified by the EMD (the National Governing Body for Group Exercise) it is now offered as a teacher training programme and qualification for likeminded group instructors. and added complimentary practices such as Yoga, Pilates, circuit training and more recently Reformer Pilates to provide wellness and options for every BODY.
During lockdown, the studio adapted and moved online with success by offering online zoom classes and creating a full library of home workouts available On Demand.
Since returning to the studio, it has added to its repertoire including affiliating with the National Lottery Funded "This Girl Can".
