ABOUT US

NARE B

Barressential was founded in 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka as a first of its kind Barre & Pilates boutique fitness offering. 

As a result of her keen interest in physiology and anatomy plus a strong belief that engaging in exercise should lead to less injuries and more healing, Nare was immediately drawn to the Barre method whilst living in London. After moving back to Colombo in 2016, Nare noticed a need in the market for a low impact, rehabilitating yet effective fitness method that creates lean yet strong physiques. 

Taking a step away from her career in investment management, Nare moved into the field of entrepreneurship to bring to Colombo two addictive, safe and effective forms of exercise that is taking the world by storm. 

Nare is a certified IBBFA Barre instructor and has completed Mat, Reformer & Trapeze Table training with the esteemed Balanced Body institute. She is also trained in Specialist Pre/Post Rehabilitation Pilates as well as Pre/Post Natal Pilates.

Nare holds a BSc in Neuroscience from King's College London and a Masters in Finance from the University of Cambridge.

“INHALE CONFIDENCE, EXHALE DOUBT.” 

Coming from years of being a dancer, Naamini was Barressential client because the method resonated very well with her.

Be ready to challenge your body and mind and feel muscles you never knew existed! Join her for an experience with lots of positive energy and laughs where you get pulsing and tucking to some great tunes in class!
