BarSculpt is the oldest established barre class in Maine created by Maine native, Leslie Guerin Canto. A trademarked and highly sought after class, BarSculpt has been in Portland, Maine (and throughout the country) since 2006. Through the class’s unique design and the efforts of its highly skilled and qualified instructors, BarSculpt has your safety and wellness in mind when helping you create a balanced body and mind.
BarSculpt classes allow everyBODY to find more ease in movement, coordination and flexibility, while getting a wonderfully crafted workout. BarSculpt is a discipline, not unlike Yoga, but that more specifically targets areas like the seat, abdominals, arms, and thighs. Whether you are an avid exerciser or just looking for a way to get in shape, BarSculpt can work for you.
BarSculpt creator Leslie Guerin Canto began her fitness career in Manhattan while working as a professional actress. In New York, she had the pleasure of studying under Lotte Berk Method founder Lydia Bach. Inspired to teach, she went on to study Pilates and Personal Training and to hold certificates in both. Upon returning to Maine and opening Pure Movement, Leslie began building a method combining the strengths of all three disciplines.
After years of honing BarSculpt, Leslie’s passion is bringing this fitness class to new students and teachers to share its power and grace.
