The mission of Neighborhood Barre™ is to offer all clients, whether beginner or advanced, a quick and effective way to transform their bodies. The studio will evoke a sense of comfort and encouragement in our clients' quest for improvement, free of judgment and comparison.

Neighborhood Barre™ is owned and operated by Katy Richardson. Katy is a certified yoga instructor and graduated from Samford University with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, Concentrating in Finance, and a secondary degree in Accounting. She has embraced a healthy and active lifestyle since a young age participating in both cheerleading and outdoor sports. Her passion for cheerleading carried over into college where she was a member of the Samford University cheerleading squad for four years. During her college career she began to develop an interest in other non-traditional forms of exercise, including yoga and pilates. She was first introduced to barre-based exercise in 2009 and has pursued her passion for the technique by studying and training in a variety of methods. Having witnessed the change it has made in her own body, she believes in the technique and cannot wait to share the experience with Knoxville.
