Inspiration of the Month: Colette Barry

Colette Barry

We are proud have Colette Barry be our inspiration this month!

She is the Author of  “Wall Yoga the Art of Centering”.  With twenty-five years in fitness and rehabilitation Colette developed a system of yoga exercises utilizing the wall as an anchor to enhance proper alignment.  “Wall Yoga the Art of Centering” is a five weeks program that is designed to help one obtains overall body fitness and balance.

Colette has an online membership website called Healthy Fit Studio, with three online fitness programs. Wall Yoga, Barry Method and Tough Men Tough Yoga.

Colette is also the spokesperson for the Total Trainer tm by Bayou Fitness and will soon be launching her first two videos called “Barry Method Core Work” and “Barry Method Strength and Conditioning”.

Colette’s mantra is “I communicate with muscles”. Her technique cultivates the ability to connect the mind and body through visual cues with proper alignment. The Barry Method eschews muscle isolation techniques for a more dynamic concept of functional training, which is attainable (for just about anyone) with maximum efficiency by using gravity resistance on the Total Trainer glide board.

Colette has been able to develop specific exercises that allow for unrestricted movement. These protocols unlike free weights, lengthens and strengthen muscles relieving pressure from the joints and ligaments enhancing overall joint mobility and balance.

Colette’s functional concept allows the body to recruit multiple muscle groups in each exercise recreating movements of real life activities. This concept creates functional stability increasing flexibility and strength while restoring and recreating body composition and integrity.

What you end up with are “smart” balanced muscles that resist injury with a bottom line to allow people to regain fitness and return to sports recreational activities and work activity with increased performance and lower risk of injury.

Seize the pose, feel the results.

What she thinks about Mika Yoga Wear: Colette loves wearing Mika at all her video and photo shoots for Bayou Fitness.

Her Barry Method Team also favors Mika yoga wear because of the flattering lines and feminine colors.

"I can be assured that I look my best, when I'm in my Mika wear" says Colette. "Front or back, we look very chic".

Thanks Mika, we love you!
