I am a huge fan of this small, family run studio. I have attended (and continue to attend) a variety of classes from yoga to self defense training. I have also received personal training from Ash (one of the owners) for over a year now. The class sizes are ideal (not too big) and there are many to choose from. The attention and care of instructors is notable. The owners take pride in their business and take care of their clients. The studio is clean, and well run. I like that I can book classes and appointments online.

I have been an athlete all my life and have been through various training regimens and programs. Nothing has been as effective as personal training with Mindy. She started me off slowly with core and balance and thoughtfully worked me up to the point where I am strength training and making huge strides. I am doing things I couldn’t do in my 20s. This is the first time ever that I have embarked on a training program where I have remained injury free throughout and not constantly sore (in a bad way). Mindy is very knowledgeable. She gets to know what you need and tailors a program for you. In addition to getting fit, I’ve been able to change my body composition drastically. And, she’s no bullshit. I highly recommend her personal training if you are serious about making meaningful and long term changes to your body and health.

I have been a client of BAR for almost 4 years and have nothing but positive things to say about this place! The private training services are super professional and really helped me get back in shape after my last pregnancy.The classes are terrific, I mostly have taken the Muy Thai/Boot Camp classes with Ash Berla and found they were a super efficient and fun way to stay in shape. BAR is a neighborhood gem and absolutely worth a visit!”

The space is nice and clean, the location is perfect — especially for Oakland/Alameda residents, parking is always easy, the owners are awesome... if you’re looking for a spot for conditioning classes — yoga, Pilates, etc — I highly recommend giving Brooklyn Academy Roots a try. They always have good deals available online! I have been taking yoga classes here for about a year and a half; I have taken classes with several different instructors and every one of them has been excellent...Check this place out, you won’t regret it!”
