Tuck Barre & Yoga: A Comprehensive Yoga and Barre Experience in University City

Tuck Barre & Yoga, a renowned yoga and barre studio, is expanding its presence to University City in mid-April. The studio, whose flagship location is situated in Point Breeze, will introduce a diverse range of classes encompassing three distinct yoga disciplines, a variety of barre classes, and both meditation and stretching sessions at its newly established facility on 34th and Lancaster streets.

The studio’s mission, as articulated by Callie Kim, the studio’s proprietress and a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, is to offer a comprehensive experience that caters to the diverse needs of its clientele: “We offer all three yoga disciplines because they complement each other harmoniously.”

Yoga Offerings

  • Yin Yoga: A meditative and passive practice, characterized by prolonged holds in supported postures, fostering relaxation and inner tranquility.
  • Vinyasa Yoga: A dynamic and fluid style, synchronizing movement with breath, promoting cardiovascular health and enhanced flexibility.
  • Buti Yoga: A vigorous and eclectic fusion of yoga, plyometrics, and dance, accompanied by energetic music, challenging both strength and endurance.

Barre Classes

  • Traditional Barre: A classic and effective class that utilizes a ballet barre, targeting muscle groups and improving posture.
  • Barreshred: A hybrid class combining traditional barre with high-intensity interval training (HIIT), amplifying calorie expenditure and elevating heart rate.

Pricing and Perks

Tuck Barre & Yoga stands out in its pricing structure, offering flexibility and affordability, particularly for students.

  • No Cancellation Fees: Eliminating the financial penalty for late cancellations, so long as the cancellation does not prevent another individual from joining the class.
  • Student Discounts: Catering to the needs of Penn students, the studio provides reduced rates:
    • $18 for a single drop-in class
    • $139 or $129 for an unlimited monthly membership (with a $10 differential between a single month and recurring payment)
    • $119 for yoga-only unlimited membership

Kim emphasizes the studio’s commitment to cultivating a welcoming and supportive environment, treating its patrons as valued friends. The aim is to foster a thriving community within West Philadelphia, and Kim expresses confidence that Penn students will play a pivotal role in shaping this vibrant space.
