Kailey was born and raised in RVA where she fell in love with dancing at a young age, trying out every style of dance she could: hip hop, ballet, modern, jazz, pointe, and even aerial silks. After joining a gym, she realized that teaching group exercise was the perfect combination of her favorite things: being active and helping others. She became certified in Zumba, and began teaching at the age of 18. Her love of group exercise grew and she soon discovered that Barre was that extra dance-related exercise she had been looking for. So, she added it to her resume along with an AFAA Group Exercise certification. She loves that no matter how many times you have done a Barre class; you can still get your muscles shaking! When not teaching exercise, you can find Kailey exploring downtown RVA, teaching art to children, volunteering at her church, and finishing up her last year of her bachelor’s degree from Liberty University in psychology and crisis counseling. She is so excited to be a part of the Hot Yoga Barre team and is ready to encourage others to raise the Bar(re) and exceed their expectations of themselves!
