Ruby I Barre


Ruby is a California girl who moved to Richmond in 2018 because the weather was way better (just kidding – it was because of her husband’s job). She grew up in Santa Monica, and graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in education. She loves shopping, decorating, cooking, and snuggling up for a movie and a sweet-treat on Friday nights.

Ruby began her fitness journey in 2012 as a young yogi hungry for knowledge about health and well-being. She completed a 200 hour YTT training at Studio Surya Yoga in Venice Beach, CA, which deepened her practice and love for exercise and self-care. When she moved to Richmond she was on a mission to find the best yoga studio, which is when she came across HYB. It only took 1 yoga class and 1 barre class at HYB for Ruby to discontinue her studio search. She had found her fitness home away from home. Ruby was so inspired by the positive environment and amazing teachers at HYB that she wanted to be a part of the team. She completed her Barre Teacher Training, and is so excited to see you on the mat!

Ruby believes that workouts should be as fun as they are challenging. Bopping along to a great playlist and working towards the shake are what motivate her. When she’s not pulsing and tucking Ruby can be found being a boss-lady producing commercials for a wide range of clientele in Richmond and Los Angeles.
