Benefits of Barre Fusion

Maui resident and owner of INFUSION Barre & Yoga Trish Bianco developed Barre Fusion™ a 55 minute fusion of ballet barre conditioning, Pilates, and yoga stretching to create the fastest most effective way to change your body.  

This class in Paia doesn’t just burn, it torches calories!!!

In just 55 minutes you can achieve a full-body workout concentrating on hips, thighs, seat, abdominals and arms while creating the mental benefits similarly obtained with yoga or meditation. It is a low-impact class, using isometric movements to firm, lengthen, and shape long lean muscles to sculpt your body and clear your head for the day, and possibly long night if you have a little one, ahead!

Inspired by the revolutionary exercise routine developed by the world-famous ballerina, Lotte Berk and her orthopedist, to create the ultimate body transformation, Trish had the opportunity to receive her Barre Teacher Training Certificate from one of Lotte Berks first students Fred Devito and Elisabeth Halfpapp – creators of Exhale Core Fusion. Barre Fusion is a dynamic blend of ballet, yoga, Pilates, and cardio to tighten up what is loose and melt away any unwanted pounds within a matter of ten classes.

Beginners are absolutely welcome to the class and you need zero yoga, dance or fitness background to participate!

In fact, Barre Fusion is one of the fastest ways to regain your pre baby body and a perfect way to continue overall health before during and after pregnancy!

Barre Fusion during pregnancy?

Yes, we love pregnant clients at Infusion and our classes are most definitely suitable during your pregnancy.

We recommend consulting with your doctor giving you permission to exercise, and taking a break in the first trimester. But, if you have been coming to Barre Fusion you may choose to continue classes in the first trimester, being more gentle with your body and avoiding twisting poses that compress the belly. 

Barre Fusion classes are a fantastic way to prepare for labor (fitness + strong legs and gluts are a big help during your contractions and active labor) and help keep your body toned, making it much easier to regain your shape after birth.

We hope you join us on our journey to help you obtain your best mind and body.

Trish Bianco Owner Founder of Infusion Yoga Maui and Creator of Barre Fusion™ Trish’s passion and commitment for fitness began at age of 7 in Jamestown, New York. Before the sun rose each morning she would jump out of bed to workout with the Mickey Mouse Club! Her love of movement and fitness continued to inspire and motivate Trish to explore various methodologies and develop a vast knowledge, strong education and certification in dance, yoga, including vinyasa flow, pilates and Core Fusion. Trish began her extensive yoga training with world renowned yogi, Shanti Gowans in 1998 while living in Burleigh Heads, Australia. At 20 years of age she began teaching yoga and developed a very loyal following. After living and teaching abroad she was ready to return to the United States. Her move to Los Angeles was perfectly timed to be involved in the evolving yoga community. The opportunity to train with Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Saul David Rae and Erich Shiffman were extraordinary experiences while working and teaching at Exhale Center for Sacred Movement, Venice Beach and Exhale Spa Santa Monica, California. In 2006, Trish was again inspired by a new methodology being introduced with Barre classes. She immediately fell in love with the concept that incorporated her love of dance, proper body alignment that tapped her belief in pilates along with the stretching and toning of yoga. No two classes were the same and she found that no matter how many classes she enrolled, she was always challenged reaching a higher level of personal development and goals. After two years of practicing Barre classes, Trish was asked by Exhale management to enroll in their intensive training program for Barre titled Core Fusion. Her training was under the strict leadership of co-founders Exhale Spa and Core Fusion, Fred and Elisabeth DeVito. Their 25 years of Barre development and teaching began with famed Lotte Berk Method in New York which is the gold standard for Barre. Their legacy and philosophy is what continues to inspire a league of Barre enthusiasts. Trish worked with Exhale Spa in Santa Monica, Hot8 Santa Monica and The Palazzo in Los Angeles developing and teaching Barre and Yoga classes until the opportunity to travel further west presented itself. In 2010, Trish’s adventurous spirit brought her to the beautiful island of Maui. Inspired by the lifestyle and extraordinary blessings of living in such a special place she was ready for her next challenge and to give back to her community. She is honored and proud to be the first Barre Studio on Maui and sharing her method in the lovely seaside town of Paia. Her insight and instinct for what has now become the number one fitness methodology in the world is a passion she now shares with her devoted clients. Trish’s Barre Fusion™ Method is the culmination of her exceptional perspective combining all of her trainings in Barre, Yoga, Dance and Pilates exceptionally geared towards the Hawaiian lifestyle (i.e. no thick sticky black socks required). Infusion offers a special environment that has created a unique camaraderie in and out of the studio for her clients. The energy, guidance and motivation Trish delivers in each class continues to raise the bar and support each individual to attain their very personal best. Barre Fusion™ is one of the most effective fitness methods that will truly deliver measurable results with targeted workouts that will sculpt, slim and stretch your entire body. It is safe, proven never stagnate and requires no previous training in Barre, fitness, yoga, or dance, Everyone is truly welcome with the spirt of Aloha!
