MEET JES BUSCH, Studio Owner
Jes was born and raised in Kelowna, BC. She spent her childhood and adolescent years outdoors, at a gym, or in a studio, studying all different dance, sport, and movement techniques. Once graduating high school, Jes moved West to study at a private Film and Acting College in Victoria, as well as obtained a Fashion and Creative Arts Diploma at the John Casablanca Institute in Vancouver. Post school, she moved to New York for an internship in fashion. While on one of her trips to the East Coast, Jes fell in love with yoga as a new form of movement in her body, and became a certified yoga instructor under Dana Flynn of Laughing Lotus NYC. As Jes transitioned her career path into becoming a full-time yoga and fitness instructor, she began taking classes at Barre Fitness Yaletown. The studio and classes felt like an instant fit, and the perfect combination of her passion for fitness, community, music, and dance. After 3 years as an instructor at both Northshore and Yaletown, Jes, along with her husband Chris, is beyond excited and grateful to now be opening the 5th Barre Fitness location in Gastown.
