Kara Kokorelis was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Starting gymnastics at a very young age she spent most of her life training in the gym. Kara developed into a highly competitive gymnast throughout her teen years. Beyond her intense training in the gym Kara also had extensive training in many different dance techniques. Her long hours of training in the gym were rewarded by winning many State and National competitions. Throughout her career Kara learned many life lessons including drive, determination, dedication, perseverance and the importance of a great attitude.
These attributes gave her the skills required to develop a strong business career in sales. She worked in advertising sales for many years where she excelled. Kara went on to create her own Direct Mail Marketing Company and became the leader in the industry. Always maintaining her passion for fitness and health Kara found herself immersed in yoga and in 2009 did a teacher training course in Ashtanga Vinyasa with the late Larry Schultz of It's Yoga in San Francisco. Then after discovering Pure Barre for the first time she was instantly hooked. Her life has been a pursuit to combine her passion and all of her training into one dynamic business which is what she has found in Pure Barre. "Pure Barre is the ultimate all over body and mind workout that combines everything I love…yoga, pilates, strength training and dance techniques all into one amazing workout. Set to awesome music and moving at a pace that gives me the cardio workout as well." She looks forward to creating an environment to share Pure Barre with others and a community where not only she can help others achieve their ultimate fitness goals but where together we can all help each other.
