Lava Barre

Cathryn Marcuse

VBarre Trainer

Cathryn is originally from a small, charming town in Indiana, and moved to D.C. full-time after graduating from Syracuse University in 2007. She took her first-ever barre class in Chicago in 2012 while visiting family, and was instantly hooked. She has been teaching at LavaBarre since July 2013. She loves LavaBarre's athletic approach to barre class, compared to other local studios. If it's not burning, its not working!

Cathryn is the founder and director of The Shape Agency, a boutique public relations and digital communications firm. Cathryn and her husband Josh live in D.C.'s Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

Fun fact someone might not know about you?
I'm one of those people who can't eat cilantro. The struggle is real at Thai restaurants.

Go-to snack after a hard workout?
One of the apples we keep at the front desk! And a juice from JRINK.

Favorite body part to work out?
Thighs, no question! I LIVE for that sneaky thigh intermission in our LavaBarre classes.
