Why choose BarreConcept® as my barre certification?

BarreConcept is the first barre certification course in the world to gain international accreditation, so our instructors are recognised in the major Western countries. Our BarreConcept workout manual is the first Barre training manual to be published in the world and Emma has produced some of the world’s top selling barre DVD’s.

Most barre methods have originated from the Lotte Berk Method and BarreConcept is no different. However, using today’s knowledge of biomechanics and physiology, the method has been modernised and brought into the 21st century and set to high energy dance music. Fitness expert and creator of BarreConcept, Emma Newham, has over 25 years experience in the exercise industry. She has been delivering instructor training in the Pilates method for over a decade, having written several accredited courses and published 8 Pilates instructor training manuals.

The combined experience in delivering Pilates teacher training courses, with Emma’s own instructor qualifications, along with her background history of classical ballet training makes her the perfect master trainer to inspire others to deliver this method. You are only as good as your own teacher, so choose one with comprehensive, professional knowledge, an existing track record in delivering successful training and industry experience.

What Do Others Think?

"I have loved the course from start to finish. "

"The help and support from you throughout has been invaluable and I’m really looking forward to starting my own classes."

Ms D Lewis

"Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates"

"Emma has helped me recently in so many ways. I have completed her detailed on line courses and feel competent to teach the techniques and exercises straight away after the brilliant videos and instructions. Having had a few issues myself over my teaching and my own business, and loosing some confidence, I contacted Emma who spent time out of her crazy schedule emailing me giving me support and advice which helped so much. Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates and made me believe in myself again. Thank you so much. "

Ms M Tibbetts

"The course content was invaluable to my teaching repertoire"

"I just finished a course with Emma in Dublin on BarreConcept and I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed a course so much. The course content was invaluable to my teaching repertoire, the days were filled with original and unique teaching methods, which were delivered in a fun, easy to understand manner and Emma was professional and empathetic to every one of us in training."

Ms A Vard

"The videos are brilliantly demonstrated and I've gained so much knowledge”

"Just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed the Pilates Mat course. The videos are brilliantly demonstrated and I've gained so much knowledge about teaching from you. I'm a sports massage therapist so teaching is not a skill I've needed to develop and I've been a bit apprehensive about it, but your style of teaching has been a huge encouragement. "

Ms G Wyeth

"Her dedication, knowledge and ability is second to none"

"Emma is a brilliant, articulate, passionate teacher who really cares about the people she teaches. Her dedication, knowledge and ability is second to none. The course I did with Emma was fun, exciting and full of new ways to teach which benefitted me greatly"

Ms C Smith

"When I have a doubt she promptly answer to my question"

"Emma Newham is someone who truly enjoys and has a passion for sharing her Pilates knowledge. She has professionality, enthusiasm and care for your well being and also for your preparation as teacher. She is my BarreConcept teacher and she is so friendly and helpful even if long distance take us apart as I'm from Rome, Italy. When I have a doubt she promptly answer to my question. She is my best teacher."
