Form Barre & Yoga
FORM Barre & Yoga is a new pop-up studio located in Amsterdam Oud-West - right behind the popular Kinkerstraat. The studio space is on the third floor of an iconic monumental building, that now serves as cultural centre for local artists. The palpable history of the building gives the studio space a unique vibe - with its large windows providing lots of natural light into the wide and spacious room. At FORM we offer creative Barre and Yoga classes, that will leave you feeling stronger than ever!
Nothing but love for Italy. She runs an intense but also fun class. You always get challenged to try new things and encouraged to keep smiling even if you don’t get it quite yet.
The class was very good, Julie paid attention to proper form and gave a very well rounded class. It was my first barre class and it was tough on the muscles but easy to follow the instructions.
About the Team
The owner of FORM is Italy Padilla - born and raised in Seattle - who moved to Amsterdam 3 years ago with the goal to open her own Barre & Yoga studio. She has danced professionally for multiple contemporary ballet companies - but when she started doing barre as a workout, she instantly felt a newfound passion to pursue a career as a teacher and studio owner. She learned that a combination of Barre & Yoga was the perfect balance between gaining strength and flexibility in a safe and sustainable way. After moving to Amsterdam, she quickly became well-known for her energetic teaching style and creative sequencing - aiming to get you to sweat!
