Our Story

This brand was built with love for a community that's more than just a fitness studio.


Where it all began...

The Barre + Yoga Experience

The Barre + Yoga Experience is a New England based Barre + Yoga studio established in 2018. BYE was created to form a community of individuals with like-minded interests in movement and wellness. Over the years, we have built a strong community where we've laughed and cried together and formed life long friendships.

Retreat Experience was created to give students the chance to experience once in a life-time opportunities and create life-long memories doing the things they love most. Life should be lived, and it should be lived doing the things we love.

About the Founder

Hi There! I'm Angela - owner and founder of The Barre + Yoga Experience and now, The Retreat Experience and I'm so happy you're here! I'm a mom of two little ones - and another on the way, so life is crazy! Wellness and movement - especially Barre + Yoga play a vital role in my health - mentally and physically and I am so grateful to share it with so many in my community. Traveling the world is one of my favorite hobbies which is what inspired RE. Bringing together two things I love so much and sharing it with you is a dream! Thanks for being here and dreaming big with me!
