Studio owners Ashley Watt and Melissa White have both shared a passion for physical movement and the desire to help others. Ashley fell in love with sports at a young age. In college, she explored the field of nursing since she has always had a passion to help others. She received her Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Family Studies from Stamford University. After college, she found “barre” related classes and immediately connected with the mind over body concept. When the opportunity came about to open with business partner Melissa, Ashley jumped at the chance.
Melissa received a B.S. in Communication Disorders from the University of Kentucky and an M.S in Communication Disorders from Appalachian State University. She spent 8 years as a Pediatric Speech and Language Pathologist both in the school systems and private practice, and still holds her national certiﬁcation. Melissa also coached competitive cheerleading, of all ages, for almost ten years in North Carolina and Georgia. Teaching ﬁtness has been a part of Melissaʼs life since 1995. Once she discovered Bar Method, there was no looking back.
Ashley and Melissa have been able to make their dream a reality. Both love being able to teach Bar Method because they feel it makes such a positive difference in the lives of others and it creates such a supportive and loving community. They both feel beyond blessed to be able to be apart of Bar Method Atlanta and are very grateful to have this amazing opportunity.
