Arika is a Senior Master Teacher Trainer for The Barre Code, where she teaches instructors how to teach. While social distancing, she knows it will be difficult to find a new normal schedule of taking care of work and family while also finding time to take care of yourself. Arika is also a mom to five-year-old Griffin and 12-year-old Zeus (yellow lab), as well as a wife to almost 39-year-old computer genius, Luc. Arika started teaching group fitness classes during her freshman year in college as a way to remain active after so many years of playing competitive sports. As a fitness consultant, her goal is to get clients to have a healthy mind, body, and spirit. This is done through educating and appreciating what you can accomplish when your mind and body work together.
