Today we bring you a fun and inspiring interview with Sadie Lincoln, the founder of Barre3. With over 125 Barre3 locations around the world, the Barre3 classes combine yoga, Pilates, and a little bit of dance-inspired movement.
In this episode, Sadie opens up about her unconventional childhood being raised in a “village” and why she’s now divorced herself from being a public wellness figure (or “guru”)! You’re going to love the definition she uses for the word “balance,” and she also reveals powerful guidelines you can follow around social media and sharing life’s moments.
Sadie discusses how she and her husband Chris got their amazing business started and the mindset she now has around running a business. A bonus of this episode? Sadie gives an analysis of one of Mike’s dreams and explains how you, too, can interpret your own dreams!
