Episode 62: Sadie Lincoln: Founding Barre3, Growth, Consciousness, and Dropping Out

Listen on iTunes and Subscribe!

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!

  • I just loved this interview. I have loved all of your interviews, and you guys are so wonderful and generous

    I am a yoga teacher and an artist. I just downloaded your book via audible, and am so excited to listen to it. I am listening to Net worth to self worth, because of you, and I am taking in everything you guys offer.

    It is time for me to take my work to a higher level. I see how important it is to balance the practical and logical with the intuitive creative.

    This beautiful woman sums it up, it is all about relationship. The whole interview was very inspiring, and what clicked for me most was when she was talking about food and relationship, and later brought it back t relationship.

    I have been in recovery from eating disorders and alcohol, for years, and yet when it comes to relationship and allowing love to penetrate all areas of my life.

    Money a love story appeals to that, and while I can’t wait to listen to and work with it, I realize that I am still realizing that I am worthy enough to have a loving relationship with money, food and people ( a man in particular) for that matter.

    I appreciate how you and Mike demonstrate how to have a loving connected and constantly expanding relationship/partnership. OMG, I aim for such a possibility.

    Sadie embodies my personal philosophy when it comes to teaching. I could feel her integrity as she shared her story and vision. So beautiful.

    I used to think money was my problem, and that if I just had more flow, then I would have freedom, but as I mentioned before, I now see it is about my perspective about relationship, not just to money, but to everything and everyone, especially myself and spirit.

    On a practical level, I am at the place financially, where tracking my spending is about all I can do, Next month, I decided to track spending and income, and I plan to keep growing. On an intuitive level, I will continue to work on my mindset, and heart space around having and invite in healing around my old ideas and beliefs.

    I am willing to stay awake to how I feel and what I think, so that I can actually grow, and be of true service to others. Money fears wreck my ability to truly connect with others, and keep me very very small.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I can’t wait to hear more from you guys.

    I have so much to say here, but I see how

    • This is a update, I am listening to your book now, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it,

      You are so sweet and genuine Kate!!!! Thank you for being gentle and for reminding e to stay present and openminded to hearing things I think I know. I am a self improvement and spiritual expansion junkie too.

      The truth is, I have not been able to employ those teachings, but now I am receptive,and I have a new hope and expectation for change.

      Transformation.

      I may be updating again, because I feel so inspired and appreciative!!

      You fucking rock!!!
