Trish Bianco is the babe behind the best maui barre studio. located right in paia, you’ll see all the island chicas (and a few brave men!) riding their cruisers with yoga mats, ready to rock their 1-hour workout before surfing or heading to work. I spend a lot of time sitting, so these classes are pretty much my saving grace. I never thought I would look forward to working out this much – for real. infusion barre and paia bay coffee combo is my ideal morning! keepin’ me creative, healthy, and motivated.
what brought you to open infusion?
I wanted to open Infusion on Maui to offer something different for the island. There is a lot of yoga on Maui but I wanted to bring my style of Fitness of the Body and Mind together.
favorite part about running a barre studio?
Definitely seeing the transformation in my students, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. There is this palpable shift in the room when people break out of their comfort zones and truly step into a new level of Being.
what makes your method different?
Barre Fusion is a trademarked class that is my personal expression of my love of fitness, dance, and yoga over instructing for almost 20 years. I have developed a format that is accessible to the most novice student and still challenging for athletes at a professional level.
what’s your favorite to workout in?
Olympia Activewear – it is great style and extremely functional.
what do you do on your days off?
My days of are spent at the beach! I love being in and around the ocean. Stand-Up Paddleboarding is one of my favorite things to do on Maui, especially with our clear water and marine life. When I am not at the beach, I love exploring Maui’s lush hikes and waterfalls. I spend a lot of time on my playlists and I love walking the beach creating motivating music to keep class fun and inspiring.
