Founder & CEO

As founder and creator of Barre Body, Emma Seibold has cemented her place as one of Australia’s leading health and wellness professionals. Having launched the brand with a single studio in Melbourne in 2012, Emma has led Barre Body through continual growth and transition, to become a global force in the industry.

Following a 10-year career in corporate marketing, Emma followed her passion for health and wellbeing, undertaking trainings at schools in New York, India, Sydney, Melbourne and Byron Bay, which set her up as a certified yoga teacher, STOTT Pilates certified instructor and holistic health & wellness coach. After giving birth to her first child, Emma discovered the mind and body benefits of barre, which led to the creation of Barre Body.

Today, Barre Body is about so much more than studio workouts, with international teacher training programs (online and in person at Barre Body’s training hub in Byron Bay), the Bende suite of studios, the online fitness subscription platform Barre Body Online, and a host of additional verticals. Over the past decade, Barre Body has taught thousands of Barre, Pilates and Reformer teachers, has equipped new studio owners, and has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of movement lovers across the globe.

Emma is regularly called upon as an expert in the industry. She has been featured in the likes of Vogue, Marie Claire and Women’s Health, hosts a podcast “Nice Bossy”, and is a highly motivational speaker and mentor for like minded women.

With a team based all over Australia, Emma continues to lead with a love that flows through every touch point of the business. As a relentlessly passionate, powerful female founder, Emma is a driving force in the industry.
