MEET JEN VARNEY, Barre Fitness Port Moody Studio Owner
Jennifer was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and has been performing and teaching professionally for over 15 years. She has had 20 years of extensive training in many dance styles including Jazz, Tap & Ballet. After many years traveling abroad as a professional dancer, Jennifer settled back into her hometown roots and began her teaching career as a dance instructor at various competitive studios in the lower mainland.
Not only is Jen a well trained dancer and respected instructor, she is an avid fitness enthusiast and advocate. She started as a client at Barre Fitness in Yaletown & North Van and it wasn’t long before she realized that Barre Fitness meant more to her than the exceptional workout it offered. The Barre community is something that resonated with Jen and she new she had to be a part of this community in a big way. The technique behind the workout combines Jen’s love for both dance and fitness and it was a “no-brainer” to her that she would be the third franchisee owner.
Along with her Husband, Jen has two beautiful young girls that you can catch dancing up a storm at the new Port Moody studio! Jennifer is beyond thrilled to bring Barre Fitness to the Tri-City area and she cannot wait to inspire you to live a happier, healthier life…one plie at a time!
Jen is teaching a series of Barre Fitness classes on our IGTV each Monday morning starting May 11th.

Hi! I'm Nicole. Supported Soul was created during my battle with postpartum depression. Spending time on my mat helped me reconnect with my soul.My hope is that I can motivate people to take time to focus on their physical + mental health by sharing my passion for yoga as well as offering beautiful products to support their practice.
I spent 15 years in the fashion industry- attained a Fashion Merchandise diploma, worked in a wholesale agency, and traveled globally viewing the world’s best fashion. This experience combined with numerous years of dance training + practicing yoga has cultivated my love for all things beautiful and creative.
Having earned a BSc in Nutritional Science from the University of British Columbia, I also take a science-based approach to a holistic lifestyle and my family's diet. I love learning about health + nutrition and sharing helpful information and simple recipes with my followers.
Now I am actively involved in my local fitness community and participate in all kinds of classes like: barre, Pilates, spin, vinyasa yoga, hot yoga, and Bikram.
Supported Soul's strategic plan resides in Port Moody, British Columbia, but to provide the best products and designs, I have carefully engaged a network of artists and producers from around the world. Currently I am working with consultants and designers from: USA, United Kingdom, Dubai, Australia, China, and Canada.
It’s important to me that our products are ethically sourced + sustainable. Our Supreme All-In-One yoga mats are machine washable, recyclable, biodegradable, and contain no toxins or chemicals. I’m also passionate about supporting my local community. I work with talented artists to create our vibrant designs, and promote + collaborate with other local brands.
Ongoing market research and close relationships with key product designers and manufacturers has enabled Supported Soul to offer thelatest products;tried, tested and analyzed before being presented to you.
