Andrea Lucas is the founder of Barre & Soul, a barre and yoga studio with five locations in the Boston area, as well as an athletic-wear clothing brand. Barre & Soul started in a 700-square foot space that where she could barely afford to rent. The company was founded with grit, willpower, copious amounts of caffeine, and a desire to change women’s lives—helping them to build confidence and strength. Since opening day, Barre & Soul has grown into a thriving business with 184 classes per week, a team of about 85 employees, a fitness clothing line, annual retreats in the Caribbean, and a loyal fan base that includes over 12,000 Barre & Soul newsletter subscribers. In addition to running Barre & Soul, Lucas is also the mom of two kids, a feminist, and a writer who covers topics like gender equality, domestic violence, women’s rights, and women’s empowerment. I’ve been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, HuffPost, and xoJane. She has a BA in Women’s Studies from Lesley University. studied circus yoga and aerial yoga, and spent some time performing in a burlesque troupe. She is known in Boston—and online—as a speaker, writer, and role model who is determined to help women realize their potential. You can find her online at AndreaIsabelleLucas.com and BarreSoul.com
