Violaine aka “V” is originally from France but has been living as an expat since she was 18. After spending many years working as a veterinary surgeon, she decided to diversify from furry and scaly animals to biped animals by becoming a barre instructor.

She has been practicing barre since moving to Hong Kong, and was immediately hooked on the BarreAmped method and its focus on form and good alignment. Having suffered a serious back injury in 2020, she understands how important it is to keep moving in a safe and sustainable manner.

V has since deepened her knowledge of human anatomy through barre teacher training and loves sharing this knowledge through her classes.

She is a keen hiker, traveler (when borders reopen), baker and loves home workouts.
