Amity Whalen, founder of Carolina Barre & Core, opened the doors to the Charlotte based studio on July 15, 2013. It is here that the foundation was laid for a challenging fitness studio that was deeply rooted in creating community and support. This concept was carried over to the North Raleigh Studio at Lafayette Village in 2016 when Amity and her family relocated for her husband Duncan’s job. A third studio was born in 2018 in a second Raleigh location, inside the belt line (ITB) at Glenwood Village. Well versed in the fitness world, Amity has been teaching since 1995
including cycle, bootcamp, pilates, yoga (200 E-RYT) and barre. She has been mentored by Tyler Ingram, of Exhale Spa, as well as Fred Devito and Elisabeth Halfapp (founders of Exhale and formerly of the Lotte Berk Method).
Amity is known for having a keen eye for alignment and an incredible handson approach. Her passion for teaching
is undeniable and she will make even the most apprehensive guest feel comfortable and welcome.
