Barbara Garcia-Bernardo

Besides being vice-president of Get Hip Records and manager of the Cynics, I’m a certified Yoga teacher and I have the same passion for sharing my love of Yoga practice as I’ve had for Music over the last three decades.

I got my RYT 200 training and certification in 2016 at South Hills Power Yoga, a Baron Baptiste Power Yoga affiliated studio in Pittsburgh.

I discovered and began practicing Baptiste style Power Yoga in 2010. For me, it was life changing. I had been searching for an exercise activity that was not only vigorous and focused on my entire body, but also provided a much needed stress relief stemming from running a small company in the tough business of music. I was also interested in something that was individualized, but in a group setting. After trying a couple community yoga classes at the recommendation of a dear friend, I was immediately drawn in and interested in learning more. Eventually I tried hot Power Yoga and I almost passed out in the first class! But I kept going back because I realized how great I was feeling inside and out.

Yoga is a continuous exploration and learning process, with each class being a different experience. This is what inspired me to practice yoga steadily.

After many years of regular classes, attending workshops and going to yoga retreats, I finally decided that training to become an instructor was the obvious next step. I graduated from SHPY 200-hour training in 2016. I had no intention to teach, but just further myself in the practice and share what I have learned with others… and here I am!

I hope I can inspire others to give Yoga a try and connect their minds and bodies for true transformation.

“Doing one of Barbara’s Yoga classes is always a good decision- it always makes me feel better in body and in mind- I can’t wait until the next one! Even hungover, Yoga with Barbara is always the right thing to do!”

– Ruyter Suys

“Taking yoga classes with Barbara has been a true pleasure. She offers classes at variety of fitness levels and keeps it challenging yet accessible to wherever you may be on your yoga journey. The ability to practice with her in person, as well as virtually is much appreciated especially during the pandemic.

Her weekly classes have helped me immensely in both my physical yoga practice and mental/emotional wellbeing. It’s an honor to bask in her yoga knowledge and approach.”

– JoAnn Rizzo

“Yoga is the best way to keep in shape mentally and physically. But for an old rocker like me, making the leap into something new can be difficult. Barbara, who’s also a rocker, understands this and makes it all enjoyable and extremely beneficial. So get off your ass before Father Time bites you in the butt!”

– Blaine Cartwright

“Like Barbara I too am in the music business. Producing and Engineering is not only stressful at times but also hard on your body from long hours in front of a computer. I thought yoga would be a good choice for me both physically and mentally. I started doing yoga with Barbara a few years ago and I am so glad that I did. I love her approach and dedication. I am now a firm believer that yoga is the best way to stay in shape. You’re able to increase your strength and flexibility while relieving stress as well. Thank you Barbara!”
