Barbara Mendez

Barre Instructor

Barbara was born in Nuevo Laredo but has called Laredo her home for 38 years.  She has a wonderful husband who supports her many adventures and 2 amazing boys that teach her something new about life everyday. At the age of 19, she was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to study Skin Care & Massage Therapy in Barcelona, Spain. Today, she operates a home spa business that provides beauty care to some very amazing women.

Health & fitness has always played an important role in her everyday life. She is an avid runner, a yogi, fusion barre instructor, track and cross country coach at Mary Help of Christians School and her newest addiction is tennis!   She is part of the Runstrong Laredo family and now calls Casa Yoga her second home. She was introduced to hot yoga by her best friend Andrea Solis (aka running, yoga, tennis partner). Barbara immediately became addicted to her yoga practice and knew she had found something she would continue for a lifetime. Soon after, she was invited by Alejandra to become a fusion barre instructor, and didn’t have to think twice- it was a definite YES!  She is very grateful to Alejandra and Alli for teaching her and guiding her through the training. She continues to learn from them every single day. She loves what she does. Being surrounded by incredible people, full of energy and good vibes- what else can she ask for?
