Lili Merhavi-Surkin was first introduced to the word “Cardio Barre” while working as a pre- school teacher during the pursuit of her masters in Psychology. A number of moms would drop off their children in a hurry to make it to what they referred to as their “addictive workout” that kept them sane for the rest of the day! After seeing what great shape these mothers were in due to this mystery workout, Lili knew she had to check it out for herself. After taking a Cardio Barre class, Lili was hooked! She knew that it was an amazing experience worth sharing. Lili is now the proud owner of the Thousand Oaks Cardio Barre and welcomes you to experience the joy for yourself!
Currently, she continues her journey as a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern working toward her licensure. As a therapist, Lili understands the importance of taking care of people’s mental and physical well being. The connection between mind and body is essential in preserving a balanced and a healthy quality of life. Lili found that CARDIO BARRE® bridged the balance between her mental and physical well being, which continues to improve her daily quality of life!
With the support of her husband, Tony Surkin and the inspiration of their child, Sivan Surkin , she began another journey as the owner of a CARDIO BARRE® studio in Thousand Oaks.
