Balanced Body brings the precision and movement principles of Pilates to suspension training with the Bodhi. Taking the body out of alignment with gravity fires the core stability muscles and develops integrated, whole body strength and dynamic flexibility. Bodhi offers 4 points of suspension to maximize stability training and proprioception while providing many options for creativity. Learn the essential Bodhi exercises and how to create balanced class sequences using Balanced Body’s unique track system. Course includes:
- Detailed manual and instructor training video support
- Introduction to the Balanced Body Movement Principles to strengthen your teaching
- The Balanced Body Track System to help you create classes quickly and easily
- Progressions, regressions and modifications to make suspension training useful for everyone
Bodhi is the ideal complement to a Pilates or personal training practice adding standing, balance and stability elements that bodies respond to and enjoy. Bodhi instructor training provides instructors with everything needed to teach a variety of formats from small group personal training to circuit training to private sessions. Reignite your studio and excite your clients with Bodhi Ropes!
