Bodhi Suspension System® Instructor Training

Let gravity accelerate your fitness

Balanced Body brings the precision and movement principles of Pilates to suspension training with the Bodhi Suspension System™. Leaning into the ropes takes the body out of alignment with gravity causing the core stability muscles to fire and developing integrated, whole body strength and flexibility. Bodhi’s four points of suspension maximize strength training and enhance proprioception while providing endless opportunities for creativity.
