Why I chose to train with Boditree…
“I was a Boditree client before taking Risa’s instructor training. As a client, I watched a number of instructors through their apprenticeship and I was always amazed in their development and the quality of their training. Risa’s passion for, depth of knowledge about and extensive training in Pilates make her the ideal choice for instructor training.

Risa’s approach of “teaching the body in front of you” and just not teaching exercises leads to a depth of understanding of the power of Pilates that is unparalleled.”
