Challenge your Core!

At Boditree Pilates we want to make sure our clients clearly feel and understand how breath guides the work. By doing so, we enable the body to find the right planes and lines. From an instructional point of view, It’s critical to break down these variations so that the explanation can guide the best result. It is amazing how even our strongest clients are continually challenged by the ingenuity of a Pilates workout.

Boditree Pilates in Kitsilano, Vancouver offers customized workouts so that every client is doing what is appropriate for their body, needs and goals. You will see people of all levels of strength and conditioning working out together, each one doing their own custom program and working towards getting the exact results they are looking for. How is this different from the usual Pilates studios that feature group led programs? At Boditree Pilates every client is challenged to meet their own goals working with both the strengths and weaknesses they bring in. With a customized program, anyone can be challenged, regardless of their starting point. With constant instruction while you workout, you are kept on form and maximize your results.
