Bodhi is a simple and elegant suspension system, similar to TRX. This class is unique to The Pilates Barre as it includes the spring work from the Pilates protocol while the Tower also serves as an anchor for the ropes, handles and foot loops of the Bodhi system. This class starts with a music driven cardio warm-up and moves into chest, shoulder, back, bicep and tricep work. Standing leg work is done while holding onto the Bodhi handles, while planks, push-ups and side planks are performed while feet are suspended in Bodhi loops, both providing an added element of balance and challenge. Movement sequences include reaching limbs to the front, back or side of the body, moving the center of the body into an unstable lean, and pulling the weight of the body against the force of the ropes. The deep core is engaged throughout the class to stabilize the spine while challenging the center of gravity for an amazing full body workout that creates amazing new levels of strength and flexibility!
