Training Sessions with Aliesa George, PMA-CPT
Private training is recommended for ALL students, but may be required if you have any medical issues, health concerns, or are recovering from an injury or accident. One on one training is an efficient, effective way to customize your workouts and get the personalized attention you need to reach your wellness goals.
One-On-One / Private Training
Private, one-on-one training sessions are the best gift you can give to your body. Work on specific goals you have for health improvement, and let your well-trained Pilates teacher help guide you step-by-step through the process of safe and appropriate exercises working the Pilates system. Your Private training sessions may include Functional Fundamental exercises, Pilates Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac/Tower, Chairs & Barrels, as well as working on bridging the gap between your “fitness” program, and daily life and/or sport activities to help fine-tune your technique, enhance body awareness, and help keep you safe and injury-free.
(Rossiter® Stretching may be incorporated into your sessions, or supplemental 30 minute private sessions can be specifically requested for Rossiter® Stretching. Check with Aliesa to see if this method of fascia release and connective tissue stretching is safe and appropriate for your body.)
Rossiter® Stretching Sessions
Your body was made to move, stretch, be active, healthy, and pain-free! With just a few Rossiter stretching techniques, you can begin to immediately restore the “space” for freedom, looseness, and flexibility for your connective tissue – working towards restoring your tissues to a natural, healthy length.
The Rossiter® Stretching System was developed by Richard Rossiter. Workouts are designed to target specific areas of the body by recognizing that PAIN is information. Having a pain-free, fit, flexible, and mobile body depends on having enough INTERNAL space to function properly. The body’s system of “space” is the connective tissue or fascia. Why is healthy connective tissue important? It connects everything in your body, for form and function. To function well, healthy connective tissue is loose, providing “space” on the inside to benefit the body’s natural ability to communicate with itself for circulation of blood, nerve conduction, and ease of movement.
Stress, immobility, and pain occur when connective tissue gets tight, shortened, thickened, or hard. This can be a result of injury, over-use, non-use, and age. Let’s just say that life involves using our bodies, and we’re not always kind, pay much attention, or listen to what our bodies really need.
Rossiter Stretching sessions are a phenomenal compliment to your Pilates training, (and can benefit you even if you don’t do Pilates.) You will begin to quickly notice shifts and assess improvements during your very first Rossiter session! If you are dealing with aches and pain Rossiter Stretching sessions might make a world of difference. And if you’re lucky enough to be living in a pain-free body, consider using Rossiter Stretching sessions to maintain healthy movement and keep you fit, flexible, pain, and injury-free.
Group Training Programs
BODHI-Buddies / Duets
Want to work out with your best friend, spouse, or other favorite friend? Then the BODHI Buddies program is for you! It is most ideal that Buddies be at a similar level of experience with no serious injuries or health issues, in order to best meet the needs of both of you during your workouts.
Triad Training / Trios
Triad Training is a cost-effective way to share your training time, with friends, family, or other BODHI BODY pals. Triad Training can be scheduled for groups of 3 who are of similar body knowledge and experience.
Group Class (four or more)
At BODHI BODY our group class programs are leveled to insure that you are in a group that is working at a safe and appropriate pace for your level of Pilates skill and experience. Group class means that there are four or more participants (If there are less than four participants pre-registered for a monthly class, remaining participants will have the option to keep the class time as a duet or triad.) All group class participation is by instructor approval only. See current group class schedule for class times.
Please note: Unless otherwise specified on the schedule, group classes will not be designated “Reformer” or “Tower” and only use one specific piece of Pilates equipment, but will be combination classes that may include, Pilates Matwork, Reformer, Tower/Cadillac, Chairs, Barrels, and other equipment in the studio. To add variety to your workouts there will be classes where we “work the system,” target a specific goal or theme, mix things up with a circuit style workout, or add a little cardio into class with jumping on the Reformer, Jacobs Ladder or other aerobic activities.
Intermediate and advanced students may opt to participate in basic, or beginner-intermediate classes for review and fine-tuning, because regardless of your “level” you can always learn something new, and
ultimately the most basic of Pilates exercises will always be challenging!
