Rose Molder

Rose discovered Pilates in 2005 after looking for an exercise program that wouldn't aggravate her pre-existing knee and shoulder injuries. After experiencing its rehabilitative benefits and its constant physical challenges, it soon became her exercise of choice. She became so enthralled with the method and its wide range of challenging exercises that she enrolled in the Balanced Body Teacher Training Program in 2011. Since completing her comprehensive certification, Rose has made it her mission to create sessions that are imaginative, accessible and challenging for clients of all ages and fitness levels.
Suspension Training Just Grew Up.
 
The Bodhi System is the perfect blend of strength and bodyweight conditioning, Pilates, and balance training. By taking the body out of alignment with gravity, the body's deep core muscles are challenged, and total body strength, dynamic stability, and flexibility occur.
 
The ideal complement to your Pilates or personal training practice, Bodhi adds standing, balance, and stability elements that bodies respond to and enjoy.
