Geneviève Nedder is the Founder and Director of Tucson's Body Fundamentals, Inc., which originated in Denver, CO in 1996. She is a University of Arizona graduate and a Chopra Center Perfect Health/Ayurvedic Educator.
She was introduced to Pilates in 1995 after two serious car accidents left her with severe neck, back, jaw and shoulder injuries. Pilates rehabilitation ultimately relieved much of the pain and prevented the need for several surgeries. Read more about her journey here.
Her extensive and intensive Pilates education and teacher training includes an in depth, decade long study with First Generation Master Ron Fletcher whom she was introduced to in 1995 and who certified her directly. Additionally, since 1995 she has worked privately and in yearly workshops with Pat Guyton, John P. White, Diana Landin and received comprehensive teacher training certifications through Master Teacher Barbara Huttner in Denver, Colorado.
She is a PMA® CPT and a graduate of the Essential Motion Inc. Post-Rehabilitation Training Program which uniquely qualifies her to teach post rehabilitation Pilates.
Her Tucson studio celebrated its eighteenth year anniversary this past January. In addition to offering full time Pilates, it's a place for Pilates Teachers in Training to receive their observation hours as well as attend Teacher Workshops and weekly Master classes.
Prior to Pilates, Genevieve trained and studied at Pepperdine University, The National Theatre Conservatory, The University of Arizona and The Oxford School of Drama. She has a BFA in Drama production with minors in Dance and Art History. For over two decades, she directed professionally and performed on stage, in television, film and video in London and Oxford, England; Edinburgh, Scotland; Los Angeles, California; Denver, Colorado and Phoenix, Arizona, among other U.S. cities.
Stevie certified in Classical Pilates through Master Teacher John White and The John White Movement Program. In addition, she completed a three year apprenticeship with Geneviève Nedder at Body Fundamentals. During her apprenticeship she studied Pre-Pilates and Post-Rehabilitation techniques as well as Restorative Foam Roller exercises.
