"I have been a student of Genevieve's since 2001. I absolutely love Pliates and how she teaches it. Her studio is quiet, private and I consider it "my sanctuary" one time per week. I rarely miss my standing appointment because I enjoy the workout so much and have seen wonderful results over the years. I have taken private, semi-private and group classes. An excellent experience in all the classes. I highly recommend Body Fundamentals and Genevieve Nedder for Pilates instruction." - Mary Tosca
