      Bodyworks changed my life. My pain is gone. In my 60s, I feel better than I did in my 20s. Kim is warmhearted and funny, and she has an eagle's eye for the ways a body can get off kilter. Her classes perform miracles.

      Kim is knowledgeable, positive, and kind. Her classes move in an organized pattern to maximize each person’s potential. They are challenging but supportive, but I look forward to her wisdom, expertise, and her charming personality each week.

      I have severe scoliosis, and one leg is an inch shorter than the other. After a lot of pain, I had visions of ending up in a wheelchair. With Kim's help, I've "grown" 1/2 inch; I can ride a bike, garden, and hike. After every injury or new ache, Kim has taught me how to strengthen joints and improve balance, so I can heal and keep going.

      Liza is such an addition to our Pilates classes. She is very professional, precise in her direction as well as being encouraging. She is a bright spot in our week.

      Liza is very clear in her directions for the various exercises in her class. She allows for adaptations to a range of abilities. She is very professional, positive, and encouraging.

OUR MISSION is to educate people—from collegiate students to those well into their twilight years—about how the body works and to enable them to move with ease and strength.

Located on the beautiful 13,000-acre campus of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, Bodyworks Youniversity is a perfect setting for our restorative work. We want your experience to be a “tiny vacation” from your busy life, to learn how to destress and unwind your body and soul.

We offer private and duet sessions that use heat and stretching on Pilates equipment to release and align your body before taking you to core strengthening exercises. We also offer Pilates mat classes to strengthen and tone your body, as well as to educate you about what each exercise is designed to achieve.
