      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.

      The YouFit class with instructor Betsy Miller is exactly what I was looking for here on the mountain! This class is as good as any class I’ve taken at a big city YMCA. The hour long class works every muscle group and at the end you have more energy than when you started. I have seen improvement in my strength and muscle tone since I began the class. Best of all, it’s fun with good music and great people! Betsy makes sure everyone works at the fitness level that’s best for them.

      Pippa’s yoga class was great! I don’t remember ever feeling so relaxed after a yoga class!

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.

Goodbye 2023 & Hello 2024!

2023 was a good year for Bodyworks. We had two new instructors join us, Pippa Browne teaching Yoga and Hannah Van Buren doing Personal Training. Bruce Manuel completed his Master's degree at Sewanee, Betsy completed a Senior Fitness Specialist Certification, Matthew achieved his Personal Trainers Certification and Hannah completed her PNF Stretching Certification. We added our beautiful new doors to allow multiple activities to take place at the same time in the studio, and we had a very successful collaboration with Folks at Home on Pilates, Chair aerobics and Balance and Strength classes. The Bodyworks staff plan to continue to add to our offerings to better serve the community in seeking health and wellness in 2024. We thank you all for being a part of the Bodyworks family and look forward to having you grow with us in 2024!
