The Pilates Body AZView Schedule
Jody Stern and The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix are proud to be the BASI host studio in Phoenix, AZ! Jody has been a fitness professional for over 30 years and holds a degree in Adapted Physical Education from California State University, Northridge. Jody has been teaching Pilates for nearly 20 years, opening The Pilates Body studio in April of 2000.
Jody’s history includes living in Israel in 1986, where she was the group exercise coordinator at the Tel Aviv Health Club. Upon returning to L.A. in 1990, Jody worked as the stretching coach to the L.A. Clippers basketball team. In 1994 Jody and her family moved to Phoenix. Shortly after that she began her Pilates career. While Jody is STOTT Pilates certified, through the advanced level in Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels , since 2000, she began her BASI education journey in 2006. Jody is also a certified Spinning teacher.
In 2009, she sold her original studio location to close friend and colleague, Lisa Bettini Moro and successfully opened the Central Phoenix location. In 2012, Jody and Lisa were honored to train in the BASI method in the inaugural Pro Bridge course with founder, owner and world-renowned educator, Rael Isacowitz. Jody became a proud BASI graduate in February 2014! She has completed many BASI workshops and advanced education courses, including Injuries and Pathologies. Her own BASI journey continues with the Legacy Program, having completed the next level with the Mentor, and Master 1 programs. Jody will take Master 2 in December 2017, and complete the final program, Honors, sometime in the future.
Pilates is a driving force in Jody’s everyday life, and she continues to grow as a student, teacher and studio owner. Nothing gives her more pleasure than being able to make a difference and help people of all ages and stages feel better with Pilates!
Jody is an avid swimmer and cyclist, and competed since 1982 in running 10k, half-marathon, marathon distances, and sprint and Olympic triathlons. No longer able to run, without Pilates, Jody feels that she would not have the physical or mental strength to keep moving forward!
All our instructors are graduates of the BASI Pilates Academy and are highly experienced in working with the full spectrum of population groups, ages and physical needs.
