Geneviève Nedder

Geneviève Nedder is the owner and founder of Body Fundamentals, Inc. a Pilates & Wellness Studio in Tucson, Arizona. She helps clients achieve optimal health and make positive lifelong changes, through Movement, Meditation, and Integrative Nutrition.

In addition to teaching Pilates full-time, she presents customized health and wellness programs for small businesses, corporations, and destination resorts. Her Mind-Body Wellness programs build immunity, resilience, and help improve overall health. She is also available for private consulting services.

Professional Education

Her Pilates practice began in Denver, CO, in 1993, 1 year after her second car accident, and her formal Pilates education began six months later. Her extensive Pilates education began at The Pilates Center in Boulder followed by an in-depth, decade-long study with Pilates elder Ron Fletcher who certified her directly. Additionally, she certified with Master Teacher Barbara Huttner during a full-time two-year comprehensive training program. She is also certified through NPCP (National Pilates Certification Program), and a graduate of the Essential Motion Inc., Post-Rehabilitation Program a year-long intensive that qualifies her to teach Pilates post-rehabilitation.

She continues to be a student of movement through yearly continuing education and dedicated daily practice.

Since 2014 Geneviève has studied under Dr. Deepak Chopra and his team of educators at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, now Chopra Global. Trained as a Perfect Health Lifestyle Educator by Dr. Deepak Chopra and other leading Ayurvedic experts, she is a certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant and a Chopra Certified Health Coach. She is deeply passionate about helping others heal and live better through Ayurveda- the science of life, and through the practice of mind-body medicine.


Additional Pilates Movement & Education

Rehabilitative Pilates training in Postural Correction, Gait-Patterning, and Movement Analysis. 

Geneviève's 32-year teaching career includes weekly coaching of athletes, physicians, and high-level executives as well as those seeking to manage chronic pain. She founded her first two Pilates studios in 1996 and 1997 while living in Denver, Colorado, re-establishing in Tucson in 2000. 

In addition to practicing Pilates, clients learn tools that help them:

  • Integrate mind/body awareness
  • Breath awareness
  • Improve posture
  • Correct harmful movement patterns
  • Gait Repatterning
  • Reverse the Stress response

Before her Pilates career, Genevieve trained and studied at Pepperdine University, The National Theatre Conservatory, The University of Arizona, and The Oxford School of Drama.
