Meet Abby Harris

Please help us welcome Abby Harris to The Bodhi Tree Family!

Abby will be teaching Mat Pilates starting in February. 
Here is a little bit about Abby. ❤️🙏😊

Abby is a certified Classical Pilates Instructor with over 1,000 hours in teacher training including all levels of mat pilates including the full classical pilates equipment apparatus. She received her certification through the Classical Pilates Education in Nashville, TN. After suffering a severe head injury, Pilates became her saving grace by going back to the basics and relearning her body. 
Her passion is to help anyone who wants to learn more about the mind, body, and spirit through the pilates method and just feel better in general. 
Abby is a full time magazine designer but also meets with clients in her private office. She hopes to bring Classical Pilates back to Quincy so that it may be the saving grace like it was for her.

Mat Pilates is for all levels, beginner to advanced. This class takes place on the floor with a yoga mat. Pilates focuses on the mind-body connection by engaging and challenging the core and the mind. Breathing, stretching, core work and relaxation will be the main focus. All ages and levels welcome.


Meet Jamie Parrott

Meet Joe

I'm just your average Joe. In my pass-time I enjoy riding my bike any where and everywhere. I love being outside; moving my body is my greatest passion. I currently work at Good Samaritan home where most of my Friday's I teach a chair chi class to several residents. I enjoy motivating them to focus on the movements and try their best. My main title at Good Samaritan is an activity aide. From my experience, I have a greater appreciation for the connection of the mind and body.

Chair chi is an excellent example of the unison between our body and mind. I hope to bring to this class that fitness is not a marathon, but a journey. Chair chi encourages the participants to focus on the movements of the body and the thoughts and dedication that goes along with it.
