Thank you!! I really enjoy my experiences with all of you and the fact that you’ve helped me to achieve better fitness over the last few years. Thank you for all that you do! You are a great bunch of women who work so hard to make life better for all of your members! I greatly appreciate all of your efforts. I feel lucky to be a part of the Body Moves “family.” You offer a truly unique service for so many of us!! I would not be in such good shape without you. Thanks again! – Gloria Dorr, Retired Nurse
I want to express my deep appreciation for all the efforts you all have gone to continue to provide opportunities for all of us to stay active and well. One of the bright spots of this pandemic has been the opportunity to stay connected virtually. – Carol Erickson, Retired Educator.
Thanks so much for keeping us on the path toward our best selves. You have been a godsend, especially in the time of COVID. Thanks so much for all the many ways you work to keep us connected, positive, and fit! — Sara Rynes and Paul Weller
Thanks for all you do – you have made 2020 bearable. 2021 will be better! —

Today I reflect back to your email arriving out of the blue after I had searched in vain for a personal trainer. You offered group training at reasonable rates – the perfect opportunity! That led to a new adventure and to a better feeling about my body and health. Then you asked me to spread a few ideas, and that led to my feeling better about my abilities. Next came Nia and, with it, even more body healing. But it is the heart and soul of Body Moves and the friendships I treasure the most. I know similar experiences are repeated student after student after student. You started something in 2013 for which people were hungry, a community where people are connected in mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for seeing what was needed, or being visionary. Happy anniversary, Body Moves! — Laurie Cummins
What a blessing it is to know you, and to learn, heal, and flourish in your beautiful studio. I so appreciate your warm welcome every time and have been so inspired by your book and the nurturing and supportive haven you’ve created for getting healthier in mind, body, and spirit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart – I couldn’t be more grateful! — Susan Hult
Finding Body Moves T’ai Chi community was one of the best moments of serendipity. I am so grateful I was able to join this community virtually this year. You all are an important part of my week and health care during this challenging year. Thank you. – Beth Nobles, Denver, CO
I enjoyed small group training so much! The workouts were a favorite part of my week. Though I’ve moved away from the Iowa City area, small group training got me started on a lifetime path to taking functional fitness classes. – Julie Ohde, Decorah, IA
The Hybrid format works great for me. I am grateful to have some routine again. I know that on Monday and Thursday at 9:00 a.m. I have something to do, people to connect with. – Linda Fincham
Thank you for being YOU! (passionate, caring, energetic, responsive, knowledgeable). I am so fortunate to have landed at Body Moves! – Mary Ann Zimmerman
Thank you, Beth and instructors! You have been my rock throughout the pandemic. I listen to all of your Touch Points and see your daily words of wisdom! I am tired of trying to dance or exercise through Zoom and live Facebook in my cramped space at home and I miss people, but I trust the science. For now, until [covid] numbers are lower, I will continue to attend via Zoom and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the option. – Sue Rager
I have been a member of Body Moves for 9 years. All of the instructors are highly qualified and friendly. During the pandemic the owner and staff have developed protocols that keep all participants safe and able to maintain their exercise routines. The emphasis always is on the joy of movement. – Nancy LePeau
Body Moves is one of those places where you can enjoy yourself body, mind and spirit. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, they’ve found wonderful ways to stay connected to us and to keep us moving and growing. Love my studio! – Judith Jensen
Excellent variety of classes and such a beautiful community of movers, shakers and thinkers. This is a beautiful space that now offers online classes which help build resiliency during this pandemic and beyond. – Robyn Braverman
I’ve been taking classes and attending seminars and other events at Body Moves for more than six years. What a warm, welcoming, and fun environment! The instructors are experienced and knowledgeable and support the progress of every student toward healthy physical, spiritual and emotional growth. Body Moves is a community of wonderful people and I’ve found a home there. – Barb Faust
Lovely, professional staff who are knowledgeable and supportive. Lots of options, especially zoom and hybrid classes during covid. I’ve been with Body Moves for at least 4 years, participating in small group training, TaiChi, and Qigong. Very safe for people with physical limitations. Trainers provide options to protect physical problems and limitations. – Julie Noble
I’ve moved and grooved with Body Moves since 2013. This is not a “gym”, but a beautiful movement space that uses functional aging and lifestyle principles to help adults stay fit not only in body, but in mind and spirit.
Body Moves is one of just a handful of places in IOWA that has Nia classes (The Nia Technique).
They also have body sculpt, gentle yoga, yin yoga, yoga with a chair, Zumba, Pilates, qigong, small group personal training, T’ai Chi. They also have lifestyle learning events in nutrition, brain health, fall prevention, meditation, and so much more.
The pandemic made them pivot to an online platform, which has worked really well. They have a few classes that are hybrid (both online and in-studio).
Body Moves is a great community and I’m so grateful to have found them! – Amandine Mothershed
