Meet Our Instructors

My name is Laura McKaskle.  I am certified through BASI Pilates.  I created and founded Bodhi Pilates with the hope that Pilates transforms you as it has me.  Pilates has had a profound impact on my mental and physical awareness.  I was a busy attorney for an international law firm when I began practicing Pilates.  I fell in love instantly, not only with the physical changes to the shape of my body, but to the relief I felt by re-aligning my spine and strengthening my core.   I was reshaped and renewed physically and emotionally, which allowed me to find harmony and balance.  I left my career as an attorney and became a Pilates instructor to help others realize similar transformations.  Bodhi Pilates is a dream fulfilled for me, to create a beautiful, fun and energetic place where people can share their passion for Pilates and strengthen their minds and bodies.

My name is Tammy Shipley and I received my Pilates Mat and Reformer training through Balanced Body Education. I enjoy being active and learning about the body. I’m a licensed physical therapist and have worked with a variety of ages and conditions. My Pilates journey began as I sought to find a form of exercise that would work on my core strength, flexibility, and alignment due to an extensive spinal fusion for scoliosis I had as a young teenager.I found that Pilates could be modified for my body, and helped me to feel more balanced, efficient, and experience less discomfort in my daily, fitness, and recreational activities. I love the whole body approach and connection for both mind and body that Pilates brings.With my background in physical therapy, I am passionate about how effective Pilates is for injury recovery and prevention, and improving the overall quality of life for Pilates practitioners of all fitness levels. I enjoy continually learning and am continuing my education in both the fields of Pilates and Physical Therapy.

My name is Heide Zufall, I recently relocated to Colorado from Northern Virginia and is learning to be a mountain girl.  A former international dancer who majored in dance at SUNY Purchase, Heide appreciates the importance of wellness in body, mind and spirit.  After many years as a yoga student, Heide completed a teacher training program at Health Advantage Yoga Center in Herndon, VA.   She then began taking Pilates at The Pilates Room in McLean, VA and liked how much stronger she felt physically from the inside and out.   Pilates helped her to strengthen the weakness around her joints and spine caused by years of dancing and “tucking”.  Upon encouragement from Janine Donlon, she became a certified Pilates teacher and completed a comprehensive training program on all apparatus and mat with PHI Pilates in Pittsburgh under the guidance of Christine Romani-Ruby. Heide continues to learn by attending various Yoga and Pilates workshops, lately focusing on anatomy.  

“Strengthening the posture and improving alignment will hopefully alleviate stress in the body and mind and make your world outside the studio better. “

My name is Andrea Fowlerhave been practicing Pilates since 2004.  I fell in love with it when I felt the difference Pilates made in my body and how well it complemented other things I did. I suffered with some significant back pain years ago and Pilates has truly healed those issues.  My practice of Pilates has infused all of my favorite activities such as hiking, paddle boarding, snowshoeing, and biking.  I attained my training and level 3 comprehensive certification through Peak Pilates and I have been teaching since 2017.  I love to continually grow and learn in my own practice and as an instructor.

I enjoy (most the time) 😉 my four grown kids, hanging out with my husband, and reading in my down time.

My name is Kennady Simpson, I am a Colorado native and recently graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in Integrative Physiology and a minor in Dance. Growing up, most of my time was spent in a dance studio. I danced in a pre professional company all through high school and after high school I moved to New York City to dance professionally. As I started to dance more, I decided to add Pilates to my training to improve my strength and technique and I saw an immediate difference. I have been taking Pilates for the past ten years consistently and have loved the benefits I have gotten from it. I recently completed my teacher training through BASI and I am excited to share my love of Pilates with others.

Lora Wolfe 2.jpg

My name is Lora Wolfe, a recent Polestar Pilates (Comprehensive) graduate.  In 2011, I moved to Colorado, from the Chicagoland area, with my husband and 2 sons.  For most of my career, I focused on raising my boys and working as a Human Resources Professional.  For all of my life, a daily dose of exercise has been therapy, both mental and physical.  After being injured, I had to shift gears from heavy weightlifting and running to Pilates, by the recommendation of my physical therapist.  I recently trained through Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Program which focuses on using Pilates as part of a rehabilitation program.  It is a joy and a privilege to teach Pilates and to see how it improves strength, breath, axial elongation, core control, spine mobility, alignment (of the body), and mental health in students.  I look forward to meeting you.
