“The course gave me exactly what I needed and more. Many pre/post women are recommended to practice Pilates and I never felt I had the knowledge to give the clients what they needed. This course provided me with the confidence and skills to be able welcome women at all stages of pregnancy and be able to provide exercises which are both safe and effective. I would recommend this course to any teachers looking to expand their knowledge of Pre & Post natal exercise.”
“Really enjoy the teaching on this course. It was relaxed, informative. I felt comfortable to ask questions and got involved in group activity. The knowledge of the teachers is great and I now feel well informed as an instructor. Thank you!”
