“I am extremely pleased with my experience—not only do I feel like I received the best Pilates education possible, but I was overwhelmed by the support and commitment of the teachers/advisors to the trainees. The online platform is amazing with so much material—MORE than I even realized at the beginning of the program. It was helpful to have Formal Lectures to watch, helpful to have the observation library, and all the hours of pre-recorded videos for reference, observation, and learning.”
