Loved the course - great practical explanations on how to modify exercises for clients with injuries.

Loved the course - great practical explanations on how to modify exercises for clients with injuries. Really good overview of anatomy - leaves me curious & wanting to learn more!! One suggestion is to have separate handout of Basi Block system for homework assignments. This would allow students to make extra copies to take notes on - when classmates presented their recommended exercise layout. Well done

Course was very very good!

By Petros K
Maybe if there was one more day, it would better to cover all this material, because it was a lot of information in 3 days. But in general the Course was very very good!

It was great. I wish we had had more time, for example, for Question and Answer.
