This course was great inspiration for me with a lot of deep informations about pilates and excercises.

By Patricia J
This course was great inspiration for me with a lot of deep informations about pilates and excercises. It is very good to know how far can the body go and how can you prevent injuries or can help others and yourself with problems. In my opinion it would by better to have one weekend more to train excercises and teaching.

I loved the Mat Cour

By Erin B
I loved the Mat Course. Also I would like to add that Stella was very helpful each weekend and very welcoming.

The text is nicely organized and does a good job providing instruction of the exercises.

By Tim H
The text is nicely organized and does a good job providing instruction of the exercises. The format of the course could be re-structured. The instructor reading to us from the book while we followed along, I feel, was time that could have been better spent by assigning the three to four pages as homework and then having active discussion about the reading after students have had time to reflect on the material presented. The instructor could then spend time highlighting those most important "nuggets" within the material and leading a discussion instead of reading to us.
