All the teachers are phenomenal and always provide an incredible experience.
The calm and easy way of speaking and cueing is so appreciated.
Having access to the recordings of the master classes and courses and extra videos/content that are sent out after the fact are amazing. It means we have the opportunity to take our time and review things and see if we missed anything.
This equates to a deeper level of understanding and you really walk away with everything you need to put it into practice.
Very helpful tips and practices for adapting to this new online environment.
Recently I took Hip Replacements course with Bonnie. Excellent instructor. Left with knowledge and confidence that I could use with my clients right away.
I have taken a few courses with Body Harmonics and have loved each one. Recommend highly.
... not only did I learn about the subject matter but I learned about myself and truly was changed. I expected to be able to teach Pilates. I discovered I needed to truly learn Pilates first.
The Body Harmonics Pilates Teacher Training program exceeded my expectations.
. . . Shoptalk and Mondays with Margot are an invaluable sources of information and support for those of us rather "on our own" in rural areas . . .
Since Larisa came on board I have seen how Body Harmonics has been transformed for those of us living outside the city. Thank you so much for your hard work and creativity.
I thoroughly enjoyed Pilates Level 1: Mat Express. It was such a thoughtfully laid out program and Jennifer Horvath, our teacher trainer, was absolutely incredible.
I'd recommend this program to anyone, and I can't wait to take more of Body Harmonics teacher training in the future!
VERY INFORMATIVE as I do work with 50+ demographic and many of my clients are affected by arthritis.
I absolutely love your courses, perspective on movement and how you integrate your knowledge for such functional movement.
I always leave with wonderful pearls of wisdom and my clients always know when I have been on a course.
I am still in a state of bliss after the Postural Analysis course with you on Friday and Saturday. I have already taught five classes this week and trained some in-home clients.
Each time I included or shared something from this weekend that you taught us.
Margot: as always . . . you’re an AMAZING TRAINER!
Thanks so much for another awesome course!!
I enjoyed the hands-on approach to learning anatomy. I have taken several courses at different places and never had the same body-mind integrated approach.
My mind has a lot of thinking to do. I am rethinking everything.
Deena was an absolutely wonderful instructor. She made sure I understood every component before moving on, answered all my questions, and took the time to help me understand more deeply the areas in which I was most interested (or was having trouble understanding).
I'm most grateful however for her help "brain-storming" about how I might apply the teachings to the unique population that I work with.
I’m thrilled with the new knowledge I gained attending a Body Harmonics course.
I’ve used it with my private clients, active athletes and mixed group classes, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive: persistently tight hips have loosened up, and clients report an overall feeling of “feeling supported” in their movement.
How awesome is that?!! Thank you Margot!
Wow, I learned so much more about what you CAN do if you have osteoporosis!
Thanks! Love it. You have created such a great environment for both clients and teachers. I love how every course and brings together wonderful people with many ideas and goals.
I always feel enriched by experiencing other teachers' challenges and experiences and find it amazing that there is always a new path to try.
Such a wealth of info put into practice.
Please continue offering classes and courses virtually!
I would recommend this program to anyone.
And I can't wait to take more Body Harmonics Teacher Training in the future!
Out of all organizations I am involved in yours has been the best experience.
I have only ever heard good things about your trainings and classes, and the service from all departments has been outstanding.
The handout and the visuals were excellent.
Bonnie's explanations were very clear and her teaching strong.
The course was very helpful.
I have taken multiple Continuing Education courses during the pandemic and they have provided a fantastic focus for me.
I have learned so much and the information has sparked my creativity and helped me to work with my clients effectively, online.
The Pilates Level 1: Mat Express training that I just did was outstanding! I feel inspired and my body feels fantastic.
This truly healing work is what I hope to provide to others through my teaching. Thanks to the whole Body Harmonics team!
