This is just to let you know how happy I am about passing the exams of Foundation/Level1. ( I will give in the missing parts of my folder soon)
It was a great experience with you all and it was definitely a window of opportunity to have heard about your studio just in time when I was looking for a place to start some training in the directions of Pilates or Yoga.
One year ago I was not sure if I will ever be able to learn all the exercises, anatomy and teaching it. So I am really happy to have come so far thanks to you all.
I think the program of the formation is pedagogically very well done and thought through. With all the help and corrections we got, we can feel much more confident in teaching others although it will still be a while to go to be really professional. But... step by step.
Thank you Kelly. It was a fabulous course (Mat Level 2) and I learnt a great deal; very stimulating. We are lucky to be able to benefit so much from your wealth of experience. Looking forward to practicing soon.
About Kelly McKinnon's Pilates Manuals / Corpus Studios Production
I just wanted to say Thank-you!...(...) I am a great fan of the way the mat work is presented...there is nothing like this in the UK...from what I've come across, the exercise way is a lot more gentle and relaxing and I like the more powerful approach...having compared notes with others I consider Kelly's' approach akin to yoga as a discipline rather than a drop in class as it reminds me of the way ballet is taught, as a build up to produce a controlled result and not a quick 'fix' (...) I am a great admirer of this concept and approach.....I am definitely singing your praises to anyone who will listen!
