    As an experienced, passionate certified fitness and personal training instructor, adding Pilates to my repertoire has greatly enhanced my skill set allowing me to reach my clients in a smarter, more methodical and balanced way. The bonus of personal growth and new like minded friends I met along the journey was a blessing!

    The MOVE instructor training was the best, most comprehensive training I’ve encountered. The program is full of the most caring and beautiful people. I felt so accepted, supported, and empowered.

    The instructors are smart, encouraging, and have so much information on the body, movement, and personal experience with clients. It has given me the confidence to go out and teach on my own knowing I will have the information to teach them.
