"Josie has so much experience in Pilates, Yoga and Fitness industry and she shares her extensive knowledge very generously. Her lectures and materials are very clear and the way she gives instructions is very precise. Josie has always been very supportive and approachable. A teacher like her is hard to find and there is always so much to learn." Justina Kaselionyte
Pilates has proved to be one of the most useful forms of exercise I've learned in the 40 years I've been actively interested in health and fitness. It's helped from a technique point of view with everything else I teach and seeing the difference it's made to my clients health and wellbeing has been particularly rewarding.
Simply helping clients correct their posture can improve or even cure many health issues including back problems, stress incontinence, preparation for/recovery after childbirth, arthritis and other joint problems, recovery and prevention of injuries, improved mental wellbeing and of course, a fit, strong, flexible body.

"I absolutely LOVED this course! As a physiotherapist, it was wonderful to see detailed descriptions of the anatomical structures required for each exercise, as well as the physiological benefits.

Thank you so much for the useful resources as well :)" Amanda Anne Neri

Some information on this extremely confusing subject!
Please watch the video - hit pause if it moves too fast! Below are some of links to which I refer for each of use. Let me know if you have any other questions or problems and I'm happy to help - always available : )
This is the most important concept you will teach so practice as often as possible until you have a clear understanding yourself.
What is neutral position?
Where are the core muscles?
What is thoracic/lateral breathing?
Understand the connection between the breath and core muscles
Understand how to engage the core and stabilise the spine and pelvis
Even if you have experience of Pilates, this course is based on the Classical Mat Sequence so please at least watch these next three videos to gain an understanding of how the practice evolves.
For those who have already done my New Body course this is revision;
for those new to Pilates this is your opportunity to build a strong personal practice whilst you continue to study the course;
for those with Pilates experience this is a great way to remind yourselves of where you started!
You must be an expert practitioner to take your clients safely to the advanced options and be able to demonstrate with perfect technique.
The warm up is on all fours which works very well with strength exercises such as push ups, planks and prone positions.
