Ten's Reformer Training course inspired me with new ideas and class plans that I have been using in my own studio. Joe and Neil were very professional and good at helping people from different backgrounds, dancers, PT’s and Pilates trainers. The course was fast flowing with an active learning process to ensure you get the most out of the time. The online portal was an excellent tool with great videos.
I would highly recommend this course to other trainers who have no reformer experience as well as existing Pilates Reformer instructors.
