“In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 sessions you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body”

Joseph H. Pilates

The “Mat Programme Level II/Matwork Level II” introduces new exercises with modifications and variations using the mini ball. A more in-depth emphasis is given on the Pilates principles and “Pilates keys” and also on the teaching method and the elements of effective instruction. This course aims on improving communication capability

while teaching Pilates sessions with power and flow. And practice… practice… is the secret to achieving improvement. “Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor”, Joseph H. Pilates.
