The Artful Eye “Advanced Teaching Skills” By Constance Holder was a true glimpse into the skillful art form that is teaching pilates. Constance is as great as it gets when it comes to looking at a client and knowing where to go with a session. She emphasizes goal driven movement. It’s like meeting a body psychic. She reads posture, strength, and areas of concern and then designs a workout tailored to meet those needs and challenges you to exceed your own personal expectations. It was an honor to learn from a master and someone who deeply cares about her practice and profession. It was worth very minute and penny as a student in BASI training.I would also recommend any of the upcoming lectures for furthering your pilates profession. With deep respect and gratitude,
— Heather Andrews
Thank you arranging a fabulous weekend , wonderful to have the opportunity to attend events with presenters who have so much experience and knowledge. Loved the location and the number of participants ( hate large class sizes). Lovely atmosphere of sharing and supporting, Constance was amazing as always! So looking forward to joining you again.
