Sharon, Teaching Group Pilates at a Physiotherapist Practice

VIVA Education Course Completed: Reformer Level One Course

How are you now using your qualifications: After completing the Reformer Level 1 course I was able to immediately put my skills into action. I work within a Physio business where we have 6 Reformers only. I find this small class environment allows me to be in touch with my clients’ injuries or limitations (if any) and I’m easily able to adjust an exercise to suit client/s needs. My clients range in age from their early 20’s to in their 80’s and all clients are on a ‘first name’ basis. I’m passionate about ‘giving’ to people and empowering them to be the best version of themselves. In turn, their willingness to progress and challenge themselves is empowering me – I did not expect to receive this emotional reward in return.

What did you love about the VIVA Course?

I loved the VIVA course as it not only provided a positive and encouraging environment, but the teaching was clear and precise. After each module, we were given time to put the theory into practice. I am passionate about VIVA’s techniques as I attended classes for many years before I decided to commit to the course and become an Instructor myself. The ultimate compliment is being asked to return to VIVA to instruct – Thanks VIVA, I love it!

What would you say to anyone thinking about doing the course?

If you are considering doing the course, I would whole heartedly encourage anyone to do so. I am in my 50’s and the varied work hours has been an absolute positive for me.

Is there anything else you think people should know?

If you have a passion for Pilates and are thinking about getting your instructor certification, do it! The VIVA reformer course not only prepares you to become an instructor, but also helps to improve your own personal practice.
