I feel so much more confident and even excited to help pregnant women on their journey. You have reminded me of the importance of pelvic floor activation and relaxation for anyone, pregnant or not.

Kelly Dalby (Pregnancy in Motion, 01.11.2016)

Course was wonderfully educational, informative and inspiring. Well delivered by extremely knowledgeable instructors, thank you. I have gained the confidence to conduct a pregnancy class or post-natal care for a client.

Anonymous (Pregnancy in Motion, 01.11.2016)

The course was delivered with clear and precise information directly targeted to pregnancy, pre and post natal. Exactly what I was looking for!

Deborah Holt (Pregnancy in Motion, 01.11.2016)

Fantastic course, well structured with theory and practical components. The workbooks are well laid out and have great instructions. The variations of exercises and interchangeability of props depending on what you want to use for the class or what you want to have available will benefit my daily work.

Ana (Pilates & Props: Roller, Toning Balls, Magic Circle, 01.10.2016)

I enjoyed learning the combination of props, having done the foam roller course previously. The content was good and tips were provided for incorporating and varying into classes. A much needed refresher to help reinvigorate my approach to planning my classes.

Mary Andreotta (Pilates & Props: Roller, Toning Balls, Magic Circle, 01.10.2016)

It was fabulous! I can definitely use it to integrate into teaching and my practice straight away. Taking away the different feel of an exercise when you add a prop – it can really change and challenge the exercise.

Hayley Foulkes (Pilates & Props: Roller, Toning Balls, Magic Circle, 01.10.2016)

Absolutely brilliant. I learnt so many useful ways to read my client’s posture. The way the information was delivered made the course fun. The interactive body reading with other course participants was extremely helpful – especially with the assistants helping. I am going to make the practice of body reading more of a priority with my clients, and also the general public.

Karina Blow (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

A huge THANK YOU to Mumu. Honestly, Mumu has an amazing talent for delivering the information in an easy to understand manner. Thank you also massively to Joanne, Annelise and Leonie for so much help and advice, which assists my learning in a friendly way. Love you all.

Karina Blow (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Relevant, informative and inspiring. I will take away a clearer focus on reading unhelpful body patterns.

Vanessa (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

The course fell into place over the two days. I felt relaxed and happy while learning in Mumu’s teaching style. I will integrate all of this information as much as possible.

Deborah Holt (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Brilliant, incredibly valuable. I now have an ability to assess – or at least a starting point to assess, where the body is at.

Val Vallee (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Loved it, awesome and overwhelming at the same time. Great information and tools to take away and continue learning.

Caleb Dreaver (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Very thought provoking! Body reading will be a very useful tool in my practice.

Eva Fekete (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Great layout of course material. Very interactive, I loved the work in groups and pairs. Outstanding lecturing and delivery, love everything about art of motion courses. I feel more confident in talking to health professionals, I will take my 1:1 clients to another level and enhance my skills in body reading structural relationship. A great course to do before the Slings Diploma.

Claudia Buehrer (Pilates Body Reading, 01.05.2016)

Completing overwhelming at the start but through fantastic group discussion and the brainstorming class planning session at the end of day 4 I feel it’s all come together. All the great tactile cueing and advice on posture etc. throughout has given me much improved body awareness. I feel so much more equipped!

Mel Tibbitts (Pilates Flow, 01.05.2016)

Absolutely incredible course! Content rich and expert teachers! Mumu is like no other – I love her teaching style, which adapts to all students. I have a terrific sense of my body after Flow. I can relate well to my massage clients and their ailments by understanding what I have been learning through the Pilates Matwork Certification.

Karina Blow (Pilates Flow, 01.05.2016)

World class quality, inspirational with super high standards. The technical knowledge and explanations I now know will greatly benefit my daily work.

Valerie Vallee (Pilates Flow, 01.05.2016)

Bonnie and Martina delivered the course in a very professional manner. Their knowledge and expertise was absolutely outstanding. I had so much fun learning and the information was supplied to me in a way that made me feel competent. No questions were left to the imagination. Everything was explained clearly. It’s one of the best courses I‘ve been on – thank you.

Karina Blow (Pilates Essentials, 01.04.2016)

Completing the Contemporary Pilates Matwork Certification course with art of motion literally changed my life! Initially I enrolled into the course, as I wanted to deepen my knowledge of my own body to improve an injury. In turn I learned how capable I really am, on many levels. I wasn't planning on becoming a Pilates instructor, although after completing my practical exam I was on a high! I loved it! Within a month I left my full time job in the corporate world and pursued my passions. I get so much enjoyment from guiding others to realise or heighten their physical & mental capabilities within themselves.

Michelle (Pilates Matwork Certification, 01.09.2015)

In nearly a decade of teaching and exploring different schools and philosophies in the Pilates method, art of motion is the most thorough and authentic training I have received. Educators Mumu and Karin leave no stone unturned in ensuring the intentions of each movement is understood by course participants through experiential learning and encouraging inquisitiveness.

Annelise (Pilates Matwork Certification, 01.01.2014)

I have recently completed the Pilates Matwork Certificate with Mumu and would like to say thank you for such an amazing experience. Not only did we learn so much about the human body we learnt about ourselves and how to interpret body patterns and how to correct them through movement.

Simone (Pilates Matwork Certification, 01.01.2014)

The art of motion Pilates Contemporary Matwork course has transformed the concept of movement for me. We were guided by extraordinary teachers and given a wealth of knowledge and unique tools with which to draw upon, not only for our own practice but also for the education of others.

Thank you!

Isabelle Robison (Pilates Matwork Certification, 01.01.2014)

Angelina Boccardo (Pilates Matwork Certification, 01.01.2014)

Functional Choreography has given me great tools for creating adaptable and interchangeable functional classes that set clients up for success!

Annelise Remigio (Pilates Functional Choreography, 01.01.2014)

I completed my Contemporary Pilates Matwork certification with art of motion with the intention of gaining knowledge and skills to enhance my awareness and capacity as a Yoga Teacher and Body Worker. It was the open and expansive system of education that art of motion has created within the Contemporary Pilates framework that stood out to me the most and assisted my own unique learning style throughout the course. What this means is that I now feel confident to use these skills and information in all areas of my work and personal practice. I found the Flow and Body Reading components of the course particularly beneficial. Through these I have gained an in-depth understanding of how to modify movements and best write functional programs that cater for the individual needs of my clients. In addition I now have insight into the fundamental importance of the pelvic floor structure, functions and the effects this can have on the entire body system and breath. I highly recommend this training to anyone who wants to expand their own personal Pilates or yoga practice, and grow dramatically in their understanding of the body, breath and functional movement.
