Patricia brought us to the next level! I did exercises that I thought I could not do at this point in my life ( I am a 55 -year-old former dancer). My athletic clients will be very happy when I includes these exercises in their program!
Patricia did a wonderful job incorporating rationale and movement principals with each exercise and how to safely teach the advanced repertoire, moving through progression and prerequisites for each exercise taught. She also tied exercises to similar work on other Pilates equipment in order to start thinking about using a variety of Pilates equipment to activate/challenge same muscle groups/body movements. Patricia is so motivated and truly cares about teaching her students the correct technical skills and body knowledge to successfully progress clients in their Pilates journey safely. I really enjoyed the training. Thank you Patricia!!
I have personally have not been invigorated to learn in a long time until I took my Reformer 2 course with Patricia. She was Ah-mazing! She was very clear in her instruction, she was precise with how she wanted to learn and to cue the exercise. She has a wealth of experience and information. As a healthcare professional that holds several graduate degrees and also a graduate school level professor, my brain was overloaded with wonderful nuggets of knowledge that is practical for my future Pilates clients/patients. She is kind, open, loving, and extremely supportive. Most of all, she has a wonderful sense of humor, which was the cherry on top for me 🙂
I really enjoyed my reformer 3 training at Suncoast Pilates with Patricia Welter. It was an amazing weekend of learning. She has a great personality and teaches in a way that makes it easy to grasp the material. I really enjoyed learning at Suncoast Pilates!
Patricia is and outstanding teacher, she is clear, to the point, gives alternative for diverse populations and have extensive knowledge of the body, the history of Pilates and understanding of the business. I am learning a lot with her!
