Like a second home

Suncoast Pilates is like a second home. When I walk in the door I am greeted like family. Patricia is incredibly knowledgeable and understands each individual's needs. She is attentive and able to create a fun learning environment. She is all about building the best Pilates practitioners and the best Pilates community.

Exceeded my expectations

This course exceeded my expectations! Patricia is extremely knowledgeable and presented in a straightforward, understandable way. The dynamics of the class were excellent in that the mix of discussion and practice was optimal from my perspective.

by Balanced Body Pilates Instructor Trainee on Suncoast Pilates
Absolutely Amazing

Patricia is absolutely amazing. She's generous with her time and her knowledge. I could take training locally in Jacksonville but it's worth the 4 hour drive to train with Patricia. I can't stress enough how wonderful Patricia is, I know when I leave her training I've gained invaluable knowledge that improves my understanding of Pilates and ability to teach Reformer appropriately.

by Balanced Body Pilates Instructor Trainee on Suncoast Pilates
Highly Recommended

I would highly recommend training with Patricia to anyone seriously interested in becoming certified in balanced body. I feel that I have a stronger grasp on the reformer exercises and principles because of this module and Patricia's guidance.

Reformer 1

I thoroughly enjoyed my learning experience with Patricia! She is so knowledgeable and patient, and her staff was a pleasure to work with, it made me wish I lived closer so I could take training all the time, I am already looking forward to my next seminar, and I have forged a great bond with some of my fellow participants.
