What a blessing and gift it is to learn with and from Patricia and Suncoast Pilates!

This weekend I participated in a TREMENDOUS Reformer 3 Training at Suncoast Pilates. What an AMAZING weekend of learning, growing and deepening our knowledge of Pilates practice! Patricia guided us through each of the Reformer 3 exercises, thoroughly explaining the execution, while also discussing how to properly prepare, cue and spot clients. Although the exercises in Reformer 3 are more challenging to execute, the foundational knowledge we received in Reformer 1 and 2 Trainings allowed us to connect the exercises and to develop a deeper understanding of the exercise progressions. We discussed families of exercises, the importance of smooth, client-centered, effective lessons, thoroughly explored various modifications and learned how to develop our own instructor style when teaching. Patricia’s extensive expertise and personal background really enriched the module experience, allowing us to benefit from her years of practice and intense passion. Patricia wholeheartedly shares her knowledge of Pilates, while maintaining the integrity of the program. She ignites a love for Pilates that inspires others to strive to be the best they can be personally and professionally! What a blessing and gift it is to learn with and from Patricia and Suncoast Pilates!

ENERGETIC, PRECISE, AND VERY INSPIRING

Once again Patricia Welter nailed it!! .........ENERGETIC, PRECISE, AND VERY INSPIRING..... I am looking forward to working with her again for Reformer 3

by Pilates Chair Instructor Training Client on Suncoast Pilates
I am so grateful that I found her and Balanced Body!!

Chair has been my favorite module! The Balanced Body manuals and DVD are absolutely fabulous. I love the colored pictures and detailed explanations. All the info included in the back of all manuals is so helpful. But what really sets Balanced Body apart and has made my bridge over from Peak Pilates such a positive experience is the instructor, Patricia Massey Welter. Patricia is so knowledgeable and really cares about her students. She is available to answer questions, never rushing her students out, and I feel that she genuinely cares about my journey and wants me to be successful. She has been a valuable resource and mentor to me. Her passion of the Pilates method and dedication to teaching her clients and other instructors is so inspiring and respectable for a new instructor like me. Have her keep up the good work and she should know that all the hours and hard work she puts in doesn't go unnoticed!! I am so grateful that I found her and Balanced Body!!

by CoreAlign Instructor Training 1: Foundations Client on Suncoast Pilates
Loved working with Patricia.

Great class, loved working with Patricia. She is a wonderful instructor. I look forward to CoreAlign 2.

by Reformer 2 Instructor Training Client on Suncoast Pilates
Patricia is an amazing instructor

Patricia is an amazing instructor she teaches in a way that is easy to grasp the material and concepts and is more valuable than the book itself. I am very glad to have her as my instructor!!!
