I Could Not Have Done it Without Her!
This was another great workshop hosted and facilitated by Patricia Welter! The content was very challenging for me, but with Pat's guidance and encouragement, I feel that I left with a great grasp of the exercises. I could not have done it without her! She is a gem! ;)
Highly Recommend Patricia and Suncoast Pilates
Excellent course. Patricia did an excellent job of teaching all material, answering questions and providing coaching and support. I would highly recommend Patricia and Suncoast Pilates to anyone interested in becoming certified in Balanced Body Pilates.
