Looking back on my education, firstly as a Certificate IV – Matwork graduate and then a Diploma graduate, I cannot help but to feel a sense of community and a feeling that, ‘I want to be back amongst it all…’. I know all good things must come to an end and it was time I became an independent instructor free from NPT. With no delay, I was hired as an instructor with Melbourne Pilates Group and here my journey continues to this day. I wish for all future instructors to enjoy the whole movement learning experience. It will give you a new outlook on life and perhaps change your initial impressions to what encompasses exercise and fitness. Of course, the learning experience will encompass both these things, but it may challenge and/or set a new awareness to what you perceive as ‘movement’.Just remember, “Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavour”(Joseph H. Pilates).
