Indeed, people who do Pilates regularly feel they have better posture, are less prone to injury, and experience better overall health.

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that seeks to build flexibility, strength, endurance, and coordination without adding muscle bulk. For decades, it's been the exercise of choice for dancers and gymnasts (and now Hollywood actors).

This course is designed to develop you as a professional Pilates trainer, offering you the flexibility to study, and then teach, without giving up your day job. If you already work in the fitness industry, adding Pilates to your CV will enhance your opportunities to teach more classes and add variety to your week.

Each lesson teaches you the fundamentals of the Pilates system and guides you towards running your own classes. Over the course of eight lessons you will build up a compendium of over 100 exercises which you can integrate into a wide range of other disciplines, such as yoga or dance, or simply teach as a specialism.

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.
