The apprentice should help maintain the orderliness of the studio to create a pleasant environment for all.”

‘I’ve been teaching matwork for a few years before deciding to join the bridging course. Even though I felt very confident in my teaching before, I found that the bridging course gave me the tools to understand movement a lot better, and it is knowledge that will go with me to any discipline. It enhanced my ability as a teacher to support clients as they recover from injuries and challenge them when they are in health. Anoushka is a thoughtful, knowledgeable teacher, and she strives to get the best out of her students’. Sarit Blum, graduate June 2013
‘This course has been bedrock of information that I can build on. My eyes have been opened to ways of moving and how to facilitate movement in ways I would not have believed. The process is deep, gradual and layered skilfully. I’m at the beginning of my journey and feel hungry to keep the practice within my body so I can continue to pass it on’.
Patrice Munro, graduate June 2013
‘After graduating from Anoushka’s matwork teacher training program I decided that I wanted to continue my education with her and enrolled to Pilates in Motion bridging course. In both cases I have researched other providers, as well, and found that Pilates in Motion’s course is the most comprehensive and time compatible for me. Upon my first enrolment, although I was told by Anoushka that the course is very demanding, I did not really comprehend it until I was doing it. There is a lot of material covered and lots of work to be done in between modules. This is a ‘no nonsense’ course, very intensive and educational and it becomes one’s journey of personal development, also learning to take responsibility for that journey. Anoushka is very professional and provides support throughout. She is always available to provide advice and direction. From the start we were regularly provided with very comprehensive manuals for both theory and the practical part of the course. During the course we had a number of visiting lecturers. It was great to have the opportunity to learn so much about human anatomy and pathology and also to discover so many approaches to teaching human movement. In retrospect although it was hard work, I wouldn’t have it any other way, I enjoyed the course so much and I thank Anoushka for her continuing support and guidance’.

'Anoushka´s teacher training is simply excellent! There are a variety of lecturers in a wide range of relevant subjects. The mix of people within our group itself made the journey very rich with plenty of material to work with and think about. The perfect balance between theory and practise maximised learning and kept it both interesting and challenging. You will need to be open minded and be ready to work hard but no doubt about it, she offers the very best in Pilates teacher training!'
