This was such an important and inspiring workshop.Thank you Brent for sharing your knowledge and personal experience with such humanity and intelligence.I was reminded of your workshop in Athens Greece and when you spoke of how important it is for teachers to be aligned with kindness and compassion......and thank you Kristi for giving us the opportunity to learn from so many wonderful teachers.

I appreciate this workshop so very much.. There are alot of days I feel so alone with my Pilates and I feel like I have nowhere to turn. I spend alot of hrs researching and looking for clues and answers to concerns I have with clients. Thank you Brent for giving me so much to think about. I realize I need a mentor so badly. Working from home can be so isolating and this opened my eyes to alot of things I have been worrying about lately and has inspired me to try and reach out for help and get out of this box I have created for myself. I want to do the very best that I can for my clients but somedays it does get overwhelming.

Fabulous workshop. I intended to just sit through 2 or 3 chapters but couldn't take myself away. Thankyou, Brent, for making the spiritual not so 'out there', and explainable through science. And thankyou, Kristy, for bringing us this workshop and for all you do with

Excellent workshop Brent! The content is rich and so relevant to our profession at this time. Thank you for pointing to the distinctions between novice and experts. I am particularly grateful for your beautiful leadership in bridging the essence of spirituality into the matter of working with the body of alignment. I love the intelligence and elegance of your presentation. Awesome!

Like the poster above (Louise), I intended to watch for a half hour and come back later, but ended up watching the whole lecture at once. Really enlightening. His stories and analogies kept me interested, and his humble demeanor shows us all it's ok to "not know" sometimes. It also motivates me to sign up for my next continuing education training! Thanks so much!
