What Our Students Have to Say

Body Organics courses are perfect for the seasoned instructor who wants to learn a deeper knowledge of anatomy. Body Organics teachers have an incredible way of explaining complicated biomechanics in easy to apply methods. I’ve always found learning anatomy from a textbook hard to follow, but Carla applies imagery to bring the concepts to life. When you understand how the body moves, you’ll be able to have the capability to cater to a range of complex clients and this is what you get with Body Organics.

I have been teaching Pilates for over 25 years and never stop learning from Carla! Body Organics Education is my go to for continuing education and deepening my knowledge. Carla is one amazing and generous lady, with a gift of explaining anatomy and how the body works in a way that I totally understand. Attention to detail and making sure you understand what is being delivered is Carla’s priority. I highly recommend Body Organics Education, you won’t be disappointed.

Carla is a highly experienced and very knowledgeable instructor with a unique take on the Pilates method. Always generous with her expertise, she really opened my eyes to the beauty and power of movement via Pilates. I have continued my continuing education with Body Organics, one of the best things I ever did, and cannot recommend them highly enough!

The teachers cater to the current stance of the course participants as individuals, and teach as highly informative guides, in a manner that helps the participant to discover their own ideas and to further guide themselves. Do a Body Organics Course and be re-born as a teacher. Also, Carla is super funny - partake in a course simply for the comedic value!
