“"This course organized the most important things I have learned about being a PT and treating patients thus far in such a clear, concise, and eloquent way. Then it brought me to my most burning question: "HOW DO I MAKE IT STAY?" It then answered that question. FINALLY!”Jennifer C, PT
“Great course! I liked the videos in addition to just text and that the material was presented in chapters vs all at once. Look forward to taking another course in the future.”Brent DG, PT
“The rationale is close to the gut feelings I've had about exercise. The instructor poses questions to make you think about what you just read & nice interactive videos.”Gretchen K, PT
“I've been a long time follower of your work and it always amazes me how logical the presented concepts are. It makes sense to me and my patients. It is this AHA moment which they like the most - figuring out that the movement might be different from their habitual movement, might be changed, and might feel good. I teach Pilates and the concept of body awareness is one of the main concepts I teach. This is what I see as very often absent (unfortunately) in PT practice and this is what I find (again and again) as a great teaching tool for a patient's success. Thank you again for a great course. ”Natalia T, PTA
