Denise has taught me so much and has influenced my teaching more than anyone else in the last 5 years while simultaneously getting my own body symptom-free from chronic disc pain.
- Ellie Herman
Denise Small's workshop completely changed how I approach movement, both personally and with my clients. This workshop deepened my understanding of the Pilates repertoire and anatomy in motion. Denise's formulas opened me up to new approaches and tools for exploring Pilates movement, apparatus, and props. As I implemented these new techniques, I immediately saw positive results with my clients. This is a wonderful workshop for Pilates instructors looking to expand their methods for teaching both rehabilitative and healthy clients.
