Therefore, you can be assured of the highest quality training standard and education.
There are seven main chakras or energy centres, each corresponding to specific organs, bundles of nerves and particular areas of the body. It is important that they all stay aligned and work optimally, since the life force energy that flows through each chakra can affect our emotional, mental, psychological, social and physical well-being.
Chakra means wheel and refers to the vortices of energy that collect at specific points along the spine. Life force energy (prana) moves through the body within the invisible network of energy channels (nadis). A blockage in any of these channels could lead to dis-ease.
This course will give you practical information about the body’s energy centres, so you can understand the good and the shadow qualities of each of the main seven chakras. From this information, you can identify if there may be a blockage in a particular chakra and identify the practical techniques that may help to shift the stuck energy, thereby restoring health to a specific part of the body.

“Before taking the BarreConcept course, Emma was already very helpful and fast in replying to my e-mails. The course was very special and her passion for teaching the couse and her wide knowledge of pilates, yoga and mindfullness was something that added an extra to the course. She is a great teacher trainer. Emma was also very helpful after the course and she wants you to succeed. ”
“I have enrolled Emma's mat pilates and reformer pilates online course. I know her from her famous barre concept you tube but I did not know much about her method of Pilates teaching. When I started to the course, I am plesantly surprised with the quality of the video taught. Each exercise is through and very detailed and impressive. I have been already teaching pilates for a few years and participate in various pilates classes or workshops. I have never encounter this degree of teaching and it was eye opening. I wish I could keep her videos for life as a pilates bible!! Her course are also extremely reasonable price and high quality. I highly recommend her course.”

She has professionality, enthusiasm and care for your well being and also for your preparation as teacher.

She is my best teacher.”
“Emma has helped me in so many ways. I've completed her detailed online courses and feel competent to teach the techniques and exercises straight away after the brilliant videos and instructions. Having had a few issues myself over my own business, and loosing some confidence, I contacted Emma who spent time out of her crazy schedule emailing me giving me support and advice which helped so much. She has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates and made me believe in myself again. ”
