“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.”
“Where do I begin to praise Emma Newham. I have just completed her first rate Pilates Mat Online Course. Emma delivers this course with such in depth instruction. I watched the videos over and over again and learnt something new every time. Her knowledge and experience is second to none and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course.”
“Emma Newham is someone who truly enjoys and has a passion for sharing her Pilates knowledge. She has professionality, enthusiasm and care for your well being and also for your preparation as teacher. She is my BarreConcept teacher and she is so friendly and helpful even if long distance take us apart as I'm from Rome, Italy. When I have a doubt she promptly answer to my question. 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. ”
“I have known Emma for over a decade. Emma is a brilliant, articulate, passionate teacher who really cares about the people she teaches. Her dedication, knowledge and ability is second to none. The course I did with Emma was fun, exciting and full of new ways to teach which benefitted me greatly.”
