"As I teach various ages and abilities, this training with Rhona was right up my alley. I wanted to study the breakdowns of the Pilates side of things more to help me cue the movements better in class. I have received great feedback from participants, who truly appreciate learning the basics again. They have noticed a change in how the activate particular muscles in their classes, which is exactly what I wanted them to strive towards.
The yoga side of the course was new for me and very enlightening. I use movements from this course with my dancers, which was my goal when I registered for the course.
Teaching these yoga flows and movements to my students will help them to learn to control their range of motion and learn where their bodies are in space. This is part of their strength and conditioning program and I incorporate various movements I learned into the warm-ups and workout progressions among other exercises.
Rhona strives to help other fitness and health professionals gain more knowledge in their practices so they can better serve their clients.
Thank you, Rhona, for filling my brain with more fantastic information

"I wanted to share with you my recent experience with Rhona and her Antaraka yoga/Pyfusion course.
I am a Registered Massage Therapist, and I found this course to be extremely useful, fun and engaging. The content was organized, detailed and provided a thorough explanation of each exercise and pose. We reviewed goals, anatomy, cautions, and modifications for each exercise and posture as they pertained to the poses.
As a class, we made use of every moment to ensure we were engaging the correct muscles and had awareness of space of our bodies on our mats to execute each exercise correctly. This was extremely useful to me as I have brought this into my treatments and have learned the best way to breakdown each pose to teach my patients so they can benefit from particular exercises for the purpose of strengthening and stretching in a safe and effective manner that is directed for their personal needs.
Thank you, Rhona, for a fun, educational course"

I recently participated in the Pyfusion course given by Rhona Parsons in Prince Rupert and am so happy I did. As always, Rhona went above and beyond any instructor, I have ever had with the amount of information and examples she provided.
I currently teach yoga and although I am a certified Pilates instructor, I have not taught it for many years. I felt that not only did Pyfusion give me some great new ideas for my yoga classes, but it has also awakened my excitement for Pilates again. The information in the notes provided is very well done and very "user-friendly". The explanations and the diagrams of the poses are easy to follow and having done the full class in the course, I feel I got a great feel for the program and am able to now do it on my own.
Being in a small town, there are not a lot of opportunities for us fitness instructors to take courses without traveling far. We are so fortunate to have Rhona, who makes a huge effort to come to Prince Rupert and keep us all motivated and educated!
