Customer Testimonials

When I tried the Pilates class in Hanoi, I found it great, it changed my way of thinking about using core muscles in practice.So I decided to take the Pilates International Teacher Training course. In just 5 short school days, I learned about anatomy, body parts, how to write lessons and guide students.I am very happy to be teaching Pilates, I bring joy, happiness, how to use core muscles and be safe in Pilates.

Huong Thien Trieu

Pilates Teacher

I studied Mat I & Mat II at Zenith 1 year ago. After that, I continuously practice myself and teach. When teaching, I often combine teaching one session of Yoga and Pilates. Or combine core lessons in yoga exercises to strengthen core muscles. I feel fortunate to study with Miss Ory because of her professionalism, methodology and detail. She has meticulous and detailed instructions not only how to practice but also how to guide students, ensuring safety in practice. I recommend that you study Mat I immediately in Mat II so that the knowledge is general, complete and thorough in teaching Pilates on the mat and you should go to the practice center before the course to understand how to use breath in Pilates. .
