STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor Shruti Patel tells us more about her journey to become an internationally recognised Pilates teacher taking all her certification courses and workshops at Real Pilates, the Merrithew™ Licensed Training Centre in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).
I want to reiterate how fantastic I found the FA course. I wasn't sure what to expect at all and was so pleasantly surprised. I went in with virtually no knowledge of FA and have come out having learnt so much. The instructor was exceptional and explained everything so brilliantly. At no point did I feel out of my depth and even when I was confused, I never felt foolish or unable to ask questions which I think is hugely important for an absolute beginner. Having completed this, I'm now very much looking forward to the next one and much less apprehensive at embarking on further learning. - Abi W.
The Instructor Trainer made the course pass by so fast - the 5 hours every day seemed short and that made me love the material. I'd definitely take another course with her. - Layal J.

I took Paul’s Fascia course last year and have been doing classes with him since last September. I am completely hooked and find that my body has never felt so good and has never been as strong. With Paul’s dynamic classes I was able to undertake climbing Kilimanjaro in July! This was a fantastic experience as I went with 44 other challengers from Gulf for Good and together we were able to raise over 250 000 Dirhams for the Enjoro school in Arusha and the Larchfield Children’s home in Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania. I am very keen to take the Fascia course again so that I can hear the information again as I find there is so much to take in. - Patsy B.
