Gemma's Pilates and Movement Training
About this pro
14 years in business
I have been astudent of Gemma Pagliei for the past 6 years and at 80, she has changed my life. Everyone tells me I do not have the posture or movements of an 80 year old. She is patient and kind and like all great teachers she is never tired of searching for a way to communicate with you.Sep 15, 2014
I have been Gemma's student for at least 7 years and have obviously found her to be a wonderful teacher or I would not have kept with her for so long. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and tailors exercises to my needs when necessary. I have full faith in her abilities and training and she makes our sessions lots of fun. I am basically not a person who enjoys exercise, but Gemma definitely makes it worth my while.Sep 11, 2014
- What types of customers have you worked with?Teaching Pilates and Yoga private and semi-private lessons. I teach people of all ages, occupations and backgrounds. Pilates and yoga are wonderful types of movement training for everyone, regardless if you exercise regularly or not at all.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure the person you are considering studying with is fully certified in the discipline they are teaching, and a member of the professional organization for that field. For example, a Pilates Teacher should be a member of the Pilates Method Alliance and a yoga teacher should be a member of the Yoga Alliance. These organizations have standards for teacher training, which help assure a teacher has been properly trained.
