'The course was wonderful. The material was presented beautifully by Nancy Myers. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to other instructors. The CoreAlign is such a valuable supplement to the Pilates work.'

'Nancy was an excellent teacher- she presented the information clearly, concisely, and in a way that it remained interesting and fun for the whole weekend. Thank you! It was great to have the mix of movement, teaching, and a bit of very applicable lecture. I also appreciated the way she focused the workshop on each of our needs- taking the time to address body issues as they came up.'

'I thoroughly enjoyed this module. Nancy Myers is an incredible Teacher. Her knowledge of the human anatomy is incredible. I felt completely supported and nurtured throughout the weekend.'

'Nancy is amazing! So much knowledge. Great class, school and super fun environment. I love meeting other students that are from other countries within the bridge program. I had a great time.'

'I am so looking forward to working on the CoreAlign for my own benefit and for my clients'! Nancy is an exceptional teacher with so much knowledge to share. I can't wait to study with her again for the CoreAlign 2 training. Thank you.'

'Nancy is fun, inspiring, and very skilled. She kept the group moving, but took time to break down key exercises and address everyones questions. The materials are excellent! Thanks to Balanced Body for another amazing learning experience!'

'Nancy Myers is absolutely phenomenal!! Her passion and knowledge is inspiring. She doesn't just dish out choreography she truly explains the science behind the specific movements. Her side-bars dwell deep into whats going on in the body as it sequences through a movement. Instructors walk away not only learning new Core Align exercises, they receive a better understanding of functional movement as a whole!'

'Nancy was awesome. Looking forward to taking Level II in Feb.'

'So much of the work of Joseph Pilates avoided vertical integration into standing as most of the apparatus puts the student in contact with a surface. With the CoreAlign, the body's nervous system is challenged and stimulated into exploring upright dynamic posture through contact with the feet and hands working stability and mobility actions in movement.'

'Excellent class! It was the perfect amount of material, perfectly presented. It was extra special to learn it in such a small group. Nancy is a movement goddess- not only did I learn how to teach the material, I learned a lot about what is going on right now in my own body. I have already recommend this course to Pilates instructors I know with access to CoreAlign. I recently have taken Bodhi and Barre as well and I have to say, I love the consistency across all modules in the formatting of Balanced Body classes and I think it really works. Five stars!'
