Here’s What Our Members Have To Say
“I have been doing every every single one that I can make it, and just started going through the recorded masterclasses. I find the classes invaluable. I learned so much from all the wonderful trainers. They all have different style of teaching and cueing. It has definitely expand my repertoire for pilates exercise and make it more interesting. Agree with Shani that more recordings will be helpful. Sometimes I will replay the recordings to "digest" certain moves or layering so that the moves stick. Well, that's the problem with old brain, take a while to learn new tricks!”Pei ChenBreathe Education Graduate

“I still do most of the Masterclasses though already got my certificate. I love Rachel’s classes because she uses a lot of props and it’s versatile and her layering is soooo good. I love Cloes classes because she does original repertoire plus prenatal or beginners classes which is very helpful in studying and she has such a bubbly personality I love Belindas classes because her cueing is perfect you don’t need to look at the screen you can just listen to her and do the exercise it’s definitely great in learning. I love Heaths classes because OMG he is sooo strong and his classes are high intense and real challenge and perfect in layering too. I love Sharrmans classes cause he always gives you something different apart from the original Rep(great stuff) and I love Venus’s classes because I just like her personality and her layering and cueing are great too. All the Masterclasses have been really very helpful thank you BE for them”Yana PearsonMelbourne, Australia
“I have also loved them! Even though I had watched a bunch of other online classes during my cert, having the option to now continue to observe and do classes with Breathe educated trainers helps to solidify all that we have been taught, esp. in terms of external cuing, not cuing breathing which is more specific to this training than others.Laura DiazQueensland, Australia
I have particularly enjoyed seeing the trainers creative processes, where they have alluded to the original repertoire, or used layering options & graded exposure to build strength over time. It's been great experiencing such a difference in teaching methods from different trainers and learning what feels enjoyable and fun in class, also what it feels like to be gently nurtured & encouraged, while at the same time also being kicked in the ass! Then there's other classes that feel like an ass whooping from the get-go, but it's so high energy and fun that you just want to keep up! Haha! I think it's great! I agree with everyone here in saying it would be beneficial to have more recordings available to observe in our own time. I would personally like to see more classes or demonstrations of the Diploma repertoire, which I understand might not work so much as a class other than the one already available due to the restrictions in available equipment, but perhaps if it was more of a recording? For example classes on the wunda chair or caddilac where it might not be as common to observe as a group class?”
“I love the detailed progressions. But probably most of all I love Heath talking to Heath. I have done a lot of training across many disciplines and every course touches on the importance of communication. So simple direct language, precise movement cues, that sort of thing, but Breathe is the only course that I've done where it is clearly demonstrated. I know in a non-Covid world we would gain exposure to language by observing in-studio clinical sessions, but the ability to re-watch sessions that specifically focus on language is so valuable. This is my biggest take away.”Anjali MudraMelbourne, Australia
“I have been doing as many masterclasses as I can and I have found them extremely valuable for my learning. It is very helpful to hear the trainers explain how they might modify an exercise for a specific type of class as well as various cues that may be effective or things to avoid. It is very different from attending classes because we are being educated on how to teach. Also all of the repertoire is represented because the masterclasses will often reflect what the trainers are teaching their students in the tutorials. Pregnancy mods are often referred to which helps us to remember them and helps with out prenatal programming. The only improvement I can think of is to please have more of them.”Sally CarewMelbourne, Australia
Meet Your Trainers
I have been teaching movement for the last 20 years, Pilates for the last 13. I’ve spent over 20,000 hours teaching Pilates in large group reformer, small group clinical and 1:1 settings.
Since 2011, I have worked with Breathe Education designing and delivering Certificate and Diploma. My partner and I run White Dog Studio in Footscray (Melbourne) and I run a virtual instructor focused studio via contrologycollective.com.au
My great passion as a movement educator is helping trainers to deepen their knowledge while simultaneously finding simplicity in their teaching and understanding.
I believe that everyone is entitled to a positive movement experience – our job as movement facilitators is to make people feel empowered, strong, and joyous!
I believe that the greatest gift I can give students in this course is the gift of self-confidence and knowledge. I don’t want to give you a curriculum to just memorise, I want to work with you to give you the tools you need to really understand the skills of teaching movement. From there, you can go anywhere!
I have been practicing yoga and pilates for 15 years and I only get more enthusiastic about it as time goes on. I hold a Certificate IV in Pilates with Breathe Education as well as my Diploma of Clinical Pilates. I am also Barre Body and APPI Pilates certified, I have my 200hr YTT with Byron Yoga and am a Registered Nurse in an Orthopaedic hospital.
I have been teaching Pilates for over a decade, and hold a degree in Exercise Science. I am currently studying Physical Therapy in Southern California.
I love teaching and mentoring students at Breathe because we foster each individual’s growth while promoting the current best evidence-based practice. It is an honour to guide and witness our students grow and develop not only into top-notch instructors but also incredible critical thinkers.
In between my studies and teaching Pilates I love to stay active, travel, and go scuba diving with my peers. My family at home consists of my partner, daughter, two dogs, and our bird. My favorite quote is, “Nothing will work unless you do” by Maya Angelou which you may hear me say from time to time in my classes and Masterclasses.”
Naomi Di Fabio
I have been working in the dance and fitness world for over 20 years teaching many different movement formats including dance, a variety of fitness concepts, yoga and of course, Pilates. As a dancer, Pilates seemed a natural stepping stone but what I had experienced early on was slow and boring. It didn’t resonate with me and how I like to move and teach others. A few years later, I realized the wealth of benefits Pilates had to offer and went against the grain to teach in my own dynamic and engaging style.It is my strong belief that whatever we teach, we must do it in a way that is authentic to ourselves and that is what will capture the attention of our gang.
I am based in the UK and have also lived in Italy and South Africa. I’ve been fortunate to have travelled extensively through my career so far as an international fitness presenter and educator. I’ve worked for vast lifestyle brands such as Zumba Fitness, I’ve created my own licensed programs and managed boutique studios. Through all of this, I continued to teach regular weekly classes in person and online. You can find out more about me and what I offer on naomidifabio.com.
What I love most when teaching is challenging people do things with their body that they never thought they’d be able to do. Being able to share their excitement and being part of their journey gives me such joy.As a trainer of new teachers I have the opportunity not only to help you move your body, but also to grow a business and new life for yourself. What a privilege! I cannot wait to be your biggest cheerleader as you join us here at Breathe Education.
I started my career as a professional contemporary dancer and fell in love with Pilates along the way. I have been teaching Pilates for over a decade now and have owned my studio, MatWorks Pilates in Auckland, New Zealand, for over 7 years. I have taught large group mat and reformer extensively, as well as run small group and 1:1 clinical sessions. I completed the Diploma of Clinical Pilates with Breathe Education and my teaching skills sky rocketed from this experience.
I’m so excited to share my lived experience of this with you all, and journey through some amazing brain exploding emoji moments with you. I strongly believe in empowering people through movement and in the impact we can have over the whole person in front of us. We are so much more than just Pilates Instructors and I look forward to helping you reach your potential as a fearless mover and movement facilitator.
My Pilates story began as a hobby and turned into a passion. I discovered Pilates when I was a frazzled stay-at-home mom of two very small children. I religiously attended two mat classes per week for three years, in which time I regained my strength, energy, and confidence. My Pilates practice had such a profound impact on my health and wellbeing that I decided to become a Pilates instructor, even though my university training and prior professional experience was in social work and mental health.
In 2015, I enrolled in a comprehensive Pilates training program and haven’t looked back. Since that time, I have also earned a National Pilates Certification designation and a second Pilates Certification from Breathe Education. In addition to my role as a trainer at Breathe, I also teach pilates at a local studio and hospital in Seattle, Washington, USA, where I live with my husband and two kids.
Pilates is so much more than movement. Pilates is a source of joy, health, rehabilitation, community, and self-efficacy. It is my honor and a privilege to be a pilates instructor as well as to be an educator and mentor to those who have chosen this vocation.
