What the Fitness Pros Say about Enlighten Your Body

“I really enjoyed the deeper philosophical aspects of mind-body connections, student attitudes, learning styles, discussion of common misalignments, cueing, and using Pilates. This course was perfect. It brought together the pertinent issues of today, along with philosophy. I didn’t know it, but I’ve been looking for this course for years! Excellent!”

"I really liked the attention to detail, the great explanations, and that the course was very thorough yet not too complicated. I have been teaching yoga, Pilates, and body sculpting classes for quite a while and your philosophy on how to teach our students is very refreshing. We are not there to just get a workout, but to help others achieve a better understanding of their bodies and minds, and to learn how exercise plays a significant role everyday in their lives. Thank you!"
B. Kaiser, Surfside Beach, CA

L. Duranza, Aurora, CO

I also learned better knowledge of coping with day to day stress and ways to assist other in the same. I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It is something that is near and dear to me and it increased my awareness. I can’t wait to share what I have learned with others.”
J. Edwards, Granbury, TX

“I started with this course just to gain the credits. But I was so impressed with Linda, she opened my eyes to see life in a different way. I really and truly enjoyed this course. I am going to reread the book again just so I can keep what I learned fresh in my head.”
K Kaiser, Cody, WY


"This was the most interesting course for CE credits that I have ever taken! Nice presentation!"
C. Bottalla, Marco Island, FL


“I learned a tremendous amount from the course, and through your guidance came to some significant insights about my own alignment issues. The most important discovery was the experience of ‘letting go’ to gravity – that feeling and the corresponding intention to allow spirit (the weightless source) to play a role in balancing your life. Thank you very much for your knowledge and sharing it in such a way that it helped me to deepen my own practice. I’m sure it will make me a better teacher.”
M. Ricketson, Medfield, MA


"I teach both yoga and Pilates...the cueing introduced is wonderful. I love the concept of visualization and relaxing into poses."
B. Helfer, Columbus, OH


"I work with a lot of people with chronic back and hip pain...the course gave good ways to help teach individuals how to "turn off" and tune into their own bodies through the practical exercises presented. The course strengthened my professional and personal understanding that an individual can change faulty patterns of use and become pain free. "The section on the psoas in the book was excellent!!! I will use this section specifically in educating and encouraging my clients to become pain-free."
G. Whittemore, Fredericksburg, VA

"I learned much more about how Yoga applies to somatic awareness, and anatomical misalignments and the 3 stages students go through to learn. I have been teaching for about 7 years now or more, and I found that I really had to read and re-read and apply to learn. The course was challenging even though I thought I knew that content and had experience. "
S. Mitchell, Gibsonia, PA

S. Bertelmann, Kamuela, HI


"This course is fantastic! I loved it! I have been using it in my class. I am applying balancing out all my exercises so that nobody goes away feeling sore or not balanced. It's terrific! I have also noticed that I get out of bed differently, noticing how I put more weight on one side...even while I am sitting writing to you now on the computer, I can see I am sitting more on one side...oops, better correct that now.. ha ha! Thank you so much for this course, I loved it! I will be back again for the update. Take care.”
V.Vadeboncoeur, Cathedral City, CA


"Linda-Christy Weiler, M.S. has done a beautiful job of combining the concepts of Yoga, The Feldenkrais Method and Pilates Mat work. I am sure at some point I will use some of the information from the DVD in a Type Specific Class. "
J. Cremer, Salem, OR


"I learned to cue by bony landmarks and to reinforce the proper form by turning students away from the mirror so that they can "feel" the movements and poses. I gained more technical knowledge about the body, but the most valuable information I learned from this course was the psychology of learning. I think the course was exceptional and I know I will use this as a resource over and over again."
A. Kinsey, Orange Park, FL


"This course is based on anatomy, psychology, and spirituality – the perfect combination for the human evolution!"
G. Anderson, Miami, FL

S. Wessel, Trussville, AL

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I gained a deeper understanding of the mind-body concept. I learned about the difference between performing an exercise or pose based on modeling and feeling an exercise or ose based on somatic awareness. I discovered how spiritual an effective mind-body connection can be. From the description of this course I was expecting something different. But I was thrilled I didn't get what I'd expected! It's also not just about mind-body techniques, but has a deep spiritual component. I loved it! Yoga practice will never be the same! Thank you.
