I first started teaching dance and fitness over 30 years ago, in fact I can still remember most of the steps and even the songs of my first class. It was a decision which brought me to where I am now, still challenged and still learning. Over the past 30 years I have gained certification in more than 56 different specialist instructor trainings, including some of the more unusual courses such as rebounding, kangarobics, super-fly-bungee jumping, Ariel yoga, Fitsteps (Ballroom Dancing), Piloxing, Reformer Pilates Level 3 and CCET Somatics Teacher. I am a big believe in continuing education and am currently completing my first of three years as a Somatics therapist as well as my Level 4 Pilates.
In June 2023 VFIT Education became the first Approved YMCA Awards Training Centre in The Netherlands. This exciting news means we now offer:
- YMCA Awards Level 2 Certificate in Group Exercise Instructing: Exercise to Music — Freestyle
- YMCA Awards Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Pilates
- YMCA Awards Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Yoga
Further qualifications will be added to the VFIT Education portfolio in 2024
My current projects include writing and developing Children’s Courses in the field of Pilates, Yoga and Fitness. These courses are for Qualified Practitioners wishing to work with children. I am delighted to share that my first course Little People’s Pilates has been endorsed by both CIMSPA and YMCA Awards with a total of 4 CPD Points.
