I have been taking the pilates rehab course for the last few months & have learned so much.  It is one hour once a week so I am able to digest all the information before the next lecture.  I am growing more confident in my anatomy & in dealing with injuries that I commonly see in my clients. Zeina is a great teacher & I highly recommend taking the pilates rehab course.

The opportunity to study with Zeina, was an honor. Her training program was very thorough from practice to anatomy to the history of Pilates. Zeina was very generous of time, spirit and knowledge for the zillions of questions that I asked regarding any part of the curriculum.
