My Pilates training with Bruce and his team was such a brilliant experience. I thought long and hard about the commitment of travelling from Sydney to Melbourne for the practical sessions, but Bruce and his team were so welcoming that it felt like an educational vacation!
The follow-up personal mentoring sessions with Bruce via Skype were fantastic, and where I really gained priceless experience. The personal nature and guidance of having a mentor like Bruce, with his eye for detail and supportive approach, really felt like a hand-holding support. I experienced such a personal experience that I know you wouldn’t get from a big training company.
Through Bruce’s motivation and positivity my teaching developed in leaps and bounds, and from the confidence I gained I launched my own business which is now steadily growing. Bruce will always be a mentor to me, and that anyone lucky enough to work with him will be greatly inspired by and be extremely well supported on their individual journey. Thanks Bruce

I met Bruce in 2014 and was instantly drawn to his intuitive and creative way of teaching. This was very new to me, so I began attending regular sessions, and over those early few months I found myself operating with a new level of consciousness. Beginning to bring new awareness to my behavior in relation to my work and business life – was extremely timely because I was in the middle of an 18 month period of a challenging work situation. (Which when I look back now; I actually needed to have!)
There is no doubt that the support from family and friends is important to me, but it was Bruce who showed up as the “voice of reason”. The support Bruce provided helped me figure out the best solution for my situation, gave me the courage to have the difficult conversations, acknowledge how my own behaviors had contributed to the situation, and be willing to address the situation with the clear outcome that living aligned with my values was the most important thing to me.
Many of my conversations with Bruce were based on figuring out ‘what I really wanted’ and what I truly deserved and how I was going to get there. And yes, it feels great to be on the right path again now!
Some of the things I realised about myself in this process were that I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, so I always said ‘yes’ even if it meant I was burning the candle at both ends – putting on a brave face and doing it all! I now know that eventually this lifestyle takes a toll, implodes, and that all the good in my life seemed bad.
Regular coaching conversations with Bruce throughout 2015 (which at times felt rather ruthless!) helped me finally get to the point where I was very ready to confront my situation head on, with clarity that I was coming to this decision for all the right reasons, and was, for the first time, choosing to put myself first!
Bringing my issue to a head was a bitter-sweet moment, but by working with Bruce I had learnt the skills to accept and deal with the circumstances, and take responsibility for my part in the situation. If I didn’t know how to have these sorts of conversations, I STILL don’t think I would have dealt with it!
I can honestly say Bruce has helped me dig deep into the core of what is important to me in my life. There is no doubt he ruffled my feathers – but in such a positive way that it helped me re-activate the pathway of my future to be re-aligned with my values. This leaves me feeling excited about the next steps ahead, instead of dreading going to work each day! What a contrast – that I can’t thank Bruce enough for playing an important role in.
