- You really did a fantastic
job... As you know, I am in love with the Wunda Chair...and today I decided
to review the entire section and all exercises. WOW....it was so refreshing
to re-read the purpose, contraindications, and think of my clients needs and
practice the exercise myself and then to decide if I should teach it and what
springs to use and why.
- Ivon, any person that
is interested in becoming a teacher would be a fool not to see you! THANK
YOU for the gifts you have given me...the gift of learning and becoming a
better person. Pilates had changed the course of my life and I thank you,
Julie (our Certification Agent) and Rande (my Mentor). I wish you a wonderful
- When I get these nice
messages....(My client Vanessa, Is coming THREE times a week!!!!)
She wrote; “Thank you so much for this week! I can't believe I made
it. Your teaching is improving by leaps and bounds. I enjoy every minute I'm
there. And my body is feeling the results. Thank You!!!!!!! And again I can't
say thanks enough for your coaching.”
- Hi Ivon! I can only
think of you and Julie, who made me the Pilates Instructor that I am today!
- THANK YOU for your knowledge
and inspiration! You are the best! -Karina Merkin
- Training under Ivon
Dahl has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. He has a very
special and unique gift. He is armed with a very wide range of knowledge and
has impressive credentials. But most especially, Ivon has the rare and life
changing gift of being able to articulate his thoughts and lessons into the
language that his students can totally understand. He is brilliant when it
comes to the way he is able to convey his message, lessons, and technique.
- There is a saying that
states, “If a child cannot learn the way we teach, maybe we
should teach the way they learn.”-Ignatio Estrada
Ivon has the ability to take all of his years of experience with bodybuilding,
dance, and Pilates, combined with his multiple degrees and change his way
of thinking so that he can connect on a level that allows the students an
ease of learning. This is a sign of a truly great teacher. I will be so blessed
if I can apply this to each and every one of my clients.
- One on one Pilates training
places those involved in a setting of close personal rapport. The opportunity
for meaningful discussion is there for the taking. I found this to be an additional
perk to my training, which is why my closing comment is simply that Ivon Dahl
is so much more than just a Master Instructor!
- I'd like to thank you
once again for being such a wonderful teacher and mentor. -Cynthia d'Aries
- Thank you so much for
your teachings. I am always coming back to your texts and finding new meaning
and value. And I'm glad to have this chance to express your continued impact.
- I thought you'd like to know, I recently gained two new clients who had
saught me out because their former instructor had been certified by you :)
They swear that YOUR trainers are the best! - S.S.
- Please know that I am impressed with your dedication to and expertise in
your field, and will be pleased to recommend your services in the future.
Sincerely yours, Vera Gretchyn Marino, Attorney Pro Hac Vice
