FAQs

Why do my muscles shake and feel the burn?

When you feel a burning sensation in your muscles, it is a sign that they are working anaerobically (without oxygen). This “burning” is a build up of lactic acid within the muscles, due to muscle fatigue. You will generally have to stop exercising momentarily in order to stop any further build up.

Once you have stopped for a few moments, the sensation will cease and you will be able to continue once again. The stronger your muscles get from regular practice, the longer it will take for this burning sensation to appear (if at all). Muscles can also shake during exercise and this is a sure sign that they are working hard.

This is a good thing but recognise when they are getting too shaky and you are losing proper technique, as it is time to rest when this happens.

"The videos are brilliantly demonstrated and I've gained so much knowledge”

"Just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed the Pilates Mat course. The videos are brilliantly demonstrated and I've gained so much knowledge about teaching from you. I'm a sports massage therapist so teaching is not a skill I've needed to develop and I've been a bit apprehensive about it, but your style of teaching has been a huge encouragement. "

"Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates"

"Emma has helped me recently in so many ways. I have completed her detailed on line courses and feel competent to teach the techniques and exercises straight away after the brilliant videos and instructions. Having had a few issues myself over my teaching and my own business, and loosing some confidence, I contacted Emma who spent time out of her crazy schedule emailing me giving me support and advice which helped so much. Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates and made me believe in myself again. Thank you so much. "

"When I have a doubt she promptly answer to my question"

"Emma Newham is someone who truly enjoys and has a passion for sharing her Pilates knowledge. She has professionality, enthusiasm and care for your well being and also for your preparation as teacher. She is my BarreConcept teacher and she is so friendly and helpful even if long distance take us apart as I'm from Rome, Italy. When I have a doubt she promptly answer to my question. She is my best teacher."

Ms C Ciolli

“Thank you for such clear and detailed instructions and videos”

"I am currently working through your Mat Pilates course and I just wanted to say thank you for such clear and detailed instructions and videos. I did a Pilates course a long time ago but never did my exam, but incorporate elements of Pilates exercises in other fitness classes I teach. The course has been a great refresher and also introduction to new exercises and explanations of why the exercises are done. "

Ms C Patterson

"The course content was invaluable to my teaching repertoire"

"I just finished a course with Emma in Dublin on BarreConcept and I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed a course so much. The course content was invaluable to my teaching repertoire, the days were filled with original and unique teaching methods, which were delivered in a fun, easy to understand manner and Emma was professional and empathetic to every one of us in training."

Ms A Vard

"This is an excellent, very comprehensive course."

"I am thoroughly delighted with Emma and the course. It’s a very good way to learn barre. Emma clearly knows her stuff. I like the design of the website and the structure of the learning tool. This is an excellent, very comprehensive course. I have recommended this course to a couple of my instructor friends. I believe this has to be the best online course I’ve seen. "
