Testimonials - QiBounding Online Classes


Hello Sylvia, I love, love, loved this class! I especially appreciated knowing “why” I was doing each exercise. How it was helping improve my lymph flow, or increase my bone density, and so on. So often we just do our exercises because we are told they are “good for us”. I could feel the difference actually understanding how my body works and how I was helping to improve my vitality in so many different ways! This also allowed me to choose which ones were most helpful to my now personal situation!
Most of the exercises were easy to follow and do, which is nice for someone who is also heavy like me! Some also had simple and advanced levels so you could do more as you got better! Sylvia, you gave us such a nice sample so we could then create our own program depending on what would serve us best.
I really enjoyed the program and would certainly recommend it to people who want excellent guidance on how to rebound. When I began on my own, just watching a few videos, I was making some important mistakes, like pronating and not having my feet in the proper stance, doing more harm than good! Thank you again for a really Excellent class! Oh and you answered any questions I had as well! You Rock!Morgine Jurdan, Washington, June 2015

I’m very happy to have found Sylvia and her rebounding technique when browsing through internet, as it’s very gentle, respectful for the body, and as Sylvia is a very gentle and kind person with a big heart. Her way of explaining and teaching is not just giving knowledge, but a transmission of what she is living.
Thank you so much, Sylvia, for helping us all. Marianne, Switzerland (June 2014)


Hello Sylvia, I wanted to thank you for such a beautifully structured and informative online course. I have gone from beginner to being totally confident on my bellicon during the last few weeks and in a way that allows me to now do what I want with no risk of injury. You explain the “nuts and bolts” of how to rebound correctly and the lessons build on each other both knowledge-wise and fitness-wise. Best of all you have taught me what FUN rebounding can be.

Thank you for a wonderful and well worthwhile course.

Kind Regards   Clare Mckensey, Auckland, New Zealand


Thank you for the greatest online experience ever. I have taken many online courses (audio and or video) on yoga, meditation, workout programs etc and I found that your course was by far the best – comprehensive with education and demonstration and the best bang for the buck ever. You are a treasure!
The classes have been so much fun and so educational. When I think to myself "I wonder what tomorrow's class will be?" I'm never surprised when Sylvia teaches and explains the perfect thing, like balance. Sylvia always knows the next step. The structured class is fabulous and so perfect for learning. You can see many videos online and even in QiBounding but learning in this structured environment, building upon each lesson, cannot be beat! I'm so excited I just signed up for Level 2. What a great deal. And, if and when the DVD's come out, I will be the first person to buy them. I believe purchasing the Bellicon Rebounder and taking these classes is the most helpful thing I could do for my being (body and mind) in my 65th year. Thank you Sylvia for the best experience ever!

I love taking classes with Sylvia.  All 3 classes I took with her were great! Rebounding is such a playful time for me – a way to relax and get back to the enjoyment of movement I felt as a child. I feel exhilerated after I finish a lession on my rebounder – so much energy!  And I am geting stronger too! Although it is an online class, Sylvia is very personable and warm.  I always feel as though she is right there with me.

Each class session has careful instruction with Sylvia giving detailed training about proper alignment. She is so low – key and calm that it makes it a very relaxing. She taught us how to listen to what our bodies tell us we need. I now know when to push myself and when to rest or do a different or limited movement.    


Sylvia always keeps the videos available for a month or so after the class ends which allows me to re-do the exercises or to catch up if I could not participate at all days. During the actual class sessions, any questions or problems we are experiencing can be, if desired, addressed in our group posting area (Chatroom). You don’t have to post if you don’t like that kind of thing, but it is so helpful to get advice and encourgement. It is also nice to be able to help someone else out. If you want to though, you can always just read others have experiences and learn that way.


Sylvia is there for all our questions and she offers insights into our practice too.  It is so enjoyable to get support and motivation!!! I have had problems keeping up a consistent practice in the past, but by taking these classes, I feel that I can now be consistent on my own. I have the knowledge and motivation. Sylvia has helped us build our own practice of dynamicism – that is – exercises with very vigorous moves with low key movements intersperced to avoid burn-out and gain maximum results. In just 15 minutes,  I can now do my own very vigorous but varied practice today. My mood has lifted and I have a lot of energy.  I am good on my own,but I really look forward to learning more. Sign me up for the next class, Sylvia!

Hello Sylvia, Your lessons are amazing and go beyond of everything I was hoping for. Thank you for the great knowledge you are sharing and making bouncing fun.
Heike W., Massachusetts (April 2014)

Sylvia,
I have just completed your June/July 2014 Level 1 and Level 2 online rebounding classes.  They were both delightful experiences. The Level 2 classes provided an opportunity to experience many varied and challenging rebounding exercise options.  Your personal approach helped a lot.  The experience was similar to a private class with you.  Your chat room gave me the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences with other class members and receive your guidance.  Thanks to your classes, I'm off to a great start with my rebounding experience. Sincerely,
Joe Waddell, The Villages, Florida -July 7, 2014

I have just completed the Level 1 workshop and I feel incredibly grateful to Sylvia for offering such a wonderful and interesting course.  I was amazed at the sheer amount of information that Sylvia provided but all of it was relevant and important.  Whenever you invest in a specialised piece of equipment like a bellicon Rebounder you want to know as much as you can about it and use it to help your body in the best possible way.  This workshop does that and I personally believe that bellicon should include the workshop for everyone buying a rebounder.  I loved my rebounder before but now, each and everyday I see and feel my body becoming stronger and my pain becoming more manageable.  These things aren't supposed to be possible but with your bellicon and the right course, they are.  I cannot recommend this course highly enough, it is the partner to your new bellicon.

Thank you for the lessons,  and  for showing me that there is more to rebounding  than just bouncing.  You are a wonderful instructor.  The videos and drawings of how rebounding benefits the body are a great tools in explaining what goes on inside of our bodies when we are rebounding.

I am always concerned with proper form whenever I exercise and in your class I have learned so much more than I could have imagined.

Since the completion of the classes I have been  using my rebounder more than ever before.  I feel more confident with what and how I am using my bellicon.

Sincerely and forever bouncing in good health!

Kimi Pulliam Joliet, IL



Sylvia, I am learning so much from your Online Rebounding Class. I am very glad I signed up for it. You are a great teacher and have such a nice manner and lovely accent too. So glad I have a bellicon and have you for a teacher!
Deleyne W, UT (September 2014)
The QiBounding Online classes have been wonderful. I didn't realize the versatility of the rebounder! Most importantly, I appreciate the classes on form.  It has made all the difference for me to know about posture and where to put my feet. You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you so much!  Julie Bunce, Caifornia (September 2014)

Hi Sylvia, I just finished taking the Level 1 and 2 classes and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the classes. I learned alot of different moves and routines that I can now use in my daily workouts. The variety is such that I can put together a great number of routines depending on my needs for the day. I never would have thought of so many different ways to use the rebounder on my own..so thank you for the easy to follow lessons and direction on proper form. I hope to take another class for in the future.
Best regards,

Hi Sylvia, I am so glad to have participated in your Level I and II Online Workshop.  Both workshops were extremely helpful to me in understanding how to use my bellicon to best advantage.  It was so helpful to learn how to position and use my feet for the different types of bouncing.  I never would have figured that out on my own!   The core strengthening exercises are actually fun and I have found the Dynamic Ladder idea very useful in constructing a workout.  I haven't used the relaxation exercises very much yet but am hoping to incorporate those in the future.  They felt wonderful when I tried them.
In short, the videos were fun to watch, very informative, but best of all extremely useful.  Sylvia, as always, is a very engaging and positive teacher.

I’m so glad I decided to sign up for the QiBounding Online Classes when I purchased my Bellicon through QiBounding recently. I learned so much about my body, proper techniques and so much more, and have come to appreciate my bellicon purchase even more! The information is invaluable and the best part is that I could do these classes in the comfort of my own home at my convenience. And it felt like I was having a private lesson with Sylvia. I highly recommend the classes. Thank you Sylvia for your knowledge and encouragement!

Hello Sylvia! I did so much benefit from your online classes. I so enjoyed learning about all the benefits of rebounding and the specific exercises to apply for specific results.  You are a knowledgeable and apt teacher and you made the learning fun! Thank you for encouraging me to take the classes.  I am ever grateful you suggested them!

Dear Sylvia. I am learning so much from your Online class. I’m asking questions I would have never even thought to ask. We all truly appreciate you. Wanda Burns Brandon, MS - February 2014

After such rich content and in so short a time, I feel totally confident in having a safe rebounding practice that I now have for life. Sylvia's instruction is professional yet warm and encouraging. Her level of expertise and experience is obvious and no question goes unanswered.  Though this workshop can be taken from anywhere in the world, it feels like you're having 1-on-1 lessons in your own home, learning form the best and having fun as well. In a word: Brilliant!  Nina S. Australia, December 2013

Great lesson from start to finish, a balance of theory and practice - beautifully illustrated and explained. The classes surpassed by far my expectations.   S.T. Minnesota, December 2013

In person training:

  It was definitely worth traveling from Indiana to visit you "live" for a private rebounding session, Sylvia. I learned so much, not only about perfecting my bouncing technique and adding more effective, efficient moves to my routines, I also gained additional information regarding the health benefits of rebounding. I so enjoyed your gracious, kind and sincere hospitality. Thank you again, Sylvia, for helping me select the correct Rebounder, but more than that, for supporting me throughout my transition period.

Participant's responses to the Online Classes in August 2012


Sylvia's gentle spirit and caring nature shaped this lovely workshop.  It begins with the basics then builds on those.  Sylvia is always on hand to answer questions and offer encouragement.  Highly recommended - both for those new to rebounding and those looking for fresh ideas.  

Helen A, Buena Vista AR

 

Sylvia, Your knowledge, patience and kindness throughout the workshop made me feel you were right beside my, while rebounding. After the first few days I was looking forward to rebound, watch your videos and read the themes. I truly enjoyed them and learned how to use the Bellicon with your help.  A.B. Elk Grove, CA

 

I enjoyed the creative assignments, the emphasis on precise subtlety of form and positive feedback. The format for the workshop was well thought out and organized.  

Barbara R., Sandy Hook, CT

 

I greatly enjoyed this class.  I was pleasantly surprised by everything you can do with a rebounder.  It sure gives you a zest for life.  The information on diet was a big thing for me because I want to incorporate healthy eating with rebounding.  Thanks so very much!

Kristie M., Monte Vista, CO


I really enjoyed learning the exercises and the correct techniques on the rebounder. It made me think about how to safely execute the exercises without doing harm to my joints. It has also set me on the track for doing rebounding as regular habit. Carla M., Raleigh, NC


I thought Sylvia did a good job in putting this workshop together.  I found her method very interesting and eye-opening.  PP Decatur, AL


I felt as if I had a one on one training session with Sylvia each time I watched a video.

I’ll remember Sylvia's calm and encouraging instruction.  Julia V.,Dallas TX
