'(Angela) is a phenomenal teacher as she is easy to talk to, enthusiastic, very open to questions/discussion and she really shows that she cares and is dedicated in making her students the most knowledgeable and successful movement therapist they can be.' - Sabrina from Dashwood, Ontario, Canada
Hi! I'm Angela Pereira, the founder, a course creator, and one of the instructors here at First Line Education Inc.
I've worked as a kinesiologist in private practice for over 25 years. I became a yoga teacher in 2015, and then a holistic nutritionist in 2018.
When I was 23, just before finishing my kinesiology degree at the University of Waterloo, I opened Northern Kinetics Fitness and Rehabilitation Centre in Bancroft, Ontario - about half way between Toronto and Ottawa. This was before there was internet!
My first clinical space was a 400 square foot space in a medical building - with no windows - and tucked behind an elevator shaft!
In this tiny space, I had to figure out how to talk about what a kinesiologist was, promote myself as the new kid in town, find enough clients to pay my bills, and figure out how to run a bricks and mortar business with a growing staff.
No joke - my first treatment table was a pile of milk crates with an exercise mat on top, all covered by a white bed sheet!READ MORE OF MY STORY HERE
After taking one course, you will want to take another – trust me. I can see that there is so much I can learn from the First Line Education team that would make me a better health care provider. - Assessment From The Ground Up student
We look forward to meeting you or seeing you again in an upcoming course!
This group is open to anyone who teaches about movement - to groups, classes, and in one-on-one settings.
This community is a meeting place to share client wins and frustrations, a safe space to discuss practice questions and client challenges, a forum to give (and get!) client referrals, and a place to ask for business advice.
Come join us! We'd love to meet you!
