We developed this program to provide trained Pilates instructors with a clearer understanding of how to better teach Pilates within a professional, supportive and focused environment.
Through a concise breakdown of selected exercises from all levels participants will
develop strong teaching skills that are defined and progressive.
Emphasis will be placed on:
- A) What is the exercise objective
- B) Where do you look on the body to establish effective cues and correction
- C) What are common disconnections to the exercise
D) How to teach clients to make intelligent movement choices
1) To enhance and further educate participants knowledge on the following teaching tools and approaches:
- verbal skills (effective cueing and correcting)
- tactile cues (appropriate hands on assistance)
- visual (what to look for and where to look)
2) To assist participants in strengthening existing client teaching skills
3) To encourage thoughtful, customized programming that is geared towards the individual client and their particular needs
4) To engage in a dialogue of the interrelationship between client retention and ongoing professional as well as self-development
