“TEACHING FOR SUCCESS”
Pilates plus is a comprehensive Pilates teacher training that takes you further than any other program:
- First, we teach you the entire classical repertoire, but also teach you how to modify the exercises to meet your students’ individual needs.
- Second, we integrate the study of anatomy into each exercise so you know why, not just how the movement works.
- Third, we teach you the skills necessary to teach at the highest levels. a teacher needs to be able to guide a student trough cueing and to understand the special communications skills unique to Pilates.
Our Pilates mat program teaches a classical approach to Pilates mat with no levels. Modifications will be taught with beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, to meet each practitioner’s needs. This structure allows each person to fully develop his/her Pilates practice. The repertoire can be taught regardless of the level of the client or class.
WE TEACH YOU THE WHY
Our program is dedicated to producing highly educated and mindful Pilates instructors. We teach our instructors the goal of each Pilates mat exercise. In learning this critical element, our instructors are able to develop an in-depth knowledge of the purpose behind what they are teaching and why. This allows them to mindfully and systematically structure sessions, and to facilitate an environment in which their clients are able to learn and grow.
THE BUSINESS OF PILATES
We believe that in order to be a successful Pilates instructor, one must also understand Pilates as a business. Our program teaches the fundamentals of the Pilates business, as it relates to either being a teacher and/or studio owner.
Starting from the first contact with a potential client, we walk you through the process of developing a solid and lasting client relationship. We dive into group and private sessions and how each requires a different teaching approach.
For both the business owner and employee, it is important to learn the basics of the Mind Body software program; for business reports and for tracking progress and growth. Social media, marketing, branding, scheduling, mentoring, and continuing education are all elements amongst the curriculum that we teach and develop as a part of the business portion of the program.
Our program believes that the cornerstone of creating successful Pilates instructors is ongoing support. Because there is a lot of information to absorb, teacher training programs can be quite overwhelming. For this reason, we offer continued support to our instructors even after they have completed our program.
We offer mentoring both in the studio and by/via online sessions. The online sessions offer accessibility to our instructors regardless of where they are located. We pride ourselves on being accessible and supportive to our instructors during and after the educational process.
