Who we are is how we teach. Knowing who you are as a person is the first step to stress free pilates class planning and programming for Pilates teachers. Where do you sit on this clas planning spectrum?
The 'best' pieces of pilates teaching advice never worked for me. And my guess is they certainly don’t work for a lot of other Pilates teachers either.
I loved filming with Laura! Her warmth and authenticity are evident when ever in her presence and this certainly filters down through the entire studio and everything that Rise Pilates represents. I’m sure instructors and studio owners are going to get a lot out of these interviews at what ever state of there PIlates journey!
It was such a full circle experience for me to interview Miriam Jones. Miriam was the reason I decided to become a pilates teacher and I know there are many of you out there who she has done the same for. Honestly I should have just walked in to this Undercover Instructor series with a GoPro on my head because basically everything that comes from Miriam is considered and thought out and then applied to how it will best help you. She has an insane amount of experience training teachers ranging from Pilates to Barre and has just recently opened the doors of her mentor program and home studio.
How often do you clean up your cuing as a Pilates instructor? Our words matter but sometimes we go into auto pilot mode when we are teaching without ever reflection on whether or not those words are having the impact we want on our clients.
This all starts from learning how to build awareness in to your own self practice and teaching instead of this kind of regurgitation of information quick fix, quick win approach. it's not for the faint hearted.
If you want depth, if you want fulfilment, if you want to reach your potential and not cut corners it takes hard work!
We need to learn how to take what we have learnt in our training or from our mentors and then be willing to do the inner work, the outer work, do the experimenting, sit with the messy stuff and the failures and then repeat it over and over again so that we truely and understand it! don’t just copy or fake it!

Do you feel like an imposter when you are standing in front of a class full of people eager to learn from you? Are you hiding when you teach pilates or not really showing up as 100% your authentic self?
