Don’t turn your pilates career into ‘hustle and grind’ or into another ‘tick the box’ exercises!
The work 'within' is just as important as the work 'without'! I'm pretty tired of this kind of 'get shit done' attitude where people are now so addicted to having to be in control and be productive all the time that they don't even know themselves!
You don't need to know it all to be confident!! True fulfilment, especially in a teaching profession comes from within, not from the work you produce or the external validation you get or how successful you can make yourself look.
I bet that most of us choose to teach Pilates out of a million other fricken things we could have done because we desire connection, meaning, belonging and community! We want to lead and we want to help!
This community and connection we are trying to create in the spaces we teach in starts from within! The hustle and the self awareness need to go hand in hand for you to find purpose. So there is no point 'getting shit done' if you don't know why you are doing the shit and if the shit has no meaning! Otherwise your life is one big fricken tick box exercises of pleasing others.
Letting yourself enjoy the process, the messy unfolding of your goals takes courage and feels fucking rebellious in this fast paced world where we can get instant gratification and easily take shortcuts! Show up for yourself, build resilience and discover who you are and what is most important to you! There are no shortcuts!
A 'thoughtful teaching performance' as a Pilates Teacher, pulled out at the perfect time might just be the thing that helps your clients be in the present moment, so maybe it's time we all unleashed our inner performer. Not for the sake of attention but for the sake of building engagement!

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.
