The 'best' pieces of Pilates advice never worked for me...
Learn the repertoire, finesse your technique, stay on top of the latest science, practice, practice and more practice, listen to the experts, fake it if you don’t feel confident and get a good mentor.
This was the model that I thought would help me be a confident, successful teacher.
All of this is most definitely essential to learning how to teach! It’s essential to learning anything really but this is not what made me confident or changed my class numbers from 4 and 5 to booked out through winter and it's certainly not what made me feel joyful and fulfilled while teaching.
There is another piece of the puzzle that is so often underestimated, so often completely left out of the picture, to the point that instructors arrive at the 'Mat' expecting it to all just click!
It’s a piece of the puzzle that we don’t like doing because it’s not bright and shiny and showy, nor can it be easily measured.
But this piece of the teaching puzzle lays an essential foundation for us on our teaching journey and sets us up to reach our potential as a genuine leader, connector and creator in the communities that we teach.
Have you ever looked back at the 'teaching' foundation you have built? Is it steady, does it need tweaking? does it still light you Pilates soul on fire!!?
This is what we will be running through in my upcoming webinar 'Fuel your Pilates Soul' on August 8. It’s an opportunity to go back and take a look at what kind of foundation your teaching has been built on.
We are not judging it or trying to tear it down! We are checking-in, asking questions and seeing if there is room for more connection, for feeling more fulfilled and creative and checking in to see if we are on the right path or following someone else’s model for success.
We will be learning how to find those missing pieces of the puzzle together so it set's our teaching alight and fuels us from the inside out!
