Thanks, Niedra! Loved this tutorial, as it was good to reflect on the journey, yes I have had experiences with Pilates teachers who I need to be more mindful and empathetic, but these teachers have been able to provide me with the clarity through contrast on what type of Pilates instructor I want to be. Again, thanks for sharing and this community, it is really great to connect and read about other teachers experiences.
I appreciate everything you had to say in this video, but in particular your honesty about negative self-talk. I think it's easy to only talk about the good and just portray that "high self", especially online when you can really control what image you project. Admitting that we all have that self-doubt makes us human and it's ok and normal to have that, acknowledge it, and let it pass. Thanks again!
This has helped me realise how my negative self talk makes me my worst enemy.
I have people tell me how much they love my classes and how much I have shared about Pilates, with them, has helped them, but i don't always see it. I therefor stepped away from teaching as I didn't feel I was right for it.
I see after your video how, if i believed in myself as much as others do in me, I would be doing what I chose to do. Which is , to share my knowledge and love for Pilates with others.
Danielle well done on seeing this. We are usually, our worst enemy, and what a waste. Please step into your passion now, find a way to get back into teaching and learn to stop your negative self talk . Sometimes telling yourself to "shut up" is very effective ( I am smiling - but it works for me...) keep going
