Workshop 2006: Methodology: Teach Pilates

45 min
What You'll Need:
Methodology of Teaching Pilates: Guidelines to Improve Teaching and Deepen Understanding

So many Pilates workshops for teachers are focused on teaching anatomy and the repertoire of the exercises, but don't focus on the methodology of teaching Pilates. In this workshop, Rael Isacowitz brings you ten guidelines that will lead you in your daily teaching of Pilates. Rael's energy and passion will inspire you to grow your thirst for knowledge, believe in Pilates, and set you on the path to being a successful Pilates teacher.

-Break down the mechanics of Pilates exercises such as Roll Up, Criss Cross, Side Bend, and Single Leg Kick
-Encourage you to keep your teaching fresh and to foster a student mindset for continuous growth and learning
-Discuss how to protect yourself from teaching burn out, both physically and emotionally
-Help you understand the importance of experience, continuous practice, and keeping your body healthy

Rael, I think what inspires me most is your dedication and your passion! Again and again I am so moved by the way you bring yourself into this work and your teaching. You have this mixture of being humble on one hand and VERY demanding on the other hand. You are a teacher, (or a teaching student..), I can love and fear at the same time. Thank you for the 10 Guidelines! It is good to be clear about what we want in our work and our life!

Dear Silke, thank you so, so much for your words, they truly touched a deep place within me. You can indeed love and fear at the same time. I was reminded of this 2 days ago snowboarding up at Whistler, Canada in complete whiteout. To love and to fear are part and parcel of my passion for what I do.

Rael, thank you so much for sharing these lessons and guidelines with all of us. As a young student embarking on a lifetime journey of practice embracing and learning to embody a Pilates way of life, and share the gifts that Pilates has to offer with others, each of these lessons resounded with me and spoke loudly to my current experiences, especially when you spoke about the vitality of being an eternal student, humility, and staying connected to the work to our ability to teach and be and offer the best that we can be. I adore your enthusiasm and passion - more than anything, that is inspiring to the utmost degree. Thank you!

Thank you.
