This workshop provides existing level 3 Pilates instructors with the skills and expertise they need to construct and deliver an effective, high quality Advanced-level Dynamic Reformer Pilates class or 1-2-1 session.
In this workshop, attendees will develop their existing Reformer Pilates teaching skills by exploring the benefits of linking exercises in ways that will challenge their existing advanced clientele. Attendees will learn how to incorporate exercises that develop both neuromuscular strength and functional flexibility into their teaching, developing the expertise required to help their clients move more effectively and efficiently.
Rather than relying on teaching techniques that provide little stimulus and more resistance, attendees will learn to create a dynamic three phased session plan, that will better support the progress of their client, and their progress as a teacher – taking their teaching skills to the next level in their career.
Designed and structured by Ten’s Head of Fitness, this is a one day 8 hour workshop, including a break.
There is no pre-course reading requirement. However, you may wish to review the content available on Ten’s online learning portal ahead of the session including:
- Videos and detailed explanations of all exercises
- Spring selections and options
- Teaching cues and watch points
- Exercise progressions and regressions
You may also wish to consider attending one of Ten’s Advanced Dynamic Reformer classes prior to the course start date (2 free class credits are included in Workshop price).
