Imagine yourself two years from now, looking back on the intervening time. What would you love to have accomplished in your Pilates career and personal life? How have you helped others? What kind of teacher have you become?
What you teach matters. How you teach it matters even more.
While this manual is written for teachers, the principles, concepts and programs it contains can benefit many people.
This manual comprises ten main chapters.
- Reformer – to build muscle, increase flexibility and range of movement
- Balance – provides you with concepts and practical progression to accelerate your clients to the next level of challenge safely
- Osteoporosis – building bone density
- Pelvic Floor strengthening
- Neurological disorders – Parkinsons’ disease
- The spine including spinal canal sternosis
- Knee Pain
- Hips – arthritis and hip replacements
- Breast Cancer Recovery
- Good posture and Upper thoracic extension
While I hope this manual will give you with practical tools for engaging in working with older clients and taking the next step in your Pilates career or personal practice, my greater hope is that it will elevate the trajectory of your own health and youthful vitality. By practicing your exercises and developing your muscle, balance and bone density, you will enjoy the genuine satisfaction that flows from working out and working hard at Pilates – so worth it – mentally, physically, and also uplifting for your spirit.
I hope you’ll return to this manual again and again as you navigate your way through the maze of classes, clients, and challenges that are certain to unfold before you in your upcoming years as a Pilates practitioner. May it become a trusted guide for making clear and safe decisions, not just for your clients and classes but yourself also in terms of programming, verbal and tactile cueing. I hope you will be able to seize opportunities for teaching others and enjoy the rewards and satisfaction you’ll receive by doing so.
Take action to generate opportunities by forging relationships with other Pilates instructors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and myotherapists; innovate and build upon your successful Pilates career.
