I Want to Be a Pilates Teacher!
Is this something that you’ve said or thought lately? “I Love Pilates, and want to become a Pilates Teacher!”
Teaching Pilates is a great career choice.
I have had more fun in the past 16 years teaching Pilates than at any other job I’ve ever had. In fact, it’s hard to consider teaching Pilates a “job.” This is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Every day it’s a new opportunity to help other people improve their quality of life and whole-body health. And my body had the priviledge of figuring it all out first, (since you’ve got to be a Pilates student, before you can become a great Pilates teacher!)
My Thoughts on Being a Pilates Teacher
Do I know everything there is to know about Pilates? Nope… but I think that’s a good thing!
But I Do know A LOT, and have tons of valuable information to share.
One of the most interesting things about teaching Pilates is that I can honestly say that every day I learn something new! Sometimes I learn new things while I’m doing my own personal Pilates workouts. And other days, my clients help me discover new things. It might be a new and improved cue, or visual image, other days it may be a modification to an exercise, progression that helps improve technique, or just something I “see” that I never noticed before.
The biggest reward is the feedback I get from my clients. When I hear, I’m stronger, I’m a half an inch taller, my back doesn’t hurt anymore, my shoulder-pain is gone, I can do a Roll Up, my neck feels much better, my hip doesn’t bother me anymore, I can walk without foot-pain,…and more. This is the encouragement I need to know that I’m helping make a positive difference in the lives of others because I’ve chosen to be a Pilates Teacher!
