Stott Pilates training

I just finished with my first weekend of Pilates instructor training classes (for mat only).  I am a little bit overwhelmed, but at the same time, I am extremely excited.  I am a bit overwhelmed because I have a lot of anatomy review to do (it’s been about 10 years since I took that class!) and I don’t have a lot of Pilates experience (yet!).  But I am excited because I think this is an amazing opportunity for me to become a better dancer and dance teacher and because I believe that Stott Pilates is such an amazing form of excercise.  With the little that I have learned so far, I see that some of the concepts that I already to teach to my dance students are a part of the Stott Pilates methods.  (Yay!)

Part of my path to becoming a certified instructor is to do a minimum of 15 hours of practice teaching.  That is where you all come in.  After I finish with the training classes, I will need some guinea pigs to be my Pilates students.  I will book space at a studio (most likely Studio Bizz) so I can give private 1-hour lessons.  I probably won’t stop at the required minimum 15 hours, as I want to become as comfortable as possible before taking my exam.  Once I get that organized, I will let you all know the details and start scheduling your time slots.

I hope to immediately start incorporating what I’m learning from Pilates into my dance classes.  I think we will all benefit!  Just don’t be afraid if I start throwing in some anatomy terminology!

Stay tuned for more news….
