The beginner mat program is the foundation of programs. During this weekend you will learn to teach the 18 beginner level mat exercises and be introduced to teaching tools, philosophy, and teaching formula. The training is broken into five different modules. Each module requires a set number of apprentice hours, i.e. practice hours, which include teaching others, personal practice, and observation. Our curriculum includes the following elements: •CLASSICAL PILATES: comprehensive repertoire, beginning through intermediate level Pilates exercises, and how to make them suitable for any individual. •PROGRESSIVE TEACHING: additions to classical repertoire to make it an organic addition to an individual’s existing fitness program. •TEACHING SKILLS: students will develop a confident and personal teaching style, effective cueing techniques and powerful client communication skills. •GROUP FITNESS: students will learn how to successfully apply Pilates to the group fitness arena. •INTEGRATIVE ANATOMY: students will learn in-depth biomechanics and anatomy, how it pertains to Pilates, and how to appropriately handle special cases and injuries.
