Could the introduction of Pilates help the cyclist to train smarter?……

The answer to this is a resounding yes – at both an elite level, and also for someone who is using their bike to get to work ; for any cyclist improving efficiency is key – the more power they can produce with less effort, the faster they can travel for longer.

It is easy to spot a tiring cyclist – as fatigue sets in their effort becomes less and ...

Last Teacher Training Weekend!

Posted by:

We’re done! (well, sort of)

On the Friday night of the final training weekend, Tanis tosses the teacher-trainees (TTs) into the pool – but only metaphorically. Several unfamiliar bodies show up for impromptu one-on-one lessons and the trainees must assess, program and teach –without consulting their manuals! Showing nerves only for a minute, each performs naturally and efficiently, spotting and adapting to compensation patterns and issues, while executing good flow and variety in their lessons. Tanis, Amy, and Corinne watch how ...

The 5th Weekend of Teacher Training: Serious Fun!

Posted by:

The landscape seems to have changed overnight.

Perhaps stimulated by last month’s evaluations, aided by the growing comfort with practice students, and enhanced by the group meetings about what to expect and what will be expected over the next six months, things are feeling a little more focused in the studio. Teacher-Trainees are tallying their hours of training, self-practice, and practice teaching, and looking ahead to apprentice teaching, and even preparing for the PMA exam in the far distance BUT –- ...

Midway – Weekend No 4 . Pilates Teacher Training Testing, barrels, toes & feet

Posted by:

Exam time?!! The first written “midterm” prompted classic test anxiety, despite assurances that it was merely an evaluation (and more for the teaching team) of what TTs have managed to retain rather than memorize over the last few months. Just as our bodies don’t retain things unless practiced and integrated into our daily thinking and actions, this study/memorization habit and test stress response shows there is still work to do in changing ingrained responses as we learn how to establish ...
