"Teaching to Inspire" The Pilates Mentorship Program
I created the mentorship program as a way to help Pilates devotees, students and teachers alike experience the power and efficacy of Joseph Pilates original genius, to benefit from the work in their own bodies, honing every essential aspect of the craft, coming to understand teaching as both an art and a science, so that they could then pass it along in its purest and highest form to others. The program is intended to inspire you to achieve your highest potential as a practitioner and instructor and to catalyze an awakening in you as a human being so that you can ultimately reach your highest potential outside the studio ... in life. Because in the end, isn’t that what it’s all about? --Acknowledging that life is here and now and meant to be lived to the fullest! Come, join me ... reach higher and teach others to do the same.
