Teaching Lab

The very best way to hone in on your teaching skills is to get feedback while teaching clients. During a teaching lab, you will bring an individual to teach a full Pilates session on. Maria will videotape your teaching, and review the footage with you and the other instructors attending the teaching lab. During the review process, the instructor will receive constructive criticism based on the session he or she has just taught. This is an excellent way to take your teaching to the next level, and to prepare you for your Pilates test-out.

Duration: 3 hours. Your client will only need to attend the first hour of the session.
