4 Days : 32 Hours
Prerequisite: Stage 1 Matwork or appropriate equivalent training
This programme is designed to introduce you to the original Pilates repertoire of 34 movements along with modifications and variations. The goal is to create a larger body of work to enable you to move your fundamental group mat work clients toward a more challenging traditional repertoire whilst still adhering to the Michael King Method protocol.
We learn the movements, transition, appropriate stretching and class formatting. For each movement we develop a rating allowing us to more easily design the class format for the appropriate level of the group. The course also involves homework and a focus on teaching skills and self practice. This course is not a physical test, the aim is to help you understand what areas of your own physicality and teaching practice needs attention.
