Virtual Instructor Mentoring


I've been there too! When I first began my training to become a certified Pilates Instructor. I was taught hundreds of exercises, but was never truly taught how to create effective programs for my classes or how to work with people with injuries and specific health issues. 

 So when I became a STOTT Pilates® Instructor Trainer in 2016, I was determined to teach the material in a way that wasn't overwhelming for new instructors. My method is about making sure instructors understand the essences of each exercise and the science behind how the body works, so that you don't have to memorize exercises and all of their modifications. Once you have that clarity, programing won't seem impossible anymore!

In addition to nailing down the programming, you also need to understand the business side and how to market yourself, which they don't teach you in the teacher training courses. Most students are thrown into the deep end, trying to figure everything out on their own. This is where I step in, because I can help you excel with both!

here's what you'll learn by working with a mentor:

You don't have to do this alone. I'm here to help remove the overwhelm and give you step by step guidance on how to program your classes, retain your clients and start a successful business.


Have the confidence to work with any client

It would be nice if every client you worked with was in their 30's and had no injuries, but unfortunately that world doesn't exist.  Teacher training courses go over the exercises and general modifications, but you aren't taught about working with injured bodies. For many new instructors, it's a very scary and stressful experience when they have to work with their first "real" body.  That's when the real learning begins!  Having the support of an experienced professional in your back pocket is key  to skipping the learning curve and gaining a true understanding or programing, anatomy & how to keep your programs safe but challenging to keep your clients coming back.


Get a second eye on your client programs

Whether you just need help with a complex client, you're fresh out of your training course wanting to get grasp on how to program, or you're a seasoned instructor looking for inspiration and creative ideas- mentorship will take you to the next level. Programming is an art and is something you will continue to work on no matter how long you've been teaching. One of the most common questions I'm asked is "how do I keep my workouts safe, but also challenging and creative "? Thinking outside the box is honestly my specialty. I thrive on being creative and helping other instructors realize what is possible. 


Learn how to keep clients coming back 

In order to have a thriving and profitable Pilates business, you not only need to know how to get clients, but you also need to know how to keep them coming back year after year. Understanding how to program is only one part of keeping clients happy.  You also have to understand how to set up your business to retain your clients through your systems and automations.  It should be easy for clients to book with you. Don't forget that your current clients will always be your biggest referral source over any social media post, so this step is crucial!


Master marketing & Pilates business necessities that aren't covered in Teacher Trainings

It is possible to make your passion for Pilates a successful career. It takes a lot more than just understanding how the body works to be successful. You have to know how to market yourself, make a website, understand the tech and automations to make your life easier & so much more! Even if you plan on working as an independent contractor at a studio, you are still your own business and need to understand how to market yourself and protect yourself. 

If you want to receive personalized feedback and guidance on anything related to your Pilates practice or business, mentorship is the answer!
