Value of life

This deficit can be not only a subjectively felt need, but also an attitude towards life, which, ultimately, can lead to burnout.

How do I understand my life? Based on this, I can develop my goals according to which I live. These settings can be from parents, or a person develops them in himself. For example: I want to achieve something. Or: I want to have three children. Become a psychologist, doctor or politician. Thus, a person for himself outlines goals that he wants to follow.

This is completely normal. Which of us has no goals in life? But if goals become the content of life, if they Continue reading

Causes of burnout

Speaking about the reasons, in general, three areas are distinguished. This is an individual psychological area when a person has a strong desire to surrender to this stress. The second sphere – socio-psychological or social – is pressure from the outside: various fashion trends, some kind of social norms, requirements at work, the spirit of the times. For example, it is believed that every year you need to go on a trip and if I can’t do this, then I don’t correspond to the people living at this time with their lifestyle. This pressure can be carried out in a latent form, and it can result in burnout.

Interview with Disciple Educator of Lolita’s Legacy ™ by Ekaterina Smirnova

Ekaterina, in 2014 you received the status of the official Disciple Educators of Lolita’s Legacy ™. Ms. Lolita San Miguel has granted you the honorary right to teach and conduct certification in Eastern Europe for the Lolita’s Legacy training program. Many potential program participants are interested in the question, what path have you taken under the leadership of Elder Pilates to become the only second-generation teacher, Disciple Educator Lolita’s Legacy in Eastern Europe? How does it feel to be a student of the legendary Lolita?

Being a student of Lolita San Miguel is not only a great honor, but also a responsibility. When I went to study with her, I did not fully realize how global her impact on me would be. In addition to the knowledge gained (this was the main motive to learn from Lolita), I received a status that I must comply with because everything connected with the signature of Ms. Lolita San Miguel is a sign of the highest quality.
In order, I first took a two-year PMMP (Pilates Master Mentor Program) course. This is a training program for education professionals. Lolita does not teach Pilates here. Carefully selected program participants must already have a good command of the method, have a Diploma of the School recognized by it, and meet a number of criteria. This is a Continue reading
