Pilates: The Art of Teaching Methods

To train someone is a big responsibility, and to train mentors is a double responsibility, this is an exam for you personally, a kind of test for what you really know.

When we receive a certificate for the first time after long courses, studies and exams, this feeling is incomparable. We rejoice, feel omnipotent – of course, because we deserve it, it was hard work and we have something to be proud of.

Very often I hear the following – “that’s it, now I can educate others, I am entitled to honor and increase salaries, because I have a certificate!” I am happy for these people, but I can’t help but think at that moment – “yes, now you are finally ready to start.” Continue reading

Spine Corrector

I am always very surprised when I visit the newly opened Pilates studio, which has the latest equipment in the world, but there is not a single spinal corrector. Once I was even invited to conduct a class on a spinal corrector, and when I entered the hall, it turned out that I would use Bosu or FitBall as a corrector.

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.

More dramatic requirements are, for example, the requirements of extended working hours. Today, a person processes and does not receive payment for this, and if he does not, he is fired. Permanent refining is the inherent cost of the capitalist era in which Austria, Germany and, probably, Russia also live. Continue reading
