WHY CHOOSE BODY & FLOW?

Our programs are designed to reveal the best possible teacher in you! While focusing on anatomy and technique as well as teaching skills and hands on, we achieve maximum results as the information is layered progressively. We don’t believe in memorizing, but rather you understanding the concept. We believe in learning and comprehension over memorizing and parroting. Our team of master teachers is available to support you before, during and after the training. We allow our students to attend courses again at no extra charge.

How to teach – We will teach you how to teach, not only what to teach. In our courses we focus on creating thinking, inspiring teachers. By using various teaching methods such as interactive learning, practice, labs, problems solving and role games, we work intensely on teaching skills, expanding teaching vocabulary and will explore touch in order to teach. We emphasize safety and will learn how to spot and correct misalignments and problematic executions, posture and structure problems. Through practice and hard work, our course helps to unfold the creative, passionate and kind teacher inside you…

Quality Vs. Quantity – Since 2008 we have been offering our education programs worldwide and we are true to Joseph Pilates’s principle of quality over quantity. We limit the registration to 12 students in a course, to ensure each student will get the attention he deserves.

Set you for success – As our trainer, you will lead a new generation of students into the meaningful body and mind connection. You are the memory they will carry along their path. We consider this to be an enormous amount of responsibility and have worked diligently on providing you with the best possible tools to accomplish this task with continuous support and community to learn, share and explore.

WHAT IS THE “BODY & FLOW” APPROACH TO PILATES?

There are many variations to Pilates. We take the contemporary approach, which is more adaptable and suitable for today’s population.

CAN I LEARN FROM A VIDEO?

Videos are not ideal for learning tools. Optimally, you want an experienced, qualified teacher who can see your body and give you specific feedback on your exercise performance. However, videos can be wonderful ways to practice and enhance learning.

 

 

WHAT ARE OBSERVATION AND ASSISTANT TEACHER HOURS?

For each course you should complete observation and assistant teaching hours as part of the course requirements. You are welcome to do it at the studio where the course takes place at no extra charge and subject to the studios’ policy.

WHAT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN MY CERTIFICATE?

While there is no expiration date on the certificate, we highly recommend you will never stop learning. We offer continuing education and courses and will be happy to see you with us for additional courses.
