In this workshop, you will learn:

If you’re a Pilates teacher and you work with people who take group fitness or yoga classes, this workshop will give you the tools to help your clients troubleshoot some of their common challenges.
Frequently Asked Questions
I see that some of the exercises are on a Springboard. I’m a yoga teacher and only have access to small props. How much of this workshop will I be able to use in my classes?
Every exercise you’ll learn in this workshop that done on the Springboard is also shown with small props (e.g. blankets, straps, blocks, stretchy bands, and balls) that you will probably have access to in the yoga studio.
Additionally, this workshop covers modern movement science concepts that you can apply to anything that you teach.
I’m interested in the workshop, but don’t have time to watch it right now. If I purchase it, how long will I have access to it?
Good news! Once you buy the workshop it’s yours to keep forever.
