#1 Connect and Amply Your Authentic Teaching Style

The program is designed to go beyond having competence in the technique of Pilates. It’s so that you connect into your inner voice to guide your personal practice and when you teach Pilates. 

I’ll teach you techniques for this so you work in alignment with your authentic teaching style.

#2 Focus on the In-Demand Trauma Informed Care Methodology

Pilates is an exercise system in which we foster body-mind connection. There is now more understanding of the impacts of trauma on a person, body and brain.

The Trauma Informed Pilates Approach is included as part of the online Pilates training because, now more than ever before, there is a demand for movement teachers to have, understand and apply a Trauma Informed Care framework. 

#3 Business of Pilates

In my teacher training income, job, work-life balance, wasn’t discussed as part of the material, and in most training programs it’s still not. 

Trifecta Pilates is different. I’ll share my personal experience of working locally in studio’s, rec centers, gyms, universities, collaborations, out of my home, and now online. 

I’ll share my journey from struggling Pilates teacher to thriving. This includes income, boundaries, and work-life balance.
