We all could use an enlightening episode right now! Lily Matson first reached out to me to see if I would be interested in interviewing someone who was just completing her first year of teaching to explore this very sweet spot in a Pilates Teacher's journey. I was a full YES!
At the time of this interview, Lily was a newer Pilates Instructor in Portland, OR. with about 1 year of teaching under her belt. Her relationship with Pilates started when she was in high school, watching Mari Winsor infomercials in her parents' basement over and over again. After years of organized sports, running and barre classes, she made her way back to mat Pilates. She took her first Reformer class at Cascadia Pilates in Portland and there was no turning back. She joined Cascadia Pilates as a member, completed my 450-hr Teacher Training in May 2019 and started to work as an instructor right away, quitting her full-time job in order to pursue this new career in health and wellness. It was a scary leap with lots of challenges, but one that she's so happy she made.
Lily, asked for some coaching in this interview and you know that I was willing to go there and I know that this perspective expanding conversation is exactly what you need to ignite your teaching with new energy for the weeks ahead!
