In this episode, we explore the challenges faced by students and instructors alike, and discuss valuable insights on creating a positive and empowering learning environment.  Thanks to the Pilates subreddit for encouraging me to answer some questions in the forum.  See the links below to join over 90k Pilates enthusiasts! 

Here are your three key takeaways:

1️⃣ Student Centered Learning: We discuss the power of embracing a student-centered approach in movement teaching. By actively listening to our students and adapting our methods to meet their unique needs, we can foster an environment that encourages growth and success.

2️⃣ Embracing Discomfort: We explore the idea that discomfort and anger can be catalysts for change and personal growth. In Pilates, challenging ourselves and pushing beyond our comfort zones can lead to incredible discoveries about our bodies and minds. Let's lean into those uncomfortable moments and uncover the reasons behind our movements.

3️⃣ Personalization and Progress: Speaker A highlights the importance of making Pilates our own and personalizing our practice. Whether it's modifying exercises, experimenting with non-traditional movement patterns, or using props, finding what works for us leads to a more satisfying and enjoyable Pilates experience. Plus, tracking our progress along the way helps us stay motivated and inspired.
