The upcoming blog posts are going to describe and hopefully create intrigue around our Pilates Training Recipe.
But first I’d like to open with a recap and a clarification for future consideration when reading upcoming blogs.
The purpose of our blogs is to share with our clients. It is to explore what goes on behind the scenes and how each person can get the most out of their time at the studio. As well, we hope to share with those who don’t know us by describing who we are, what we do and why we love teaching Pilates so much.
The greatest difficulty I’m running into while writing my blog articles is this:
The context that underpins every part of our studio is missing because we teach the person (or people) in front of us not the exercise, this is the context of our Pilates Training Recipe.
Practicing the Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle) with the person in front of us results in
opens doors previously unknown to our clients (and us)
and gives meaning to each movement and exercise.
For example, we can have two different people with the “same” low back discomfort and pain. We help each person learn how to move in ways that feels energizing, efficient and pain free albeit differently. So different, in fact, that if the person (context) was removed and the two concepts were described back to back it would sound as though we are contradicting ourselves.
This leaves me with a wee bit of a conundrum given that the blogs speak about the exercise without the specific context of the person in front of us.
Over the next few months our blogs will be discussing how we put our Pilates Training Recipe together in order to give clients an opportunity to continue to get more out of every session or class they attend.
When reading the word recipe please picture a person in the kitchen embracing the process of creating a meal. The recipe is deeply ingrained, they don’t need to follow exactly, instead they begin, they taste, they adjust.
In other words our Pilates training recipe is abstract, offering us a platform to embrace the most important part of our training, you, the person (or people) in front of us.
Because here’s the thing.
You are a unicorn, unique, outstanding and full of surprises.
And Pilates is the “unicorn of fitness.”
The intention of our Pilates Training Recipe is to create an atmosphere that allows you to embrace where you are & how you are before trying to change, adapt or keep up.
