INTUITIVE TEACHING A WORKSHOP FOR PILATES TEACHERS
BY MARJON VAN GRUNSVEN AND
Intuition is the ability to understand something without the need for conscious reasoning.
We all have it, and when it comes to teaching the Pilates method (or anything else, for that matter), it takes an important place in the teacher’s toolbox. Knowing when to stick to the curriculum—and when to stray from it—is what allows a teacher to fully be present with their students. But, how and when can we trust our intuition, and how can we reconcile our desire to teach “the method” with the occasional necessity to go “off-script”?
Intuitive Teaching is not your typical Pilates workshop; it’s a safe space for Pilates teachers to turn inwards to synthesize all their skills and develop a joyful, intuitive teaching style. If you are looking to experience intuition from a place of confidence and creativity, we invite you to join us on this journey.
Intuition comes from experience, and synthesizing our earned knowledge. Intuitive Teaching is a 3-day exploration into various themes:
• understanding your essence as a person • integrating your essence into your teaching • discussing pedagogy, the art of teaching • creating a session on the spot • building trust and confidence in your intuition
This exploration will continue well beyond the workshop itself; participants will be given followup materials and coaching opportunities, online and in person.
