“Intelligent course design”: it is about access and equity. We want our courses to be accessible to all people, from all walks of life. And life, as we know all too well, can be messy!

9 Books You Should Be Reading —

26/03/2020

8 Blogs You Should Be Reading —

26/03/2020

Pilates mastery is earned, not bought. “Mastery” shouldn’t be confused with the practical “doing” of Pilates: learning choreography and pedagogy. There’s so much more to it. After all, just because you’ve got the moves, doesn’t mean you’ve mastered them. Underneath professional delivery is mastery from years of (ongoing) study that comes only from investing in […]

The Balancing Act: Gender in Pilates —

The misconception that Pilates is somehow a feminine discipline perhaps comes from the fact it was adopted early, in the mainstream, by the dance community: a traditionally female industry. In actual fact, Joseph Pilates used the Method to train army troops, interned prisoners and men from all walks of life, as much if not more […]

21/01/2020

In early June 2019, renowned Scoliosis specialist Helen New paid a visit to Pilates ITC HQ in Perth to deliver a series of Studio sessions and the main event, Curvy Bodies: A Scoliosis Workshop, for WA Instructors and Students. Continuing Ed isn’t “just for” qualified, experienced Instructors; to illustrate this point we sat down with Pilates ITC WA Educator, Lora Rainey and Diploma Graduate, Nikki Ramm to reflect on their CE experience with Helen New.

How Accredited Training Will Strengthen the Australian Pilates Industry —

06/05/2020

The Pilates specialist industry has seen many changes over the last few years, going from rapid growth and government recognition to studios closing their doors due to COVID-19.

A Matter of Style —

“What do you get when you train with Pilates ITC?” This is among our most frequently asked questions from people considering our Courses or Professional Instruction Pathways. It’s a question that’s often bigger than “what am I going to learn” or “do I get free T-shirt” (yes, you do!) and more about identity: “Who can I become as an Instructor if you show me how?” It’s a matter of style. Learning Style. Teaching Style. Professional Style. And does this all work for you?

Instructor Care and You —

24/01/2020

“Self-care”: it’s so much more than a product of the wellness industry. At its core, self-care is any activity undertaken with intention to improve and or maintain our mental, emotional and physical health.

In this blog, we explore the importance of self-care for Instructors, in an operational context, and ask you to identify activities, practices and consider strategies for supporting your wellbeing as a professional.
