9 Books You Should Be Reading —

26/03/2020

We’ve talked about Pilates “mastery” being the product of years of (ongoing) study, and seeking out knowledge. So, here’s part two: nine books you should be reading on your journey toward Pilates mastery.

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 2022 Federal Budget brought with it a welcome incentive for Australian small to medium sized business to invest in training and upskilling staff. The “Skills and Training Boost” equates to 20% of eligible expenses, meaning if a small business spends $100 on training employees will get a $120 tax deduction.

Co-Instruction: Shadow Teaching Balance —

Work Placement (WP) is all about creating real-life context for- and applying- what you learn in Course Delivery sessions and from your own study (Self-Directed Learning) of the course content.

A Matter of Style —

06/05/2020

“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. We see this very concept in the Workplace Health and Safety unit (HLTWHS001) of our Diploma of Professional Pilates Instruction and associated Instruction Pathways. 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.
