I imagine you found your way to this page because the word “workshop” was in the title.
You’re in the right place! We have offerings for instructors, aspiring instructors, and regular people looking to enhance and evolve their movement experience.
But…can we talk first? Is there perhaps another word we can use to describe the wonderful world of learning, interacting, discussing, challenging, experimenting and growing rather than “Workshop”?
Frankly, “workshop” sounds so tedious. Does learning and interacting have to feel like work?
Anyway, until I come up with a more descriptive word than “workshop”, my commitment to you is to make your virtual or in person experiences worthwhile and valuable, no matter what name we use to describe them!
I offer three different types of workshops:
- Workshops and Continuing Education for Instructors, Rehab Professionals and Movement Teachers Through Balanced Body©
- Professional Instructor Growth and Continuing Education
- Workshops and Programs for Movement Enthusiasts
Workshops and Continuing Education for Instructors, Rehab Professionals and Movement Teachers Through Balanced Body©
There’s a lot of Pilates training available, and it can be confusing. Balanced Body© is the worldwide leader in MindBody Movement Education. Balanced Body© programs are based on the Balanced Body Movement Principles, providing a strong foundation and giving you a deep understanding of how the body works and how to make it work better.
Balanced Body© Education provides learning opportunities in Pilates and complementary disciplines in an environment that is stimulating, personalized and deeply rooted in the art and science of movement. Learn and grow with programs that develop your mind, body and career. Balanced Body© is committed to supporting your personal and Professional growth.
Pilates in particular has grown over the past two decades as Clinicians have recognized the powerful therapeutic benefits of prescribed functional movement. The extensive Pilates exercise repertoire can be modified to fit the needs of patients, regardless of age, gender, level of function, injury or fitness.
Today, Clinicians are using evidence-based Pilates exercise to successfully treat many common orthopedic and neurological conditions and diseases. The methodology complements traditional manual rehab therapy and helps foster a strong Clinician-patient relationship beyond recovery into an ongoing wellness program. For many contemporary Clinicians, Pilates is an effective treatment modality and post-treatment maintenance program providing incremental revenue for many rehab and wellness practices.
Our Pilates for Rehab Professionals training, taught by Physical Therapists who are Balanced Body© Master Instructors, includes Balanced Body© Movement Principles, Mat, Reformer, Trap Table, Chair and specialty workshops.
Adding a Pilates program to your practice adds value in terms of patient motivation and outcomes, provides opportunities to expand your reach into a larger pool of potential clients, improves engagement and retention, and gives your practice an additional revenue stream.
Professional Instructor Growth and Continuing Education
If you had to have an emergency medical procedure done, would you prefer your health care practitioner be someone who graduated 10 years ago and has kept up with the latest medical and scientific best practices, or would you prefer someone who graduated 5 years ago and has not pursued ongoing education or kept up with the latest advances?
The answer is obvious, but for many of us, continuing education can feel like a burden rather than something we’re inspired to do. We sometimes forget our accountability to our profession and our customers and are often motivated to take a course because we need the CEUs to maintain our certification, accreditation or license and not because the course we’re taking will enhance our skills or benefit our clients.
Alternatively, we can choose areas of genuine interest and gain skill, learn the latest advancements and best practices, and elevate our professional game.
Whatever you initial reason for choosing to uplevel your professional expertise, I hope you’ll stick around and explore our options.
Research shows that continuing education combined with mentorship provide multiple benefits including learning from the experience of others, expanding your options for supporting your clients, polishing existing skills and learning new ones, and re-energizing your personal motivation and fulfillment.
Our instructor growth opportunities vary in topic and focus, giving you lots of options to satisfy your education appetite. We offer continuing education snacks in the form of 2 – 3 hour workshops, longer weekend programs and ongoing 8-week deep dive study group and personal skill building programs.
Workshops and Programs for Movement Enthusiasts
Everyone deserves to feel vibrant health and wholeness. Our programs are designed for all populations to provide you deeper knowledge and experience, and empower you to take control of your well-being.
In a regular Pilates or movement class, there isn’t time to narrow our focus on a specific area such as the feet, shoulder girdle or what to do when you have pain. In a 90-minute focused workshop, we can explore these areas in more detail so you can move through all your activities with more understanding and greater confidence.
Deepen your understanding of how the body works as a whole and improve how you feel, how you move, and increase your overall enjoyment of life by joining one of our self empowerment and Movement Improvement Programs today!
