We could go on all day about the benefits of studying the Fletcher work, but we'll start with a few reasons why you should take our upcoming Prep Course!
(1) Explore your questions about a Fletcher Pilates® teaching career
“I've always wanted to teach Pilates, but right now I work at a desk all day. Could I handle the physical demands of being a Pilates teacher?”
“Sure, I love doing Pilates for an hour a day, but what about all day long?”
"I'm a dancer. Is teaching Pilates a good parallel career?"
“I’m a Pilates teacher who has studied another lineage. What’s different about the Fletcher work?”
If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions lately, the Prep Course could be a great fit for you. It’s a perfect way to dip a toe into Fletcher Pilates before committing to our Foundational Teacher Training Program. (Don’t worry, we’ll teach you how to point that toe by articulating through your foot centers first!) Our Prep Course sessions are scheduled on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons, so you can maintain your current work schedule while exploring a new career.
(2) Deepen your practice
Maybe you just love doing Pilates and want more of it in your life. (We know the feeling!) The Prep Course is an affordable way to get 30 hours of in-depth Pilates education. Even in a private session, we only have an hour to work the details of a handful of movement pieces. Each Prep Course session is 3-4 hours, allowing you to develop and deepen new awareness in your body.
(3) Stay active (and warm!) as the weather changes
Fall and winter bring grey skies and a particular brand of damp chill to Western Washington. Already have your fleece vest and piping-hot latte at the ready? This year, as the days shorten, commit to lengthening your body and warming it from the inside out. Bonus: You will definitely see change in your body before the New Year.
(4) Breathe through a busy time of year
The hustle. The bustle. The airplane trips. The long car rides. The pies. The cookies. So very many pies and cookies! Our Prep Course runs through the beginning of the holiday season--from October into the first week of December. Participating in the Prep Course can help you stick to your Pilates practice (and remember to breathe) during this busy time. Holiday shopping tip: Course tuition would make a fantastic early gift for the Pilates nerd in your life!
(5) Prepare to take the plunge!
Already know you’re going to sign up for our 2017 Fletcher Pilates® Foundational Program? We’re excited that you’ll be joining us! (BTW: It’s going to be an International Program with sessions in Seattle and Vancouver, Canada. Double the knowledgeable and passionate Fletcher Faculty, spend time in two great cities. How cool is that?) The Prep Course is the most affordable and ideal way to earn 30 hours of required prerequisite training and prepare your mind/body connection for our renowned Teacher Training Program.
