WHY DID I CREATE MSC & WHAT IS IT?

I’m sure a lot of you are wondering Why have I created MSC? I could talk about this for hours but here is a brief summary….Our Industry as Pilates Teachers has grown and changed so much since I first began teaching over 15years ago and so have I. There was no group Reformer, no social media and there was limited options for training courses. This meant you truly had to make peace with what you knew in your Mind & Body and practice it over and over again until you knew the work in every fibre of your body.

There wasn’t a lot of room to get lost in the industry as it was so small and I was very fortunate enough to have Amazing guidance and teaching that was very concise yet explored movement freely. I was a Mentor & a Teacher Trainer for the vast amount of my Pilates career so sharing my knowledge and providing teachers with a strong skill base is what I’m passionate about.Over the past few years I have seen an Increasing amount of Pilates teachers graduate and the rise of so many training schools.

However I have widely observed that with so much choice teachers are getting lost in the process and we start to lose what I like to call the “PILATES MAGIC” you know those light bulb moments that can only come from real connections with people and from truly delving deep into the Pilates Method on all levels of your mind and body.

My goal through MSC is for you to be able to reconnect to your practice and grow your Teaching to a deeper level. I have been a Mentor and educator for the better part of my teaching career and I am so passionate about helping other Teachers become their best selves through this Magic that is Pilates! I can’t wait for you to come on this unique experience with me and see your Pilates practice and teaching flourish.

    Breaking down how we program for ourselves and clients. We will have a strong focus on HOW TO PREPARE THE MIND & BODY. There are so many layers to programming and sometimes it can be confusing where to start. MY THEORY on Programming is it’s kind of like cooking you want to know all the ingredients off by heart, the recipe inside out and then you can start to mix up the flavours! I’m going to teach you the Recipe, we will learn and explore the ingredients until together we have an amazing mix and you will be confidently adding in the flavour!
