Today we have Mara Sievers, creator of The Pilates Encyclopedia. This is a deep dive into Pilates education and teaching.
We chat about how (new) Pilates teachers can learn to communicate what Pilates is and what it does and doesn't do, why it's important to continue your education beyond your Pilates certification, and how to communicate our style of Pilates clearly so our clients know what to expect. We also dive into her business model, and how it all works. This is a juicy one!
Mara Sievers, NCPT, is the creator of Pilates Encyclopedia, a digital resource center helping Pilates instructors improve their teaching skills such as cueing and layering, and developing more knowledge and confidence for clients with various pathologies. The Pilates method has been defining Mara’s movement experience since 1998 and has been a lifesaver more than once for her personally. Her body of work is her dedication to this awesome and powerful practice. Reach her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Her Pilates Encyclopedia is like a Wikipedia for Pilates; includes a huge uber-detailed library of all Pilates exercises as well as advice for sequencing, special populations, cueing, programming etc.
