Cultivating Concentration

"Knowing when to step in, when to guide, and when to step away requires much more thought and concentration on the part of the Pilates teacher. Further, it contributes to a much more productive teaching and learning process, a mutually beneficial outcome.

Within the context of a private session or group class, it's about doing and saying progressively less. It's about allowing each of our Pilates students, patients and clients the opportunity to develop their own sense of movement awareness, to feel the rhythm of each movement and to deepen their ability to concentrate. 

It's about continually editing our choice of cues and teaching techniques, with the explicit intent of guiding the client to build concentration, self-awareness and self-reliance."

Thank you Kyria Sabin, for sharing on how we may progress as teachers, and in turn allow clients to be increase their self-awareness and self-reliance.

Movement should be approached like life - with enthusiasm, joy and gratitude – for movement is life and life is movement, and we get out of it what we put into it.”
