Welcome to the BodyTonic Pilates Teacher Training Program at Rhinebeck Pilates. We are very excited to have you and want you to have an inspiring, informative and professional experience here. Please take a moment to review the expectations of the BodyTonic Teacher-in-Training.
This time should be spent observing, taking classes and private or semi-private sessions and helping to put the equipment back. Practice teach each other and friends and family the mat work. At the conclusion of 200 hours you will take an exam that shows you are ready to take practice clients!
Begin taking practice clients. At this point, all practice clients should be taught at a beginner level and have no injuries. It is each teacher’s responsibility to do one’s own scheduling and using of Mindbody Online software. Time will be taken to teach you how to use the software. Practice teaching may only be done during the hours of an approved teacher who is already scheduled to be in the studio. There will also be discussion and feedback given to you on all your practice teaching sessions. Be prepared to discuss the practice teaching sessions as a way to improve your work and understanding of the Pilates method and to become a better teacher.
Also at this point you should have a regularly/weekly scheduled private, duet, or trio session on the books with Jennifer or Elaine in addition to your own work outs and group classes.
Continue teaching clients with no injuries/issues, as well as approved clients with minor issues, duet sessions, and community classes.
Occasional pop quizzes will be issued both online and in person.
Continued short meetings and discussions about practice teaching will take place regularly.
Exam time. Your exam will be scheduled with one of a handful of teachers. It will include a practical exam that once you pass, you will then receive a written exam. If for any reason you need to re-take your exam there will be a fee of $175.
Provided you have followed the protocol of all of the above and with approval, you are welcome to audit one following BodyTonic Pilates Teacher Training in Rhinebeck or Brooklyn provided there is space.
