You can now find a New York Pilates Studio certified pilates teacher at Rhinebeck Pilates! After many trips travelling back and forth to NYC and Edgewater, NJ- as well as a lot of focused work, practice teaching, and observation- I (Elaine Ewing) am finally certified to teach pilates through the NY Pilates Studio Bridge Teacher Certification Program!
This is a really special achievement for me personally. As a fairly confident person in general, this was something I thought I could never do. Ever since I first began teaching, and over the years here and there, I would look at the NY Pilates Studio website and wonder if I could possibly do the certification… and never did. It was very daunting.
Then, this past winter, I saw that they were offering a teacher training called the Bridge Certification- that’s a second certification for already established teachers- and the people teaching it were not only my friends in the pilates world- Sean Gallagher and Junghee Won- but also phenomenal teachers who I knew I could not pass up a chance to study with.
And so I did! Some of the best words I’ve ever heard in my pilates career were when I found out that I passed! My pilates students tell me that they can see a difference. One said, “You were always a great teacher. But I’m so glad you did this new training. I can REALLY feel the difference.” Wow! And others tell me “I’ve never felt this way after a pilates session before”, and “I’m finally getting the exercises I wasn’t getting before.” Hooray! I have never been happier with the pilates I’m teaching and the new burst of energy I have for the method from my new training.
Thank you to all my pilates students for taking this journey with me!
