VIRTUAL Teaching Matwork to First-Timers

Teaching Matwork to First-Timers

The introductory session may be the most important group Matwork class taught. This workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team, provides the tools required to ensure this class is motivating, stimulating and will keep first-time clients coming back for more. Selected STOTT PILATES® Essential-level Matwork exercises are examined with an eye to maintaining pace and flow so participants ‘feel’ the workout, while still ensuring proper technique. The use of demonstration, imagery and concise cueing and correcting is discussed while focusing on group safety in the studio.
