Directors Corner-April 2011
Now that the dust has settled and the HK Conference is over, our Iso folks will be happy to know that the studio is all theirs once again! We much appreciate our Iso Fit clients' understanding of our need to rearrange the studio and cancel a number of group classes during the conference period.
We are pleased to say that the conference was a great success and our Iso teachers have all come away with a lot of valuable information to think about and implement with regard to their Pilates teaching. I particularly like the quote below because it speaks volumes with regard to our commitment to invest in our instructors and their teaching excellence......
All of the top
achievers I know are life-long learners... Looking for new skills, insights,
and ideas. If they're not learning, they're not growing... not moving
toward excellence. Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty
or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in
life is to keep your mind young.
We, the Iso Team, like to stay "young"; we know the benefits of organizing Pilates and Gyrotonic training events of international high standards are manifested in teaching excellence at Iso Fit.
Those of you who managed to get a booking with Alexander Bohlander or Deborah Lessen will know what we mean when we say that they are two of the very best Pilates Master teachers world-wide. If you didn't get to work with them this time round and would like to work with either of them when they next visit, do please let us know. In the meantime, stay "young" with our existing team of fabulous instructors!
Deborah Lessen inspired many of our teachers during her recent visit with her amazingly in-depth teaching based on the work of Carola Trier, who worked with Joseph Pilates. Her comment to the students she worked with at Iso was the same: "How can we show you (our clients) how to live happily in your own body". There's no use pushing anyone through a program unless they are working "happily". It's very important, says Deborah that we pay attention to the details right from the "get-go". This means making sure that we move well in the beginning of a session and make initial relationships.
We hope to continue our relationship with you for many sessions to come - see you at the studio!
