What people are saying:
The teacher of a mindful practice must maintain his/her healthy inner framework for why we do what we do. Only with our own solid core – of values, personal vision, and heightened awareness of possibilities and process, can we maintain a balance of passion and boundaries; especially when uncertainty hits us square in the face. At that point when we realize there are no safety nets, Chantill’s words of wisdom are a welcome acknowledgement of our fears:
Why am I teaching? What do I have to give? What do I want out of a teaching career?
Aware to the possibilities of personal transformation in our students, and within our own lives, Chantill poses questions and practical exercises to heighten and hold onto the enduring reserve it takes. This is a worthy book to sit alongside any teaching manual.
“Refreshingly honest, authentic and inspiring. Chantill, and her ultimate guidance in this powerful book, is the voice that yoga and Pilates teachers have been searching for…even if they didn’t know it. Teachers: For your students and your own inner peace, read (and do) this book. It will make a difference.”
“Transferring educational instinct into workable, measurable progress is something Lopez performs brilliantly. Read this book and improve your pilates teaching and business acumen no matter where you are in your path.”
“Chantill walks the walk, she is a thoughtful, deeply caring teacher whose insights come from fully facing her own challenges and struggles head on and turning them into victories and growth. I know because I’ve been working beside her for 7 years and can’t imagine where I would be in my own teaching evolution without her encouragement to continually reasses and her gentle prodding to step more fully into my potential. As I’ve watched her turn her discoveries into a successful mentoring program and coaching business I’ve witnessed how profoundly she has affected her trainees, setting them far ahead of those who’ve not had the opportunity in their movement training programs to delve into these deeper questions making all the difference in establishing joy and longevity in a fledgling career. Seasoned teachers also reignite passion and cultivate greater satisfaction with Chantill’s guidance. Listen closely, dig deep!”
