About the book:

“Moving Beyond Technique: How to Nurture Your Passion, Master Your Craft, and Create a Thriving Pilates Business,” Lopez deftly and compassionately guides both new and seasoned Pilates teachers through the often-ignored realities and challenges of being a body/mind/movement teacher. She delves deeper than teacher training manuals and over-billed continuing education courses to give readers practical and vital tools to: identify core commitments, create boundaries, face and defeat demons, establish ultimate teacher/student relations, amplify client/student retention, revitalize their love of teaching.

With personal inventory check-ins, practical checklists and other real-life strategies for boosting business and fostering richness in a service-based career, “Moving Beyond Technique” helps readers rekindle their love of teaching and amplify the meaning and joy in their work.”

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 re-asses 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!
