What the book is about:

“Moving Beyond Technique: How to Nurture 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.”

What People Are Saying

-- Master Teacher, Carol Appel

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.

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!
