The Science and Psychology of Teaching Master’s Program is an in-depth and demanding master-level course that provides Pilates teachers with the pivotal skills required to make greater and longer lasting impact on their students and achieve greater fulfillment in their vocation. Through a HIGHLY INTERACTIVE process of learning and implementation teachers are propelled toward more intellectually and professionally rewarding careers both as movement educators and hands-on practitioners.
The SPT program exposes teachers to critical areas of teaching never before directly addressed in a full-length certification program including brain science and education, interpersonal relationships and motivation-enhancement techniques, dynamic brain-based body-awareness curriculum and advanced skills in verbal and manual cueing.
This 6-part online and in-person project-based program is focused on developing teachers who can teach to the whole person in a dynamic and powerful way enabling both student and teacher to cultivate new levels of interaction, integration and results.
Who is this program for?
The SPT program is for teachers who understand that teaching is more than a technical endeavor which requires a fuller understanding of the body, brain and the whole person. We are looking for teachers who want to take their teaching to the next level by developing advanced skills in the areas of science, interpersonal relationships, and strategic teaching approaches that facilitate greater physical integration and self-efficacy for their students as well as more powerful and purposeful teaching tools for themselves.
Completion of this program ultimately positions teachers to take a larger stage, make a bigger impact, and create careers that will continue to grow and expand in a way that is consistently rewarding and lucrative.
