The Mentoring Program

A step above. A world apart.

#1 Professional Development Program for Pilates Teachers in the WORLD
LIVE & ONLINE

The Skillful Teaching Mentoring Program is the most established and full-spectrum program for supporting teachers during and beyond their teacher training out there! It’s been more than six years in the making and is currently a thriving live and interactive program with teachers from all over the world!

Believe me when I say there is nothing else quite like this out there! That is not to say that there are not other training programs that are excellent, there are! And yet, the Mentoring Program gives you 12 months of consistent support to help you craft your business, develop your skills as a teacher and help yoworkshop slider trinityu navigate all the challenges that come with launching yourself into the world of teaching.

Using time-tested strategies participants are guided through the exploration and development of exceptional technique- and business-based skills as well supported in the inner work of teaching – diving into their motivations, stories and beliefs about making money, being an expert and so, so much more.   With my individual support and that of the mentoring program participants, you are never left to “figure things out on your own”, yet you are encouraged to walk your unique and authentic  path toward becoming a GREAT teacher!

As a group we hold the space and create the opportunity for you to find out what matters most to you and how you can infuse your work with your GREATEST DESIRES FOR YOUR LIFE! So much of the mentoring program is about helping you MANIFEST your dreams for your teaching, your work and your life.

You can now choose the Certificate Path, which allows you to earn a certificate each year you meet the requirements of the program (Year 1 and Year 2) that says you met the strict and rigorous personal and professional requirements of this exclusive and intensive 12-month program. Learn more HERE.

The Live Program

Northern California

The live and in-person mentoring program is hosted at various locations throughout Sonoma, Napa, Marin and Sacramento counties. Our quarterly workshops are held at different studios around Northern California in order to give participants an opportunity to visit different studios, meet teachers from diverse backgrounds and discover the myriad ways teachers are carving careers for themselves.all laughing 2010

The live program includes quarterly 6-hour workshops, monthly group phone calls (tele workshops and check-ins), a private Facebook Group, online educational platform for workshops and technique-rich content, and an online forum where teachers can interact, submit assignments, videos of themselves teaching and more.

Teachers who participate in the live mentoring program also get monthly one-on-one check-in phone calls or meetings with me to discuss ANYTHING!

In addition, I help teachers find opportunities to student teach, apprentice and observe if those things are needed.

The live program is a rich and wonderful community of teachers who support one another no matter what phase of their teaching they are in. It’s a built-in support system you won’t find anywhere else!

What other teachers are saying…

Kelly Meeker

Chantill has been my teacher, mentor, and friend for many years. She is a brilliant teacher of both Pilates and how to be a teacher – two distinct, but overlapping, pursuits. She has coached me on the foundational things, like introducing myself to clients and cueing from multiple perspectives, and on the advanced pursuits that make good teachers great, like finding strength in times of doubt and insecurity and working with challenging students. She will meet you where you are, help you set goals both personal professional, and guide you in mapping an executing a path forward. Moreover, she’ll ask you the tough questions you may be too nervous to ask yourself! I cannot recommend anyone as a mentor more fulsomely than I recommend Chantill.

Fellow teachers – I must tell you what an impactful experience Chantill Lopez’s 28-Day Course was!  If you are at a point in your teaching, whether it has just begun or you are a seasoned teacher, and you are looking for answers, this course is for you.  Over four weeks time Chantill gives us the opportunity to step back out of our crazy busy lives and teaching schedule to examine our purpose and why we teach, while treating ourselves to self-practice and self-care so that we may have more for others.  You will be exposed to fresh new ways of looking at yourself, how you think and feel, how you move, and breathe, and how your self-practice can transform your energy, life and teaching. You will undoubtedly come out of the course with clarity, and purpose to move you forward in your pilates teaching journey.
