Each course includes two stages:
STAGE I - WEEKEND MEETINGS
Course group meetings conducted by the author of the course program, Ilona Włodarczyk. During the meetings you learn how to perform the exercises and thoroughly study their technique. Depending on the course level, you also discuss the topics such as anatomy, biomechanics, Pilates principles, correct posture, teaching group and individual classes and complementarity of the Pilates system practiced on all kind of equipment.
STAGE II - COMPLETING THE TASKS
Each participant receives a Task Card where they collect signatures for each task that they have finished. Time for completing all of the tasks is 1 year (for Comprehensive Course on advanced level – 1,5 year). Below you will find the description of each task.
When a student completes all of the tasks, they can take an exam. When they pass the exam, they will receive a certificate.
Tasks – intermediate and advanced part:
Course participant devotes specific amount of time to practice on their own the exercises discussed during the course. That way they have the space to feel particular exercises in their body and perfect the repertoire at their own pace.
The task is to perform Pilates exercise repertoire on given apparatus or on mat to the course teacher. The demonstration happens “in silence”, with no interruptions. Afterwards, the teacher discusses their remarks concerning the training with the student.
BOOKS AND VIDEOS
Student devotes specific amount of time on exploring the course topic through research and reading books, articles or watching videos. This task allows to deepen the subjects that are most interesting for the student as well as to thoroughly analyse issues that are harder for them to grasp.
Learning how to teach classes through the observation of lessons at professional Pilates studio. This allows to explore topics like creating lesson program, exercise modification adjusted for specific client needs and using different kinds of cues.
TEACHING A CLIENT AND PRESENTATIONS
The task is to teach a set of lessons for specific client (it can be a family member, a friend or a client at the workplace). The work with the client is then described in a presentation. Student receives the model presentation to fill out and the guidelines on how to prepare it. Completed presentation is discussed and displayed for the course teacher.
Student teaches individual and group classes. After the lesson there is time devoted to discuss the way of teaching and the class program. Student achieves an experience of teaching classes and a feedback form participants about their strong points as well as some tips on what they could work on.
