WHY CHOOSE THE LAB
We created a training program to fill the gaps in other training programs. We found applicants at our studios were lacking in a few necessary skills that weren’t emphasized in many training programs. So we made sure to include what we couldn’t find anywhere else:
A solid classical foundation so the original work is passed on, but with an emphasis on teaching to the body in front of you
Contemporary variations + modifications that are beneficial to all populations as well as special populations (ex. Sidelying Footwork for prenatal clients no longer laying on their back)
Class Planning - we encourage creative class planning and learning how to do that is a skill that should begin in training. We’ve created three different methods to get trainees started and spark intelligent class plans for both group and private clients
Verbal Cueing - Developing a higher level of verbal cuing to go beyond the typical “knit your ribs and put your shoulders down” type of cueing.
Tactile Cueing - Encouraging trainees to use appropriate touch to correct and guide their clients through an exercise
Ongoing Support - we’re here for you. We’ve been where you are right now and we want to make the process as easy as possible, for as long as you offer it. Call, email, text we’re happy to help in anyway.
