I am so often asked, “Why Polestar Pilates?” What is so good about this training? Now it’s funny you would think that I get tired of this question. That maybe I feel challenged by this question. Well, that’s not exactly true. I absolutely love this question, “Why Polestar Pilates?” I love the dialog, the opportunity to talk about why, I love teaching the Polestar Pilates Curriculum.
Reason #1 There is no dogma?
A definition of dogma as I found on the Internet, “a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.” Now the Polestar Pilates Comprehensive series certainly has a set of principles, but we are constantly questioning what we know to be true! Nothing absolutely nothing is set in stone. As a Pilates Instructor I used to say things years ago that have been proven ineffective or inaccurate. I am the first to admit it, and I am happy to sit down with and explain the evolution of my thinking.
Here’s a for instance…I haven’t asked anyone to rollout their ITBands in about 10 years. It doesn’t work and once I figured that out through evidence and research, I stopped asking people to do it! In Polestar Pilates there is no dogma…Nothing is set in stone, we are always questioning and improving the work that we do! If you want a Pilates Instructor Training that is on the cutting edge you should trust Polestar Pilates.
Reason #2 Creativity
We just started a cohort of Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Students at The Pilates Studio in Hadley. At the end of the weekend we split the group into three groups and each of us worked on a case study or program design together. At the end of a half an hour, we compared the three program designs, and I got on my soap box…I was even standing on a long box…What I love about program design in Polestar Pilates is our ability to create different programs based on our own backgrounds. We get to use our own creativity within the program to help people! This Pilates Instructor Training doesn’t mandate what exercise begins your program. What’s better than that?
Reason #3 Growth and change
I have led people through this curriculum enough times to realize how amazing the changes in people’s bodies are. The small victories of finding true hip extension or spine articulation are celebrated. What could be more exciting? The camaraderie within the cohort, and the friendships that are made along with the community that is created make for an environment of play where learning is easy. This Pilates Instructor Training adds lifelong friendships and community to the world!
When people ask me, “Why Polestar?” I simply smile because it is the easiest question in the world!
