If you're thinking of a career change and love your Pilates – have you considered the Elixr School of Pilates Instructor training program?
Long-term Elixr member, now instructor, Jenn De Jesus did just that! After a successful career in the corporate world, Jenn made the leap to become a Pilates Instructor and hasn't looked back. Read her story here:
Why did you do your Pilates teacher training in the first place?
When I worked in a high stress corporate world, for years if I was having a bad day I always fantasized about becoming a Pilates instructor...
Why did you choose Elixr?
I had been a member for ten years so knew their style, I was working full time so the weekend course suited my schedule
How has your Pilates Teacher Training changed your life?
The grass IS greener on the other side, when I'm at work now I don't have fantasies about other careers. I really enjoy what I do, helping others feel good about themselves, and it's also improved my knowledge of fitness, my own Pilates technique and motivated me to get stronger and fitter and I feel MUCH happier and healthier all around as a result of both of these things.
Elixr School of Pilates courses are run over the weekends so are well suited for those with full-time work or week day responsibilities. Once you've done your face-to-face training, the practical hours and theory study is flexible – you can fit this in around your schedule, and you have 12 months to complete your exam and become a qualified Pilates Instructor. The Elixr School of Pilates offers Matwork, Reformer and Studio (Cadillac, Barrels and Wunda Chair) teacher training, plus Workshops for Instructors – Pilates & Pregnancy, Matwork with Props, Reformer with Props and Jumpboard.
The first step of the journey is the Fundamentals course - a one-day workshop that covers anatomy, physiology, the Basics of Elixr Pilates and the Elixr Pilates principles. It's $300 and our first one for 2017 starts on February 5.
