This year’s Winter Education Days from Dec. 6-9 at the Toronto Corporate Training Center features 14 hands-on workshops aimed at developing your skills as an instructor.
You’ll take away new programming ideas, learn how to tailor your teaching technique for a diverse clientele and gain exposure to different Merrithew® modalities. Discover how to integrate a variety of props in unique ways to help your clients maximize the benefits of mindful movement.
“As instructors’ progress through their careers, they’ll find clients coming to them with many different needs and limitations. The best way they can prepare for this is to stay up-to-date on their education, so they can better service their clients,” says Merrithew Lead Instructor Trainer Sarah Jarvis.
“Winter Education Days is all about learning new things to add to your current repertoire to keep your sessions interesting and to keep you successful in the industry,” she says.
