Are you interested in developing new skills, discovering new programming ideas for your clients and trying out different Merrithew® modalities?
The Merrithew Mindful Movement Symposium in New York from March 6-8 is guaranteed to provide all that and more. With workshops covering the history and evolution of the STOTT PILATES® method—presented by Master Instructor Trainer and Co-founder Moira Merrithew— to fascial movement and athletic conditioning, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
We spoke to a few of the Merrithew Instructor Trainers who’ll be there to give you an idea of what to expect.
1. Exposure to new workshops and concepts
Lead Instructor Trainer
“It’s the first time I’ll be presenting at the New York Symposium and I’m so excited to meet the community and see some familiar faces there. One of the sessions I’m most excited about teaching is the STOTT PILATES Sliding Mobility Disks™ for Dynamic Stabilization Matwork workshop. It’s a new workshop that requires a lot of stability, strength, endurance and coordination.
“The New York Symposium is jam-packed with programming from different Merrithew brands, so it’s a great way to try a variety of workshops that cover different concepts and modalities, giving you lots of versatile ideas and options that you can present to your clients.”
2. An energizing atmosphere
Lead Instructor Trainer
“It’s great being part of this community and you really experience that at the Symposium. There’s so much energy and it’s a great learning environment. We’re all here for the same reason and the same purpose— to make our bodies, and our clients’, fitter, stronger and more flexible— and to learn techniques that are specific to their needs.
“You have a lot to choose from at the Symposium. The skills you learn at the workshops will support and complement the skills you already have, adding to how and what you’re already teaching to improve your clients’ experience.”
3. Skills you can bring back to your clients
Master Instructor Trainer
“This will be my sixth New York Symposium and I’m so thrilled to have been invited back. Regardless of what workshops you’re in, all of the Merrithew presenters are so proud of the quality of the workshops we offer. I know everyone is going to walk away away excited and inspired.
“We all enjoy taking a break from teaching and getting away and being a student for a day. It’s always such a treat, and seeing friends and colleagues really helps energize us. For me, my main objective is to present content to you that is fresh and has depth, so you leave the weekend feeling inspired and confident enough with the concepts and exercises to go right back to your studio environment and share it with your clients.”
