Three top reasons to attend the 2024 China Symposium from a Merrithew® pro

Top 3 reasons to attend the 2024 China Symposium

After a five-year hiatus, we are thrilled to return to China for the 2024 Mindful Movement Symposium! We are eager to celebrate the power of mindful movement with great enthusiasm and fresh content! Guiding us in this enlightening conversation is Merrithew Master Instructor Trainer, Kim Kraushar, who previously presented at the 2019 China Symposium. Kim offers a wealth of experience and unique insights into what attendees can anticipate at the upcoming symposium.

Before we dive into what to expect at the 2024 China Symposium, mark your calendars:

Date: June 21-23, 2024
Location: JW Marriott Hotel in Shenzhen, China
Schedule: Featuring courses and workshops taught by Kim, along with Lead Instructor Trainers Rouxchelle Denton-Cooke and Carol Earle

This symposium is the perfect opportunity to develop new skills, gain valuable insights, earn your Continuing Education Credits (CECs) and work towards your Specialty Track designation.

Here are three compelling reasons why you should register now and join us in Shenzhen!

1. Network and develop special friendships

While you’re likely already familiar with our courses and workshops, our symposiums offer a fantastic opportunity to connect with the team behind the programming and educational materials you love. Kim has been presenting with Merrithew for more than 15 years, and has witnessed the incredible friendships that have formed between instructors and presenters who have attended our conferences. She believes that “it’s these special relationships you develop with people who share your passion for movement and wellness that will keep you coming back year after year.”

Get ready to immerse yourself in Merrithew’s culture and engage with its amazing team of presenters in China.

2. Renew your energy and refresh your routine

Instructors often devote themselves to guiding their students and clients, sometimes neglecting their own growth and learning. Amidst the demands of teaching, it's easy to overlook the importance of prioritizing one's own development. As an instructor, our symposiums offer you a unique chance to step away from your teaching roles, prioritize your personal development and immerse yourself in an enriching experience that not only enhances your skills but also revitalizes your passion for the art of Pilates.

By dedicating time to rejuvenate your body-mind practices in China, you can return home with fresh insights and exciting new material to inspire and elevate your community.

3. Gain practical learning experience

At the China Symposium, you'll participate in popular sessions covering foundational concepts, such as Prenatal Reformer and Breast Cancer Rehab Programs. Additionally, you'll get to engage in Total Barre® workshops, where you'll be challenged and invigorated, gaining hands-on experience with new techniques. Explore STOTT PILATES® fundamentals beyond the mat, incorporating small props to enhance your practice and dive deep into ZEN•GA® programming, which is our unique blend of mindful movement principles partnered with current myofascial science.

Kim notes that the highlight of attending our conferences is “learning experientially from top-tier Instructor Trainers through thoughtfully developed and effective mindful movement programs.”

The Merrithew Mindful Movement Symposium has garnered praise not only from our instructors but also from attendees like Wenqi Hao, who participated in the 2019 China Symposium and is now a Merrithew Instructor Trainer.

According to Wenqi, “Merrithew Symposiums are a convergence of industry elites and Master Instructor Trainers, offering a platform to share and exchange valuable insights on Pilates practice and advanced teaching methodologies. It represents a precious opportunity for profound learning and application, promising a comprehensive uplift in coaching abilities through engaging courses and workshops. I strongly encourage every student to seize this chance to delve into the endless possibilities of Pilates within this inspiring and growth-oriented setting.”

Each of our events is tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of instructors in the region, offering educational programming that is relevant and valuable to their community. The upcoming China Symposium is another occasion to gain new knowledge, advance your skills and create connections that will propel your career.
