Manual - Total Barre:The Foundation Manual 5

Detailed Instructor manual

By , CA, US on August 11, 2016

The MERRITHEW™ Total Barre™ Foundation Manual contains science backed intelligent information for their signature turnkey Total Barre program. All of the information you need to deliver barre programming in your studio from sequencing, body alignment and safety considerations are included. Step-by-step instructions and the STOTT PILATES® Basic Principles are utilized in all of the exercise sequences. You will learn the 11 segments of the Foundational course, music tempo suggestions and class progression when introducing newer segments of choreography. If you are a visual learner you will find detailed photos in the Foundation Manual for all of the exercises, beginning with the start position and mindful movement awareness. I attended the Total Barre course at a MERRITHEW’s Licensed Training Center, John Garey Fitness & Pilates, our Instructor Heather brought everything together for us with her gold star professionalism.
