Peti element instructor

At Peti element studio we strive to raise the bar in the Pilates industry by tailoring exercise programmes according to the client's needs and expectations. All clients go through an orientation session where they receive directions about the types of classes in our STOTT Pilates repertoire that are best suited for them. The introductory session is also an opportunity for the clients to get their posture and potential medical conditions assessed. Clients with a history of medical conditions are advised to start private classes on the Pilates machines with a physiotherapist. To ensure a high-quality experience, all of our instructors undergo STOTT Pilates or GYROTONIC training. Extensive training in other movement and therapeutic methods gives our instructors the ability to assess clients quickly and create specific programmes to address their needs.

Being one of the leading brands in the world of contemporary and anatomically-based Pilates methods, STOTT Pilates training is the basic pre-requisite for all our instructors in order to get a better understanding of the nature of our work. A unified base of knowledge makes it easier for instructors to work together, exchange opinions, debate, observe each other and train together.

Instructors-in training can start substituting and taking over group classes after extensive domestic staff training. Private training includes weekly observations of group classes and getting acquainted with the Pilates apparatus and various props used during classes. Instructors also undergo private mentoring hours with instructor trainers who prepare them to start programming for different types of classes and populations. To complement their training, instructors start learning from anatomical literature and STOTT Pilates DVD repertoire as they progress.

The whole educational procedure is designed to teach future instructors the Peti element studio protocol, satisfactory anatomical and biomechanical base of knowledge and how to become independent and confident movement specialists. Our approach is based on the science of physiotherapy and kinesiotherapy.

We advise newcomers to first build experience in leading group classes in order to form their own teaching personality and then apply to become an instructor at Peti element studio.

Before future instructors begin their educational training, they must start visiting our classes as a client. After a two-month period of attending classes, we organize an audition for all candidates where they are asked to performer a 15-minute class and then receive feedback from staff members. The short presentation is the base upon which we decide over the next steps.

We take great care that the content of our classes is not left to chance. We pride ourselves in the instructors we choose to represent our brand that is committed to high-quality, safety and experience. All our instructors are dedicated to continuing education and self-growth. The time invested in the whole process is what makes our instructors stand out in the crowded market of movement professionals.
