Meredith Rogers is a well respected and internationally known Pilates instructor based in California.
She is BASI Faculty and many know her from the online Pilates program Pilates Anytime, where she has been presenting since 2009. Today Meredith travels the world sharing her love of the Pilates method and we are thrilled to host a series of workshops and classes with her in November!
Back to Basics (Day 1)
The Advanced Level repertoire is simply a variation on a theme, a theme established by Fundamental Level movements. This connection is of vital importance, and is in fact, the process that all those who practice Pilates (should) experience. It is this process, which, is the teacher and not the movements themselves. Without this process the method has no substance.
Five Advanced Level movements have been selected to exemplify this point. Each movement will be part of a developing sequence. Without a doubt, there are many such examples as each movement belongs to a series or “family” of movements.
The vital stage of mastering the Basics should not be sacrificed to simply “perform” Advanced Level work. This stimulating learning experience will culminate in a valuable outcome - Back to Basics!

The Art of Cueing (Day 2)
This course focuses on one of the most fundamental of all Pilates teaching skills, “cueing”. The basis for all communication between teacher and student, cueing demands great skill; information must be conveyed, received and integrated within milliseconds to bring about the desired result. Good cueing is integral to any skilled teaching session.
This exciting, in-depth workshop focuses on the various lines of communication between teacher and student. Participants take part in a series of cueing exercises and drills that enhance the necessary teaching skills for effective communication and successful teaching. Each cueing exercise teaches workshop participants how to better communicate with their clients through advancing their verbal, tactile and visual cueing skills.
