taught by Sandy Shimoda

cost: $100

We want what’s best for our clients but have we set up a learning environment that holds them back? If your clients rely on you so much that they aren’t moving fluidly through their workouts, aren’t familiar with their exercises or equipment, or haven’t developed an awareness of their bodies, something needs to change. Some of you are ready for this change but aren’t sure how to implement it. Building independence in your students starts with your teaching. In this mini workshop Sandy will share the processes that she found most effective in promoting independence in her students, and in the studio overall.

This workshop is open to all practitioners.
