Classical Pilates is more than a repertoire of exercises. It is a unique exercise system that combines the mind and body under the guidance of a teacher who has knowledge, skill, and intuition in order to bring one’s body into better balance. The best Pilates instructors not only have these qualities, but they teach organically with a discerning eye; their hands for proper spotting and placement; and succinct verbal cueing to teach a system that is tailored to individual needs. With over twenty five years of experience, MeJo has created The Classical Syllabus® seminar series, for instructors looking to go beyond their certification. It is for teachers who have already completed a Comprehensive Training Program, yet looking for a deeper understanding of the Classical Method, and how to apply it to real people. Its purpose is to enhance and sharpen teaching skills by clarifying the exercises and methodology of teaching it; to learn how to assess a student’s body by spotting their imbalances, strengths and weaknesses; and most important to learn how to apply the Method by creating an individualized system that will most benefit any individual’s body. Teaching at her own studio and overseeing up to 400 private lessons a week, (with Romana as her personal mentor) MeJo gained experience in applying the Method to various populations, including: professional athletes, those suffering with chronic back pain, amputees, Parkinson’s disease, knee injuries, scoliosis, and many other ailments. In this unique series, MeJo will share her years of study with several first generation instructors including Romana Kryzanowska, Sari Mejia Santos, Kathy Grant, Edwina Fontaine, and Jay Grimes. She will provide valuable training from her years of study with Romana, her personal experience teaching the Method to various populations, and her experience as a Teacher Trainer in Romana’s Pilates Instructor Training Program.
