Description

Even the most experienced and talented instructor needs to occasionally re-examine the foundational work with fresh eyes.  The Fusion  Refresher courses were built to feed your creative fire!  This program is for instructors who are working professionally, but are looking for a new perspective, a jolt of inspiration, and continuing education.  The program will review and pick apart the work to give a more holistic view that goes beyond the choreography to dig deeper into the mat work and to investigate the why of what Pilates instructors do. Our Fusion Online Refresher courses will reinforce and expand on all of the knowledge you’ve gained through your professional experience.  Think of this course as an open discussion between you and our master instructors.

If you have already taken our Apprentice program – please contact us before purchasing the Refresher program.

How We Teach:

We use a multifaceted approach to teaching by taking a look at different angles on the same concept. We use the following innovative techniques to go deep into the work, fully exploring each concept in it’s entirety. The following a are the different features that we use to help you log your hours and understand the why of Pilates, instead of just the what:

Course Packet

You will print your Course Packet when you first begin the course. It contains Video Trail Guides to give you hints on what to look for as you watch the videos, space for notes and questions. There are also questions that go with our Mentor’s Cut and Let’s Discuss sessions (more below). Everything is organized by session number, so it’s easy to stay organized.

Master Log

This is the part of your course packet where you log your session work as you go. When you’re finished, submit this log to us to receive your Certificate of Completion.

InstaStudio PopUp™ Video

Each segment starts with an InstaStudio PopUp video. This is a real class or session being taught in a real working studio by a real master instructor. This counts as an Observation hour, but it is so much more. Instead of sitting in the corner of a studio watching a session, you will be able to pause, to rewind, to take notes and re-watch anything you’d like. In addition, we make it a bit more interesting by adding our PopUp graphics, which will appear on the screen every few minutes to bring your attention to something that is happening in the session or class – an idea, a tool, an anatomy tip, or a movement principle that you should be aware of.

Session Video & Articles

The second session of each segment contains a video and an article which take a part of the main concept, and break it down even more. A short video and article which will cover important Pilates Mat techniques that you may have missed in your training.

Mentor’s Cut™ Commentary Video

Have you ever watched an experienced Pilates instructor and wondered, “What are they thinking? Why did they do that?” Well, here’s your chance to find out. This is an opportunity for you to climb into our master instructor’s head for a behind the scenes look at what their thought process is, and why they are making the choices they make. First, you’ll read through some questions about this session in your Course Packet. Then, you’ll watch the same session or class that you saw in the previous session, but now with an added audio commentary by our instructors explaining what’s behind their process as well as other helpful tips and suggestions which will help guide your practice. As you watch, you’ll answer thought provoking questions in your Course Packet.

Let’s Discuss Video

These sessions include a discussion of the questions from your course packet by Jen and Casey. You can discuss these questions in our Forum.

Focus On

We’ll give you some topics and techniques to think about and use during your work week with clients.

Blog / Video / Forum

And as always, you have access to the Video Podcasts, Blog, and Forum of our main site that comes with your Free Subscription.
