My Best Advice for New Pilates Instructors

Support, tips, and tangible advice for new instructors to start their teaching career with confidence.

Starting Your Career

Recently in an interview, online a viewer asked me one of my favorite questions “What is my advice for new Pilates Instructors?” I love this question because I wish more new instructors had support, tips, and tangible advice to start their teaching career with confidence.

Advice to help start off your teaching career with confidence
Starting a new career can be overwhelming. I love giving advice to help new teachers begin with confidence.

10 Pieces of Advice

  1. You won’t always know what your niche is from the start. So, be open to teaching all kinds of people, even special cases (ideally have a teacher you can go to for support or advice) so that you can learn even more and find where your voice is, what clients you are drawn to and what clients are drawn to you.
  2. It’s ok to say no. As much as I want you to get out there and teach as much as you can I want you to maintain a work schedule so that you don’t hit burn out.
  3. Talk to everyone about who you are and what you do! I find most new instructors have more clients from the get-go because they are so fired up. So take advantage of your newbie months!
  4. Yes, you need to learn more but you don’t need to take EVERY workshop that comes your way. Teach more bodies don’t just collect information.

  1. Read my book!
  2. Watch this masterclass course
  3. Don’t worry about being so new. Most clients won’t care how long you’ve been teaching. They care more about how you can help them!
  4. Get a website but don’t obsess about social media
  5. Talk to your CPA about being and LLC or Scorp as independent contractors are taxed higher.
  6. Maintain your Pilates practice!!! This will keep you learning and staying inspired.

I could go on and on and on! If you’ve got a question you can contact me here or comment below.  I’m excited for you!
