Flow is a Principle of Pilates. While you may use it specifically for planning a session. This week’s challenge is using “Flow” to Spring Clean the functionality of your studio. Flow in your studio allows for income to flow in.
Last week you did a “drive by” of your studio and took a session with the eyes of the client. Were you surprised by what you saw? Share with us in the forum how this first week’s challenge went. This week let’s take a look at the setup in your space.
When you first set up your studio props area and equipment it worked. It flowed or at least at the time it made sense. During Spring Cleaning: Flow week it’s time to check-in. What worked before may not work today. When you teach a client there are times you have to re-think the plan. The same goes for your studio functionality.
- Take a look at your space. When you teach:
- Are the props you need at the ready?
- Are there enough props?
- Are the balls inflated enough?
- How often do you have to leave your client to grab a prop?
Having enough props for each station allows you and other instructors to easily assist and/or challenge the client they are teaching. A new client taking a session will feel the instructor is fully capable and prepared for the session if the instructor is able to stick by and keep the session moving.
This month’s Spring Cleaning challenge continues. This week keep in mind that Pilates sessions done with minimal movement for the maximum flow will create results for your clients, busy schedules at your studio, and profit with your Pilates.
