I often do the article CEC tests from the magazine. The pieces tend to be very well written and informative, and it is a good way to remind myself to keep up regularly. It also means I get informed on a range of topics that might normally be off my radar, and most of which I find helpful in creati...

You could also go the route of taking a ...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 20, 2015

My favorite place to go is a yoga center in the Berkshire mountains.... I am sure there are places like that near you..... go someplace, take a notebook and do some...

How often do you change your routine/choreography for fitness classes?

6 Answers | Asked by Christy Sanchez on Sep 06, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

All of your answers are really interesting. I think this is something we all grapple with... too much change and they can't adapt, not enough and they get bored.

I had a really interesting workshop at the 2014 Idea conference about doing Pilates with an older population with bone density issues.

Do your newly certified instructors take other instructors classes?

7 Answers | Asked by Deborah Kulmer on Sep 12, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

I love taking other instructor's classes. When I was first working in fitness I did it a lot. These days, as I work part time, and am always struggling for enough time to teach, do what is needed for my family, prep for teaching, and maintain my own meditative and physical practices I don't alway...
