Not only have I experienced burnout, but I’ve worked with so many teachers who have struggled to find consistent inspiration for their teaching.
After our training program, we come out of the gates running. We’re passionate, empowered and ready to change the world through teaching Pilates. But, like any occupation, the daily grind can steal some of the shine away from what once seemed like your heart’s best work.
You deserve to regularly “visit” the excitement of the beginner’s mind through elements that challenge you to expand the perspective of what’s possible with your teaching.
Think about quitting teaching?
Wonder if you’ll ever experience confidence?
Feel totally lost when it comes to promoting your teaching?
Avoid your own practice?
Worry that your client’s aren’t getting it?
Play the comparison game between you and other teachers?
Turn to social media for teaching inspiration only to become more confused?
You want to create opportunities for people to experience healing and empowerment within their own bodies, but you can hardly settle on what you’re going to teach in the next hour. You think “Is this it?” I’m here to tell you that there is MUCH much more waiting for you.
I created this membership to provide a monthly access point to the inspiration that helps us infuse our teaching with the passion and purpose we desire to experience.
Each month, I drop an inspiration-rich experience right into your inbox that delivers content that inspires your mind, body, and SPIRIT! You can access the month’s content from your computer or mobile device through a members-only portal.
Monthly Teaching Mantra
Begin each month with an affirming mantra to infuse your work with direction and confidence that will help you stay grounded and focused for every session you teach.
Members-only Audio Lesson
Listen to exclusive audio lessons from Jenna that guide you towards elements of inspiration, support and growth that follow the theme of the month.
Nourishing Movement Session
Tune in to your own body and recalibrate your practice with monthly video sessions created to set a tone of inspiration that will definitely translate to your teaching.
Writing Exercises For Teachers
Develop personalized teaching strategies with monthly writing prompts to help you think outside of the box to help you deepen the impact of your teaching.
When you have a regular access point to the elements that challenge and inspire you, feeling pumped-up about your teaching is no longer reserved for the next continuing education course.
The Teach From The Heart Membership is here for your continued support. The moment you join, you’ll be guided into a community of teachers who are here like you, to upgrade their experience as an inspired teacher of movement.
What is the Teach From The Heart Membership?
The Teach From The Heart Membership is a fun and creative online program that brings monthly inspiration to movement teachers. Each month, you’ll receive an email that links you to new content in a member’s only portal.
What is the membership cancellation policy?
A: Annual Subscriptions
If you subscribe to the annual membership and then decide to cancel, you can cancel within 7 days of purchase by contacting us at email@example.com Upon cancellation, you will be refunded the purchase price and your access to the Membership content will be suspended.
If you subscribe to the monthly membership and decide to cancel, you can cancel anytime by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org Cancelling the monthly subscription means that you will have access to the content of the month you’ve currently paid for until the end of that month, however, you will not be charged for the following months.
Is the Teach From The Heart Membership just for Pilates Teachers?
The membership was created by Jenna Zaffino, a Pilates Professional and will have certain reference points to universal themes of that profession, such as teaching private and group sessions. That said, the content, exercises and classes are for any teacher who teaches movement to other human beings. Mantras and affirmations can be applied to any modality. Audio lessons and writing exercises are steeped in critical thinking and problem-solving and movement sessions are all mat/floor based and can be done anywhere.
Is the Teach From The Heart Membership For Me?
If you teach movement on a regular basis, but desire perspective and education that reaches beyond the studio walls, then this membership is PERFECT for you. You will not be learning “how” to teach specific movements, but rather, receiving access to tools that will help you discover how YOU will teach with confidence and strategy for success and fulfillment in your professional role.
How much time will it take me to work through each month’s content?
The beauty the Teach From The Heart Membership is that you can move at your own pace. Generally speaking, movement and audio sessions will be 30 minutes in length, however, you may choose to spend more time with the material and/or pick and choose what you need that month. Consistency is key to any practice and I will urge you to stay on track with at least one aspect of each month’s lessons to keep a regular investment in your practice.
What if I can’t finish all of the content each month?
You will have access to all of the months all of the time for as long as you are a Teach From The Heart Member. You’ll always receive a monthly reminder of new content, however, you can pace yourself as needed. As the content grows, you’ll find a vast library of access points to inspiration and support systems that will be available to you for as long as you maintain your membership.
