are you thriving? Or simply surviving?
In my experience, Pilates Teachers tend to carry a certain level of guilt surrounding wanting more from their career.
After all, aren’t we doing Pilates all day long?
Helping people to move better?
Whether you are crunching numbers behind a desk or teaching roll-ups,
it’s not uncommon to experience a point in your work where you ask
“How long can I continue like this?”
