I’m Officially Sore!

23 Mar

So as some of you might have heard, the department I was substitute teaching English for finally got their regular contracted teacher in, and so I was out of work.

Rachelle had been going to Pilates classes and had been talking to the instructor about various things, and she mentioned she was thinking about bringing in a new instructor.

I think you see where this is going.

Over the last month or so I’ve been learning Pilates and getting myself back into shape, and today was the first day of the first weekend of instructor training.  And since the owner of the studio, who was leading the training, feels it’s official enough to tell everyone else at the session, it’s official enough to spread on a blog:  I will be teaching Pilates at Ying’s Authentic Pilates studio in Guangzhou.  Following the instructor training, and a certification exam, of course, and then there’s a period of apprenticeship and then I can lead classes at the studio and hell, run my own show if the fancy strikes me.

So, y’know, progress.

    Well Chris I have always believed there is nothing you can’t do, but I must admit I hadn’t considered a Pilates Instructor….
    Go get ‘em!

    I certainly hadn’t considered it until recently myself, but I’m always game for a new adventure! Thanks for the words of support!

    Cool! I’m up for a workout next time I see you, Mr. Instructor :)
