Why a Pilates Mentorship Program at All? (Answered by Risa Sheppard)
While discussing the difference between the way I was taught by Ron Fletcher, my friend and college from those days lamented: “The difference between how we learned from Ron was that we simply “absorbed” the work. We simply followed him, took classes from him, and emulated his teaching which I still use to this day.
Who Teaches the Sheppard Method Mentorship Program?
Risa Sheppard, owner of Sheppard Method Pilates who is backed by more than four decades of experience, along with her team of senior staff, lead our Pilates Mentorship program. Janine Venable, also part of senior staff, leads the study of anatomy throughout this program.
How Long Does the Mentorship Program Last?
Our West Los Angeles Pilates Mentorship Program takes place in a one-on-one setting as opposed to a group class which meets 2 to 3 times a year on one day a week. Therefore, this program lasts as long as the client requires to finish his or her program.
We adhere to the Pilates Method Alliance of completing 450 hours, 50 of those hours with one-on-one instruction. We do require that all hours are made up within one year of the lab work competition. Essentially, it takes about 7 to 12 months to complete.
*Time of completion may be shorter with one-on-one training session.
*Typically, we meet for 1-2 hours, twice a week. However, we remain flexible with each mentors’ specific needs.
The Benefits of a One-on-One Setting
In a one-on-one setting, the instructor can better adapt the teaching to each person’s individual life choices and aspirations. In the Sheppard Method Pilates Mentorship Program, it is common that our team will use another teacher or teacher-trainer to assist with the instructions, giving you the attention and guidance needed to feel confident in your own future instruction!
