Is change scary? ~ Yes!
Is change exciting? ~ Absolutely.
Is change risky? ~ Definitely!
A couple of months ago I got connected with a wonderful local Pilates teacher who invited me to take a class at her studio. I am always eager to build new connections so I jumped all over this opportunity. I was super excited to have a private session with Monica Hoekstra, the owner of Absolute Pilates in Charlotte NC, because she has a beautiful new Gratz-equipped studio. Even though I went through the contemporary training (Balanced Body) I have deep love and respect for the Classical Pilates.
Monica has a very extraordinary Pilates story. She started as a STOTT Pilates teacher and even offered STOTT teacher training for many years in Charlotte NC. And then she decided to take the Classical road. She was ready for a change as a teacher. It’s understandable, as teachers we always love to grow and expand our teaching toolbox.
BUT Monica went beyond her personal teaching style. She completely changed her studio philosophy, her class offerings and of course all apparatus.
So was it a scary change? Was it worth it in the end?
