When you teach in a major city, you will encounter both limited space and high operational costs. However, many studios limit their capacity by only offering group classes utilizing one type of equipment.
For example, a typical studio may have only 4 Reformers, so they
might limit their class size to 4 students for a Reformer
Circuit classes are an effective way to increase the number of participants per class by mixing different kinds of large equipment, so that they don’t all have to be on the same equipment at the same time.
This can be much trickier than it sounds, and will be a valuable asset to your studio. When you prepare to teach with circuits, you will need to think strategically about what equipment you will use. A well planned circuit class has many benefits for small studios.
When you learn to teach a circuit class format, you will:
- Increase revenue for the studio
- Increase your pay
- Increase client satisfaction with tangible & rewarding new challenges
- Maximize popular class times
- Increase number of participants without increasing overhead or equipment
- Develop your ability to multitask
- Maintain a flexible practice that will adapt to the unpredictable ebb and flow of client attendance
In this workshop, we’ll break down how to organize a circuit class with various large equipment. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to use our formula, and the equipment you already have, to plan circuit classes in your own studio.
This is a 2-hour workshop in which topics are presented by the Instructor Trainer, best practices are demonstrated. The workshop is interactive and assumes students have completed the Intensive Reformer Course. The first hour participants will be taken through an example of a circuit class so they can feel the workout in their own bodies. Then we’ll break down format and planning.
- How to plan a circuit class for maximum clarity and ease of teaching/learning;
- How to build a circuit program with various equipment;
- How to layer modification to simplify the exercise for both the teacher and student;
- Review best practices for instructing exercises.
