The fastest way to understand the theory behind Essentrics is to put it into practice, which is why we want you to begin teaching as quickly as possible. In the Level 1 Live Teacher Training, you will learn the breakdown of your first 1-hour Pre-Choreographed Workout (PCW1), how to perform and teach all the exercise sequences correctly, and how to be aware of (and correct) common mistakes. You will also be introduced to the principles, techniques, anatomy, philosophy, physiology and objectives of the Essentrics program, and discover the relationship that exists between them. This will enable you to confidently achieve the desired objectives from your workout when you begin teaching your apprentice hours.

With the success of our books, Aging Backwards and Forever Painless, and the visibility of our shows on PBS—all of our teachers are seeing an influx of older students who have a lower level of mobility and chronic pain. This is an important population group that needs our help. This Level 1 Live Teacher Training will include a special half-day workshop which will introduce you to the needs of this population, and give you the beginner level tools to teach them. The workshop includes a breakdown of your PCW1 with a gentler, slower “Aging Backwards” approach. You will gain the tools necessary to confidently teach your apprentice hours to beginner groups who are more sedentary, less mobile, or older in age. 

**If this clientele is one that interests you to teach, or if you yourself identify with this group – this is a must-attend  training.**


Upon completion of this Level, you will have the choreography and skills necessary to teach an  Essentrics  group class and purchase any of our PCW's.
