Description:
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. 

**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 PCWs.

Breakdown:
  • Introduction to the basic principles of  Essentrics
  • Learn the exercises of PCW1
  • Aging Backwards Workshop
  • Daily one-hour  Essentrics  Class (except Friday)
Prerequisite: Registered in the Essentrics Instructor Certification Program. 

Note: You do not need a background in health, fitness, dance, anatomy or physiology. Some of our best instructors have never taught prior to Essentrics. We do suggest you learn the basic muscles and skeleton at this level (included in your Level 1 instructor certification manual).

What to bring: Level 1 instructor certification manual + exercise mat 

Cancellation Policy: Live Teacher Trainings may be refunded in full (minus a $75 admin fee) — up to 30 days prior to the event date.     


    

**Once we receive your payment,  we will use the email associated with your order to get in touch with you.  Please  be sure to  keep that in mind and check  your email account  for updates!

Description:
Your Pre-Choreographed Workout routine is used for your Apprentice classes and your exam to pass Level 1.

Memorizing a one-hour Pre-Choreographed Workout (PCW1) might seem a little intimidating at first, but we guarantee that with some practice and proper instruction, you’ll succeed in learning and teaching this routine to your clients in no time!

PCW1 is a classic one-hour, full body (standing and floor) workout that is challenging, yet easy to learn with straightforward choreography.

This PCW1 Class occurs 2 months after your Level 1 Live Teacher Training (LTT). At this point, you may have memorized your routine or parts of it; the live refresher PCW1 class will ensure that you’re on the right track and will answer any questions that you might have regarding the routine.
  
Note: We suggest that you begin learning PCW1 before this event so that you’re familiar with the routine and get the most out of this workshop. This workshop does not take the place of the Live Teacher Training, however, it will assist you in perfecting your class and ensuring you’re ready for your live exam.  

Breakdown:
  • How to avoid common mistakes while teaching
  • Ensuring proper timing, positioning, speed of exercises and effective cuing
  • Smoothness of transitions
  • Improving the general flow of your class
  • Basics of applying music to your routine
Prerequisite: Registered in the Essentrics Instructor Certification Program. 

What to bring: Level 1 instructor certification manual + exercise mat 

Cancellation Policy: No refunds will be given for cancellations.

Skip the video portion of your exam by scheduling a live one-on-one exam with one of our examiners!

After having completed a Level 1 Live Teacher Training to enhance your understanding of the Essentrics program, taken our PCW1 class to perfect your routine and teaching skills, and completed your Apprentice hours—you’re now ready to do your Live Exam!

During the live exam, you will need to teach the entire PCW1 workout in front of an examiner—who will provide you with a full assessment of your routine and technique, along with suggestions to improve and better your class—in person.

Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get examined—live—and find out immediately if you’ve passed your Level 1 Certification!

NOTE: If you would like to schedule your Live Level 1 Exam before or after these two dates, please contact us and we’ll be happy to schedule another date with one of our examiners. Email: training@essentrics.com

**You may also submit a recorded version of yourself teaching PCW1 (at any time), instead of doing a live exam. See your Level 1 Certification Manual for details.
