Pandemic Task Force for Pilates Teachers

A Career Hub for Pilates Teachers

career advice Apr 22, 2020

If you're like most Pilates teachers, then you've had a different career or job prior to Pilates. Whether you switched from the corporate world, a career in education or any other field, you've made the decision to step into a more rewarding career. Or so you thought.

Yes, teaching Pilates is incredibly rewarding. We help people all the time. We make them feel better in their bodies and minds. We get them out of pain. We get them into the best shape of their lives. That's rewarding. But how about monetarily? Not so rewarding, huh?

Maybe you've already noticed that a career as a Pilates teacher is not like any other "regular" job. Most of the time you won't get any benefits, such as health insurance. Often you're not even employed by the studio. You might be categorized as an independent contractor.

Do you know what that means? You are on your own. I know this truth can hurt, but it's not helpful for you to be sheltered from this reality. Instead, I want to open your eyes to the fact that you need to take care of yourself. Especially now! 

During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, some studios weren't able to offer any classes which left you as the teacher unable to make money teaching.

Here's the thing: You - the teacher - are responsible for your career, not the studio you work for. 

This means you have to start taking the initiative to set up your virtual teaching space, reach out and get students and set up a way to get paid by them. 

That's why I've created a free Pilates Career Hub on Facebook.
