Do You Sometimes Struggle With Your Verbal Cues in Your Pilates Classes?

Is your voice tired every night after a day of teaching?

Do you suspect you might be over cueing and overwhelming your clients with instructions?

Are your students constantly looking at you, the screen, or the person next to them to know what they are supposed to be doing?

Do your students never remember what you teach them? Does it feel like you're starting over every single week?

Do you feel like you have to repeat yourself a thousand times for them to get it?

Are you unsure whether your student is unable to do the movement the way you ask her to, or if she just doesn't understand you?

Are you afraid of pushing your clients too hard out of fear of hurting them?

Are your students complaining that your classes are too easy, but it's just that they're not doing it correctly? Are you wondering how to get them to feel what you feel?

Do you not know how to react when someone in your class has a pathology that you don't have any experience with?

Learn My Proven and  Simple Three-Step Cueing Formula That's Clear and Concise Even For Your Beginner Students

Many newish Pilates teachers think they need to come up with new and creative ways to describe movement in each class. They try to be clever, creative, and precise. They think they're "stealing" when they use phrases, imagery, or variations they've seen someone else use. Does this sound like you? I encourage you to think about it differently. There are three phases in the development from beginner to master. They are: 

  1. Imitation
  2. Integration
  3. Innovation

When you're just starting out, it's not only okay, it's best to repeat exactly what your teacher or someone you admire says. Copy their exact words. Isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery? There is really no need to reinvent the wheel at this stage.

That's what you'll learn in this Bootcamp. At the end of the 30-days, you'll feel comfortable and successful cueing any movement you want.

Hi, I'm Mara Sievers, a nationally certified Pilates teacher (NCPT), creator of Pilates Encyclopedia, and former studio owner. I’ve taught literally thousands of classes and private sessions over the past 14 years, teaching between 20-40 classes each week.

At one point, I had a 6-month waitlist at my studio, because everyone and their neighbor wanted to work with me. There are many skills that contribute to being considered a great teacher, but verbal cueing is definitely one of the most important ones.

Here's some feedback I received after teaching my mat class at the 2019 annual PMA meeting in Monterey, CA:


"Thank you so much. :) Your mat class is so amazing!"

"Really loved your class. Great cueing. Really felt great after class. Thank you."

"Mara set the tone for a perfect morning workout! Her class was informative and very precise!"

"One of the best classes I’ve ever taken."

"Very good class. She teaches which body part goes with the movement. You have to think about it and focus on what you’re doing. Very intense but good and clear about she’s teaching."

"She was wonderful! I would highly recommend her! She has a soothing voice and knows how to make us center."

"Improving efficiency was LOVELY!!! Thank you, Mara, for slowing down the movement and allowing for more efficient and effective spinal mobility!"

"Loved the concepts and the building blocks for spinal mobility."

"She was beautiful in her knowledge and depth of spinal mobility. Excellent."

"I felt amazing after this class! Such great sequencing - preparing each body part for the next motion. Thank you!!"

"Tell her to come next year and teach more."

"My key takeaways from the Cueing Cure Bootcamp were the importance of saying less, how to be more precise, and to avoid negative cueing. I learned a lot from Mara's tips and from the experience of the other teachers. I used some advice in my virtual class yesterday and it worked well with my clients."

"For someone who struggled to be comfortable with silent time in my classes, it was great to know that it's OK to be quiet. I've been in the field for a long time and have studied different cueing so nothing was new but it was nice to hear my thoughts reiterated. Mara is very intelligent, honest, and relatable."
