Learn the techniques, teaching skills and modifications it takes to tailor any Pre-Choreographed Workout towards a more senior demographic. No matter your experience teaching or your level of certification, this workshop will provide you with an enriching, engaging morning to give you the confidence and motivation to start, or keep going, with your Aging Backwards classes.
In this workshop you will learn how to make adjustments to any Pre-Choreographed Workout that are easily applicable, yet massively impactful, in order to adapt a general fitness level class to an Aging Backwards level class. *To teach specialized classes and have the skill set to provide safe, tailored, on-the-spot modifications, you must gain significant teaching experience and complete Level 3.
Note to Level 1 and Level 2 instructors: This workshop is not designed to be a substitute for completing the Level 3 certification, but rather a way to give you basic tools for teaching Aging Backwards classes as you work up to your Level 3.
We will draw from the modifications that were made to the Comprehensive PCW1 routine to make it the Aging Backwards PCW1 routine, as well as specific exercise sequences from your favourite PCWs.
We will also discuss the factors you must consider when teaching an Aging Backwards class. The goal is to help you feel more comfortable and confident about how to set the scene and guide your students towards a safe, efficient, enjoyable workout.
