About our Live TEACHER TRAININGS

ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are intended to bring to life the lessons taught in the distance learning material. They are not obligatory; there are many excellent instructors who have never attended a live workshop. However, it is highly recommended to attend a live workshop. Workshops are interactive and can help to hone your teaching skills and practical understanding of ESSENTRICS.

When attending a live teacher training you gain a greater understanding of the program. You will benefit from live corrections and interaction with other instructors. If at all possible attending at least one live teacher training will greatly enhance your quality as an instructor. All attendees of live teacher training are credited with honors connected to the level of workshop which they attended.

Workshops credit:

If you attend a live ESSENTRICS workshop you will be credited with an honors degree beside the level of workshop which you have attended;

  • Essentrics Certified Instructor Level 1 with honor
  • Essentrics Certified Instructor Level 2 with honor
  • Essentrics Certified Instructor Level 3 with honor
  • Essentrics Certified Instructor Level 4 with honor

LEVEL 1 LIVE TEACHER TRAINING

 Live teacher training Description: A Level 1 live teacher training is intended to leave you with two things: a basic understanding of the ESSENTRICS technique and a better understanding of how to teach your first ESSENTRICS class.  You will still have to memorize the pre- choreographed routine #1 and do your 30 apprentice hours, but the workshop will accelerate your learning curve and give you a jump start toward becoming an instructor.

The live teacher training includes: master class(es), seminars on techniques, objectives and basic ESSENTRICS exercises using the pre choreographed workout #1 as a guide. The workshop leader will analyse all of the exercises, transitions and sequences in pre-co #1. They will also explain the relationship between anatomy, exercises, techniques and objectives. They will teach you how to analyse each movement to achieve the desired objectives and to be aware of common mistakes.

During the live teacher trainings, Master Trainers (MT) dissect each exercise showing how to use each different technique, on different parts of the anatomy to achieve the desired objectives. After your MT finishes analyzing each exercise they turn the tables on you where you the instructor have to teach it back to the MT or other students. Often in a live teacher training (but not always) the full-group is broken into smaller groups where they take turns being student/instructors teaching each other what the live teacher training leader has just taught them. The final day is used to bring the knowledge together where the exercises are turned into sequences and workouts. The final day is exciting to experience how the detailed work during the first two days transforms the participants’ ability to teach a perfect ESSENTRICS sequence.

One of the most beneficial features of all ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings is the hands-on participation of the attendees. Throughout the live teacher training the attendees are encouraged to work together in alternating roles of client and instructor. This method of teaching will help each instructor to perfect their understanding of ESSENTRICS while discovering their personal weakness. 

Participants have found Level 1 live teacher trainings to be extremely motivating by re-enforcing their confidence, understanding and ability to teach ESSENTRICS. It is more beneficial to attend the Level 1 live teacher training after having memorized your pre-cho routine #1.

A Level 1 live teacher training is intended to leave the instructor with a solid ability to teach their first ESSENTRICS class and complete their level one training with ease.

LEVEL 2 LIVE TEACHER TRAINING

Pre-requisite: registered for a level 1 workshop OR attended a Level 1 workshop OR Level 1 certified

 Live teacher training Description: ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are participatory and allow you to work with your fellow instructor/students as you learn to demonstrate and analyse each exercise. They include one to two workouts taught by a master-trainer. The workouts both bring the knowledge to life while being extremely motivating.

The Level 2 live teacher training is intended to deepen your understanding of the ESSENTRICS trademark exercises. They will make you a far superior instructor than you already are and help you secure a higher pay-bracket as an instructor.

Trademark exercises are the backbone of the ESSENTRICS program and are in large part what sets ESSENTRICS apart from other fitness programs. The live teacher training help you best understand the trademark exercises and sequences, why they rebalance the full body muscular skeleton, improve posture, relieve pain and fundamentally change peoples shape.

This Level 2 live teacher training will help deepen your understanding of how and why these exercises are so effective and will give you the tools in order to teach these unique exercises and sequences. The “trademarks” are a large part of why ESSENTRICS increases flexibility and strengthens the body so effectively.

In Level 2 you will learn how to choose and analyse suitable music for Trademark exercises. You will learn to find and follow the correct phrasing in Trademark music in order to make the sequences more pleasurable and powerful. Music is an essential part of an ESSENTRICS workout and learning how to use it correctly will elevate the mood and energy in your classes. At least 3 hours is devoted to music and trademark exercises.

One of the most beneficial features of all ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are the hands-on participation of the attendees. Throughout the live teacher training the attendees are encouraged to work together in alternating roles of client and instructor. This method of teaching will help each instructor to perfect their understanding of ESSENTRICS while discovering their personal weakness. 

Prepare to work hard in this practical live teacher training where each trademark exercise is broken down and analysed in detail from its execution, how to demonstrate it and many nuances. As you are practically doing the trademarks you’ll learn the science, anatomy and techniques behind them, as well as how they rebalance the entire muscular skeleton, stimulate the neuromuscular system and improve posture. You will be expected to teach back what you have just learned to your fellow students and master instructor. You will also learn modifications, corrections and teaching tricks to help you change the shape and health of your clients’ bodies. Get ready to work mentally and physically in this hands-on practical live teacher training.

LEVEL 3 LIVE TEACHER TRAINING

Pre-requisite: registered for a level 2 workshop OR attended a Level 2 workshop OR Level 2 certified

 Live teacher training Description: Flexibility is one of the least understood components in the fitness industry. Flexibility/ range of motion is essential to the maintenance of a healthy youthful body and yet the focus of most fitness programs is generally on strength.  Flexibility is usually thrown in at the end of most training as a 5 minute afterthought. Traditional flexibility exercises target primary muscles while ignoring all the surrounding musculature. Everybody agrees that this approach to flexibility doesn’t work and yet they keep doing it anyway. Correct flexibility should relieve the pain caused from damage done when the joints are imbalanced by too much concentric work. The repercussions of over strengthening and under stretching are reflected in the poor posture, atrophied muscles, ridged painful joints, poor range of motion and joint damage found in many fitness centers and sports facilities.

This Level 3 live teacher training addresses all these problems and teaches how to gain and maintain maximum flexibility and range of motion.

ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are participatory. You will work with your fellow participants learning to demonstrate and analyse each exercise and your partner's body.

The purpose of ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are to bring to life what you have learned in the training manuals and DVDs. The Level 3 live teacher training is 80% practical to ensure that you understand how to apply the theoretical knowledge that you are being taught. Level 3 wlive teacher training will teach you how to safely and efficiently increase client’s flexibility and range of motion. They will also teach you how to use flexibility to relieve pain and reverse common medical conditions.

In level 3 live teacher trainings we spend much of the time learning and analysing many of the flexibility focused exercises in the ESSENTRICS program.  You will learn new and traditional exercises for standing, floor and barre work and how to correctly teach them.  We will show you how to identify common mistakes, and analyse different body types. This will help you understand why clients perform the movements differently from the way you are teaching them.  You will learn how to adapt the flexibility exercises for the many different body types, muscle lengths and levels of fitness. There are many reasons why people have difficulty doing certain movements; we will cover the most common reasons and offer possible modifications (When relevant using the participants of the workshop as examples).

We will discuss why and how ESSENTRICS is used to heal many common conditions and how to increase the healing process for injured clients.  Level 3 live teacher trainings will help you to adapt the program for the different body types, levels of fitness and health conditions. In ESSENTRICS the same exercise can be used for both healthy and injured bodies. This workshop will show you how to adjust a regular ESSENTRICS toning workout to become one for healing.

One of the most beneficial features of all ESSENTRICS live teacher trainings are the hands-on participation of the attendees.
