You will enter this level having had lots of teaching practice from Level 1 and a basic understanding of class flow and techniques. We recommend learning one more Pre-Choreographed Workout before diving into the Level 2 theory.
Essentrics Trademark exercises are considered the most challenging aspect of every Essentrics workout. They involve large, fully body standing movements that focus on deep strengthening of the spine and core. These sequences are unique to Essentrics and are scientifically designed to rebalance the entire body’s musculature and decompress the spine while working through muscle chains, improving posture and relieving back pain.
Level 2 will teach you the elements that make up our Trademark sequences and just how to deliver these incredible results. In this level, you will be learning 33 unique trademark exercises, transitions and positions. These are the building blocks of the Essentrics program.
The expected time to complete Level 2 is 3-9 months.
Please note we require you to complete each level within a one year timeframe as you work towards becoming a Certified Level 4 Instructor.* This timeline keeps our instructors on track for success within each level as well as in their classes.
The second annual requirement involves learning two new Pre-Choreographed Workouts per year. This will help you expand your class repertoire and offer diversity to your students. You may choose to learn as many as you like during the year, with two being the minimum.
* If extenuating circumstances happen to arise, we are happy to work with you to find the best solution to help you move forward; this may include putting your teaching license on hold and resuming when you are ready.
