By the time you begin studying the material in Level 3, you will have completed at least 100 teaching hours and worked with a wide variety of clients including those with tight, weak and injured muscles.
Full body flexibility is one of the most important features of a healthy pain-free body. Level 3 introduces the healing elements of Essentrics and teaches you how to use our flexibility exercises to unlock your clients’ bodies, relieve them of pain and tension, and help heal common chronic conditions. Our systematic approach to increasing the full range of motion of every joint is valuable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
The expected time to complete Level 3 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 one new Pre-Choreographed Workout 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 one 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.
