Q3. How is the Reformer Teacher Certification Course unique?
The BTA believes in teaching excellently.
We want to help you help others move well and with ease.
This is why Prehab Trainer Upper Limb and Lower Limb are prerequisites to sign up for this course. The BTA Approach is a client-centric approach. We believe in teaching the bodies (clients) presented, as opposed to mindlessly applying a fixed sequence of exercises to any client.
During the training, you will learn the critical thinking process. This process is imperative for you to teach a class that is relevant, meaningful and effective for your clients.
You will understand and learn how to do each Reformer exercise well and what each exercise’s primary intention is. But more importantly, you will:
- Learn how to look and “read” a body (your clients’)
- Make informed judgements about what you see
- Learn to make modifications or progressions to an exercise as required
