Sarah Duley has been a GYROTONIC® Pre-trainer since 2011.
This course is for those wishing to become teachers of the GYROTONIC® method. It can also be taken by anyone, meeting the pre-requisites, who is interested in enriching their own practice. There is no commitment to enrolling in the rest of the program.
I encourage you to visit the GYROTONIC® headquarters website where you will see the whole teacher training program explained: https://www.gyrotonic.com/Gyrotonic_Level_1_Education.aspx
Venue: Pilates Plus, 117 St Margarets Road
Teacher: Sarah Duley, certified GYROTONIC® Pre-Trainer
We take a max of 6 trainees to our two towers ensuring that everybody has plenty of time to practice the movements, observe others and take notes.
Students must be familiar with progression 1 material on the pulley tower before enrolling in a pre-training course. This would usually mean a series of one on one classes with the teacher training provider, unless participants wish to organize group sessions. Sarah will be happy to discuss prices, circumstances etc. with each individual in order to make it viable within a short period of time.
The course needs to be taken in a minimum of 6 days / 30 hours. My suggestion is two long weekends:
Friday / Saturday / Sunday - 5hrs each day or possibly
Saturday / Sunday / Monday - 5hrs each day or even
Friday / Saturday / Sunday / Monday - 4hrs each day
This can be arranged as we wish, to meet everyone’s availability, and discussed when we meet and know who will be enrolling.
The base fee for a pre training course is set by GYROTONIC® headquarters and is currently 850 Euros.
In addition to this there will be a studio fee of approx £100 for each participant.
For those wishing to go on to the Foundation Course, It is mandatory that no more than 12 weeks passes between a student completing the Pre-training Course and starting the Foundation Course. For this reason I work closely with master trainers Beatrice Pasqual and Elaine Puren from Studio 74. London Bridge. They will be holding a Foundation Level One training around August / September.
Clearly each individual will have many questions and it is important to think carefully before enrolling. I therefore invite anyone seriously interested to an informal interview to ensure that you understand the way in which the whole Foundation Course is run.
“One would be hard pressed to find anyone better at teaching GYROTONIC®. Sarah is always one step ahead with new techniques and equipment, but only allows you to use new equipment if she thinks you are ready. I highly recommend Pilates Plus!”
“Sarah is a highly skilled and inspirational teacher. She is disciplined and firm but full of generosity and humanity. Can’t be beaten!”
“What Sarah doesn’t know about the human body is not worth knowing. I have had one-to-one Gyrotonic sessions consistently twice a week for 8 years. Over time my damaged shoulder has got better, without the surgery I was told I would need, my posture has improved and I continue to play tennis.”
