Will Tap For Donations

Why am I tapping for Donations?

I’ve decided that I want to pursue a career in pilates. This may seem like a small feat however, did you know the training costs over $6,000. That’s some serious coin. So in order to make it worth the investment, you have to charge people large quantities of $$ to recover your investment. Sometimes, you never do recover, although not everything has to be done to make $$.

What is the Required Training to be a Pilates Instructor?

Requirements for Completion – Mat only

To become a fully qualified Balanced Body Mat Instructor, students must complete the following:

  • Anatomy (strongly recommended)
  • Balanced Body Movement Principles (16 hours)
  • Balanced Body Mat 1 – Course work and module test (16 hours)
  • Balanced Body Mat 2 – Course work and module test (16 hours)
  • Balanced Body Mat 3 – Course work and module test (16 hours)
  • 20 Mat personal sessions, 15 observation hours and 35 student teaching hours.
  • Final written and practical test.

Start at the very Beginning

So I am going to be starting with Anatomy which is a weekend course and costs $600. So all donations I receive will go towards this training. I’ve taken Anatomy many times before but this time I’ll be more serious with it. I took it in college years ago but who can remember that????

Why Do I Need Donations?

I bought one of these. Now I need help with training. Thanks for your generosity!!

To be perfectly honest, I’ve been spending quite a bit on this website and I am having to cut back. There are a number of factors from not receiving as much as a federal tax refund as I usually get to the purchase of The Pilates Reformer which This piece of equipment is essential to my recovery from a 26 year career. And as a pilates instructor you must continue to invest in yourself to continue to bring knowledge and education to your chosen field. As a single mother, let’s just be real that there is not an unlimited source of income right now. So I hope you will consider donating to this worthy cause. I have since cut back on all non essential spending. I’m actually eating the food in my house and only buying what I really need. Also I have to pay for my daughter’s schooling too. But that’s a whole other issue.

I will share my knowledge of anatomy and pilates with you.

I‘m not selfish so I will share what I am learning so that then you will know that I have some knowledge behind what I am saying. I also hope to be able to teach classes at a low cost at some point. I really want to work with children because they haven’t learned bad habits yet. But we will see where I end up. Now you know why instructors charge so much because these prices are outrageous. But if you want to learn the right way, that’s what it takes. I didn’t make the rules.

No Ads on my Blog

I intentionally do not have Ads because it’s a pain to see some big arm with an infection on it with an advertisement for medicine. So that’s another thing you’ll get from me. But no Ads = no $$. It’s OK.

I Will be Able to Stay Strong

Studying anything will immerse me into it. So if I study pilates, I will get strong from all of the practice I will have to do. And then I can help others get and stay strong but first I need the training.

Thank You So Much!!

That goes without saying. But I really do appreciate anything you can give. And I want you to know that whatever you give, it will return back to you in countless ways. As you give abundantly, you reap abundantly. And I need $6,000 total for training so any $$ up to that amount will just be added towards future training. And I wish all the people that give can receive their heart’s desires.

I just Need A Little Help From My Friends.

Thank you for making my dreams come true!!
