1 STEP FORWARD, 2 STEPS BACK. 22 Jul 2009
Ugh, here I go again. Let me preface this by saying that I'm not posting about anyone in particular and I'm not writing about Lithe beginners who have taken our Immersion course.
We're officially installing a new policy as of today and all of you regular Lithers will be oh so happy, every "green," rookie Lither will thank me in the end and our oh so "patient" instructors will all be walking on air.
Our previously "mostly mandatory" Immersion is now absolutely 100% mandatory and a pre-requisite for all of Lithe Method regular level classes at EVERY LOCATION.
We don't care how fit, friendly, fun and fabulous that you may be and we don't want to hear the but, "I've taken yoga, Pilates and/or another fitness method that uses a ballet bar"--It's not Lithe Method and it's always a hot mess when beginners with no Immersion are in our regular level classes.
Ya know, I'm not sure if people think that we're blowing smoke up their bums when we tell them that Lithe is best learned, taught and programmed the way that we've created it. We are not a drop in studio!
Bottom line is, if you want to Lithe, you're going to come through the program correctly, commit to taking the Immersion (or at least most of it) or two private cram courses so that our regular classes are not anything but what they should be and you get the results and attention that you want and deserve.
