LITHE MASTER INSTRUCTORS 17 Mar 2014
Can you believe that Lithe is NINE years old!? Some of your instructors have been teaching the method for almost a decade, and that is something to celebrate! I'm excited (and very proud) to announce our Master Instructor status.
What it is: a combination of the number of years teaching (4+) and the actual number of classes taught (1,000+). The status is something that is earned; not simply given. The Lithe Master Instructor embodies a commitment to Lithe, instruction with confidence and selflessness, and continued study of the method. Other elements that define this title include: maturity (and understanding) of Instructor injury prevention, utilization of voice (instead of body) for energy, and the perfect, precise, total command of a large studio.
We all know that Lithe is different, and teaching it is the ultimate multi-task. Many people assume that teaching Lithe is like teaching a grounded workout that rarely changes, like Yoga/spinning/barre or Pilates, and they couldn't be more incorrect. Lithe Instructors are triple threats and it takes many years to become a well-oiled teaching machine. Our instructors are forever in-training and constantly learning new workouts.
At commencement, we'd like to announce the inaugural team of Master Instructors! Congratulations to Tiffany Nork (teaching since 2006), Krista DeNofa (teaching since 2008), and Bari Rosenthal (teaching since 2009) on this level of excellence in their instruction of the Lithe Method. Ladies, thank you for working with me and loving this incredible company. You ARE Lithe, and Lithe wouldn't be what it is without you!
