Feeling burned out and bored with your own teaching of the Pilates Mat repertoire? Try teaching a 360 Degree Mat Class by changing your orientation to the Mat after each exercise or a series of two exercises threaded together. Challenge yourself further my maintaining a flow.Once you have established a flow, progress by then moving 360 degrees in seated and kneeling repertoire and then further develop this theme into weight bearing. By varying your orientation to gravity information is more interesting and “sticky” to the brain.

Here’s a great sequence to try:
