A good way to observe is to take part in a group class being taught by a Polestar instructor which you can log as either an observation or self-practise hour. This can be a mat or equipment class.
Another good way for comprehensive students to observe is to book a self-practise hour at the studio when there are other Polestar instructors booked in with clients. Then you can absorb what is being taught in a less formal way. You can then log this as either observation or self-practise time.
We are mindful that for students living far away that finding a Polestar teacher for observation is not always easy which is why we do allow some of these hours to be with a non-Polestar instructor.
However the point of observation is to hear the teacher giving appropriate cueing which will not necessarily be the same with non-Polestar teachers. We therefore also recommend that you watch Pilates Anytime videos which feature Polestar educators.
We also suggest students attend our Friday Club classes and use these classes as either self-practise or observation hours.
