I know this topic has come up before but I wanted to get some more info. I am an instructor in Australia and will be heading over to either Chicago, New York or London with my partner at the end of this year while he does a 3 month study exchange. What I was wondering is if it is possible for me to teach Pilates in those city's for a short term stay as I would love to keep working. I know it's not a very long time but I have noticed that these situations are not uncommon with Pilates instructors. I have been teaching since 2009 and am certified with the Australian Pilates Method Association. Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.
Once you know where you are going, you can do online research to get a feel for the different studios in the area.I owned a studio for 13 years. For me, someone showing up out of nowhere with a resume was very annoying as I was WITH A ClIENT.I think the best move is to actually DO some pilates at a few places, take a class or a private, THEN email or leave your resume after class. It is flattering to the place to feel chosen. Not just a scattershot attempt to get some work at any old place.
Hi!If you end up going to the States, check out craigslist.org and look through the category Jobs, Subcategory saloon/spa/fitness. People post there job opportunities every day and it's the best way to find a potential employer/ private clients. You can also post your resume on the same website.I moved to LA last year from Moscow and found my work as a pilates trainer through Craigslist within a month. Good luck!
