Very often I’m described as a crazy workout person by my friends. This is mostly because I almost never miss a class/training and I always push my limits. I have tried everything from aikido and krav maga, through step aerobics and fitness pole dance, to salsa and dance. When I met Kate I was already occasionally teaching fitness classes as a hobby. I was taking some of her classes regularly and started appreciating the vibe and energy she was creating there. Along the way, I got more interested in diving deeper into the role of an instructor and try to set similar energy and connections I was experiencing in Kate’s classes. I have followed the training for both Partyrobics and CHDE and it gave me a new perspective on teaching. I learned how to take my teaching to the next level that goes beyond creating exercises or steps. It focused on connecting to the music, connecting to people and making a class a safe and warm place; all things I didn’t actively think about before. I would say it added a new dimension to my teaching and made me a more sensible instructor. I am also happy that the concept leaves space for individuality and your own interpretation, so I could always ‘keep’ myself and my style throughout the process. Even though I currently don’t teach Partyrobics or CHDE, I do implement what I have learned in my own classes.
