The Power of "When"

I was recently asked about the best teaching tool I knew, I thought long and hard about different bits of apparatus and exercises.

Montecito, California

Montecito, California

And then it hit me.

The power of "when".

When to progress a client; when to regress a client; when to listen; when to observe; when to praise; when to cue or when to simply shut up and let them get on with it and move.

I am always in danger of over-teaching, over complicating, over thinking. My challenge is to focus on embracing the power of "When".
