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