Learning a new skill can be a daunting prospect. Not only do you have to put yourself in a very vulnerable position of admitting that you know absolutely nothing about something, but you also have to be willing to try things that may make you feel very uncomfortable.
There's a model in psychology* used to explain the stages of learning and acquiring any new skill; the process you have to go through to get good at something.
The last 5 years of my life have been an ongoing example of this model which goes something like this:
STAGE 1: UNCONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE
This is all of us at the beginning of any new endeavor. Unaware of just how not good we are at it.
By Studio Founder & Lead Instructor Nic
We are passionate about moving, about HOW you move and about how you FEEL about moving.
So we decided to put on a full day of free classes, postural assessments and 1-to-1s to celebrate movement with you.
We had over 90 people attend the day and it was amazing to see so many old and new faces trying out some tried and tested class formats and some brand new such as PHIIT - combining Pilates with High Intensity moves.
Thank you to everyone who attended, I am looking forward to getting to know you more.
