As a Traveling Pilates Teacher you must be organized, on time, and ready for anything!
In my workshop on how to handle traveling as a Pilates teacher, it was clear to me how little most Pilates, fitness, and yoga teachers really know about working in other studios, cities, states, and countries.
Yet, demand is growing for teachers willing to travel.
What are some things to consider as a potential Pilates Nomad?
How long is your commitment? Hours, days, years... have everything clear. Maximum hours per day, maximum days per week... it is all important.
Who pays travel costs and expenses? To and from at beginning and end of contract and for annual vacations.
If out of your home country, what paperwork do you need for a work visa? Don't go into another country as a tourist and then work. You can be arrested, sent home, and banned from any return visits.
What currency will you be paid in? Are local banks safe? You may need to wire your salary home each month, so be ready to ask.
And before you go, make sure you know what the food, accommodation, and social scene will be like so you are not shocked.
If you take care of the basics, you can then just sit back and focus on teaching and on your experience. You will be more present for your sessions and you and your clients will benefit!
