Recently, I posted a question on Instagram: what do you think is the most important job for a movement teacher? I got a lot of great responses from you, most of which cited helping students feel better, gain confidence, move well etc.

What’s the Uber-skill (not a car service) in achieving all those things? Communication.

If your students don’t understand you, that’s your problem, not theirs.

Watch my video to see some examples of not great teaching that I have experienced and that may be all too familiar to you, and for my suggestions on what to do when you’re not making yourself understood!

Do you have go-to tricks for this? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
