Mark your calendar for the 8th Pilates Empowerment Summit 2020 in Miami! We have added two rooms, so that means there will be eight sessions for every time block. 33 sessions – more than ever before! What can you expect from start to finish? Here’s a glimpse of what to plan for:

Spiraldynamik® and Pilates with Michael Fritzke and Ton Voogt will explore how to help everyone reach their full potential of optimal movement. Discover new ways of looking at and understanding movement. Head home with a teaching tool box that’s full of new ideas.

This year we’ve expanded our business lecture offerings with topics including Taking Advantage of Tax Deductions, Thriving in Business, Teaching What You Love, Creating Client Relationships, and Performance and Vitality: Essential Oils for your Studio.

Peak is solidly dedicated to its classical education but also understands that the fusion market is booming. So take advantage of this year’s new sessions that explore the fitness fusion trend.

You won’t want to miss our fully programmed fusion studio! It will help to expand your perspective on how to compete against franchises, such as Club Pilates, Megaformer, and Barre for the group class market.  Expect fun-filled jam sessions packed with new ideas for creative group classes on mat and apparatus.
