Virtual Pilates Summit

2020 was going to be a magnificent year of Professional Development for our local community. Thankfully, we were able to host Benjamin Degenhardt (Europe) in January and what a success it was! Sadly, we had to cancel our tour of Lesley Logan (USA) and provided refunds immediately to ticket holders.

We picked up the phone and got on to our favourite local, national and international friends and pulled together a virtual line up, creating the Virtual Pilates Summit 26-28 June 2020. It was to our knowledge the very first of it’s kind and we were thrilled to pioneer this type of event. Many have followed in our footsteps and many have benefited by the barriers we have broken.

It was a difficult time to programme a Summit (early May) because our studios were closed and we didn’t know how long for. We were delighted when many states across the country reopened in mid-June. Unfortunately our home state of Victoria and others globally were sent back into lockdown and so the second and third instalments were crucial in maintaining access to professional development and something to look forward to.

The first event was so embraced that we created a second and then a third. We learnt from our mistakes and offered a smooth event with streamlined administration and engagement processes. Success!

Instructors joined from Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, UK, Europe, US and UAE.

Thank you for being such a special part of a turbulent year, these Summits have inspired a new online on-demand learning platform for the Pilates industry. They provided employment to our presenters who had had many conferences and opportunities cancelled and kept our studio commercially operational during a closure.
