SKIN FITNESS w/ JENNY
Spotlight Recap | Instructor Questions:
1. What were your initial thoughts as you completed this workshop? How do you feel as the instructor/host? Every time I feel I learn something new as a teacher that will help me grow and develop the class. Next time I might like to break down the layers of massage so the students can get a better understanding of what techniques might work best for there current skin type/concerns
2. What did you do/teach differently in this workshop in comparison to your weekly classes at Rae? I felt more comfortable with the flow and being more interactive with the students. Id like to keep improving on this aswell as get the music vibe down.
3. What was your most enjoyable moment?
Seeing the students work so beautifully with their hand movements. Getting to know them better with the end q&a
4. What are you hoping to share with your students who missed this experience?
to please jump in the next class! all classes will be open to beginners aswell as returning students. Each week I would like to add in some new techniques and flow while maintaining an easy to follow and learn guideline. Getting student feedback of what they would like to focus on is always helpful.
5. Any additional bts photos / videos please share a dropbox so that I can relink them on a dedicated blog post.
I plan on doing a video this week covering the 3 main techniques for face massage. To can give students a glimpse of what will be covered that week and each week I can post a new short video with a new topic related to face massage that can tie into the upcoming class.
