How to recover from creativity burn out

No matter how creative one is we all experience “Burn out”. I believe it’s all apart of the creative process. Burn out is pretty much inevitable and that’s ok as my best flows come after the burn out phase. Flow creations go through 4 phases.

Phase 1- “the spark”. When something you see or feel creates the spark you need to create something new.
Phase 2- “the build out”. When that spark progresses from a idea to actively building and developing a new flow.
Phase 3- “flow peak”. When your new flow is feeling new, fresh and F’’n fabulous.
Phase 4- “ehh”. When your once fabulous flow is feeling worn out and not so fresh.

Now, how do I get back to phase 1?
For starters take a break from that once fabulous flow to help declutter your creative process. It will feel fabulous again in a few weeks. In the mean time watch other people’s movements, from your own clients, other teachers, social media and DPTV. I’m not saying copy everything but maybe you will see one tiny movement that will give you a new perspective. When teaching workshops I often get new ideas from watching other teachers try my workshop flows (BTW, by the time I get to share a flow in a workshop it can feel worn out to me). Seeing my flows on other bodies and seeing their creative additions gives me a whole new view of what else could be done. Just adding a new movement here and there can give the tired flow a “pick me up”. Also, sometimes my client’s simple mistakes may spark a idea. Have you ever had a client turn the wrong direction and you think “wait a minute, that could work”. You never know what will create that “spark” so keep your eyes open and never stop looking? In the mean time tune into dynamicpilatestv.com and steal our moves.

What Is Dynamic Pilates TV & How You Can Benefit From Joining?

Like everything, Pilates has been ever evolving since it began wayyyy back with Mr Pilates himself. And today we have so many interpretations of the Pilates technique, some closer to its original form than others. Dynamic Pilates (whether on the reformer or the mat) is a fusion of classical Plates exercises and more athletic style exercises such as lunges, push ups and squats, all performed with the fundamental Pilates Principals in mind, such as breathing, posture, core connection and alignment.

Let’s Explore What Dynamic Pilates Is…

As well as the variation in exercises, the PACE of a Dynamic class is generally a lot quicker. This doesn’t mean that technique is compromised, as the exercises themselves are still mainly slow and controlled, but the transition from one exercise to the next is quick, meaning less rest periods and more of a challenge!

But even the name ‘Dynamic Pilates’ can have so many various interpretations, and here on DPTV we aim to show you as much diversity and styles as possible. We are excited to introduce to you our guest trainers who will all demonstrate their own unique styles.

Personally, we like to create FLOWS which is a series of movements, with minimal spring changes, so that you can literally flow from one move straight into the next…ouch! Don’t underestimate the power of the MUSIC!

Now, on our channel you might not find any music for filming reasons, but in our studios, we love to crank up the music with a playlist that inspires us to move and push that bit harder! It’s surprising how much your clients will work when they are inspired by their favourite tunes!

So, what are the benefits of Dynamic Pilates?

Fitter, Stronger Leaner. The proof is in the pudding as we say in the UK…or should we say CORE OF STEEL? So what are you waiting for! Try our 14 day FREE trial and full access to UNLIMITED Videos.
