Self-mastery hours are exactly that. They are hours that you spend mastering the exercises you have learnt on your course. So hours that you spend practising either on your own or with your fellow students, can be noted in your log book without verification.
However in order to ensure you are on the right track, we do recommend that you book a 1-1 session with an educator or mentor at least once a month. You can share these sessions with a fellow student and split the cost between you. These hours are also classed as self-mastery in your log book.
Most Friday afternoons we run classes for students in both mat and studio. We recommend students attend at least once or twice a month if possible. See the website continuing education page at polestarlife.com for details and booking. At Moss Pilates we also run reformer and studio club classes throughout the week and these are all taught by Polestar instructors. Any classes you attend can be entered in your log book as self-mastery.
You can also go to classes elsewhere that are taught by a Polestar qualified graduate. Alternatively you can also watch videos on Pilates Anytime featuring a Polestar educator and use these hours towards your self mastery as well.
