Pilates Teacher Training

Pilates Teacher Training

We started our teacher training program in 2011 in response to an on-going need for high quality Pilates Teacher Training.  

These days, well trained Pilates Instructors are in exceptionally high demand.  Since the beginning of the pandemic, we've seen industry-wide staffing shortages at the best Pilates studios, throughout the world.
 

 

Our Classical Pilates Education Program

We set out to develop training that doesn't just teach you the choreography for a bunch of exercises, but teaches you how to work in a variety of settings, with clients of all levels and abilities.  Training that prepares you for working with injuries and 'special circumstances'. And above all, training that teaches you: 

* HOW to teach

* HOW to listen to and read movement patterns

* HOW to become a reliable guide and partner to your clients in their fitness journey.

 

Our programs provide an exceptional educational experience that will launch your new career or reinvigorate work you are returning to.

We offer Comprehensive Teacher Training that prepares people to become nationally or internationally certified. Our programs meet all requirements to take the exam for the National Pilates Certification Program. Our course graduates have a 100% pass rate on the National Certification Exam!

We are committed to your education.

Beginning at square one, we teach you about the skills, choreography & teaching skills of the Classical Pilates repertoire on all apparatus.  This builds to the most advanced levels. Throughout the process, we explore the philosophy behind the work and the development of teaching skills while giving you opportunities for one on one attention to develop your own skills. 

In addition to regular meetings with your mentor, our program director leads a twice per month discussion group (included in tuition).  These structured opportunities for communication provide you with support to stay on track with the self-directed aspects of your learning and give you feedback as you develop new skills. Our discussion group is a great place to connect with other students, participate in group explorations, follow up on homework assignments and more! 


                 

We mentor our students.
Our experienced mentors track your progress and are always available for answering questions, providing guidance, and feedback to help you troubleshoot any bumps in the road.

We give you a push when you need it and are here to cheer you on!

 
Long-term Career Happiness!

Your initial training is a crucial part of the journey. But it is just the beginning. Once the initial foundation of knowledge is laid, our long-term teaching success and happiness comes down to our skill at conveying our knowledge and our ability to continually circle back through our developing experience to find fresh perspectives. 

For this reason, our programs place heavy emphasis on the philosophy behind the work and the development of teaching skills.

Our training programs reflect our view that a rich understanding of the material, a full 'toolbox' of teaching skills and a strong personal practice add up to a successful, enjoyable, and long-lived career!  


We are small!
With limited enrollment, our programs are smaller than most.  This gives us flexibility and a virtual guarantee that you can access the support of our instructors whenever you need it!
