Pilates Instructor Training
The contents of our course are based on the actual practical needs of Pilates instructors and students. (Although anatomy is covered it is only to the basic level required to teach Pilates.) We concentrate on teaching you what you will need to know to be successful. We can help you avoid the "teething problems" and give you insights into how you too can be a successful teacher. This is your chance to learn the “secrets” of Pilates teachers! In addition to traditional Pilates we also cover a number of lifestyle issues which in reality are often an integral part of one-to-one tuition. This includes areas such as stress management, positive thinking, student needs, and more.
With the continuous assessment system to evaluate your ability as a Pilates instructor, you are evaluated during each session. We believe that this is far better than a one off exam. Because of this there is NO exam!
The great advantage of this course is that you can arrange your schedule for training to fit into your lifestyle and not be weighed down by time commitment. The course takes approximately 20 hours based on your needs and your ability to teach by the end of the course you walk away a qualified instructor.
Should you feel that you need a refresher post graduation, don’t hesitate to call us as we care about your teaching skills and the quality of safety and care you provide your students. Will always make time for you!
