Sharing is caring...

Pilates changed our life. We are ready to pass that forward. We want Pilates to touch more lives the way it has ours, and we know you get it!

Our vision is to develop and cultivate relationship-based processes for holistic health professionals to improve and enrich client health outcomes together, in sustainable ways.

We want you to be a part of our mission.

Reimagine Your Teaching Practice

True wellness begins with inner health, and living a balanced life that acknowledges and embraces the unique complexities of each individual is the most effective path to good health. Our aim has always been to assist our diverse client base in achieving this goal by offering personalized, holistic healthcare.
We are frustrated with the prevalence of oversimplified and trendy approaches to health and wellness that often discourage people from pursuing their health goals. Instead, we strive to offer a person-centered approach to healthcare that emphasizes each client’s individual needs and circumstances.
Now we are bringing that same ethos to our teacher training.

What's included? (32 Lecture Hours )

As a Pilates teacher, it’s imperative to have a good understanding of anatomy in order to properly teach your students how to move and exercise safely. In this program you will learn:

  • To identify and describe the function of the muscles
  • Name and describe the movements of each joint 
  • Biomechanics: This is the study of how the body moves and functions. As a Pilates teacher, you should have a good understanding of biomechanics and how it applies to Pilates exercises. This includes concepts such as stability, mobility, and proper alignment.
  • Posture: identify common postural imbalances and provide corrective exercises to improve posture
  • Learn and understand the anatomy of the respiratory system and how breathing affects movement

Pilates teaching involves guiding students through a series of movements and exercises designed to improve strength, flexibility, and posture. Cueing refers to the verbal and non-verbal instructions given to students to help them understand and perform each exercise correctly.

  • Describe choreography and biomechanics through concise cues
  • Demonstrate the movement
  • Use visual imagery
  • Include tactile cueing with client’s permission
  • Provide constructive feedback and encouragement to keep clients engaged

Understanding the origins and evolution of the practice allows instructors to better teach their students and to appreciate the depth and richness of the method.

Pilates exercises can be modified in various ways to accommodate different levels of fitness, injuries, and physical limitations. You’ll learn how to:

  • Use a variety of props
  • Increase or reduce range of motion
  • Use or decrease support
  • Choose low-impact options
  • Adjust the intensity
  • Modify for specific populations
