Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training.

 

September- December

2021

 

We are pleased to invite you to our Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training certification. Movement Therapy Studio instructor training is designed to empower critical thinking through movement concepts. Classical Repertoire will be taught, closely following Joseph Pilates’s base concepts, exercises and philosophies. Additionally, and keeping in mind that all bodies are different, focus will also be given in order to adapt each body to a resilient individual form and create self-awareness. The CPTT is guided on a safe and evidence-based approach to Rehabilitation. 

Our teacher-training program is 450 hours long and is divided into 6 weekend modules.

The training is designed and divided in 2 basic phases: 

    • To teach Classical Pilates Mat work, depending on the trainee to perform and understand the basic movement motor for the advanced Mat work series and the intelligent use of props. There will be 2 Modules, 40 hours presential.
    • To teach on the Pilates apparatus and use of props (Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair, Ladder Barrel and Spine Corrector), depending on the trainee to perform and understand the basic motor movement for the advanced series. There will be 4 Modules, 80 hours presential. 

During the program, the student will be given the opportunity to work alone, with a mentor, in pairs or in groups. In order to enter the program, the student must be at least 18 years old and should have attended at least 5 to 10 Pilates sessions.  All modules must be completed in order to attain the comprehensive program certification.
