What You’ll learn:

You’ll master the entire repertoire of Pilates mat exercises from beginner to advanced, and build the skills to teach a safe, productive Pilates mat class. You’ll also develop functional understanding of the musculoskeletal system so you can properly assess students’ posture and alignment.

We’ll delve into effective visual and verbal cues, how to make hands-on adjustments, smart class progression and sequencing, and modifications/contraindications for special populations.

You’ll leave with the keen eye of a Pilates teacher, and the ability to move students forward in a positive way.

We’re proud to offer this training with our partner Synergy Sports Medicine  & Rehabilitation
