All M.A.T. Pilates graduates are required to attend at least one CPE seminar each year in order to maintain their certification. M.A.T. Pilates continuing education is offered at Metropolitan Pilates, Urban Pilates, and The Pilates Center of San Francisco.
Continuing Education is offered year round by Dorothee VandeWalle. Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced workshops are offered each year as well as guest teacher seminars.
This workshop introduces students to the Pilates philosophy and the techniques of the beginner system. The basic exercises are the foundation of a good Pilates practice. Clients can only progress and grow in their practice if their foundation is strong.
This workshop is a good refresher course for Pilates teachers who want to be more precise and meticulous in their teaching and give their beginner clients a strong foundation for a lifetime of Pilates.
This workshop is open to all certified instructors.
