The Structure Of Our Program
The program begins with the Fundamentals of Pilates Teacher Training Workshop. This is a pre-requisite for the program and includes a tower class, interview, basic anatomy and practice teaching to test drive your desire and our approach. Should you decide to pursue the program, the certification includes Beginner and Intermediate systems, with an optional and additional weekend seminar in the Advanced system at a separate cost. You will learn the Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs, Barrels, Pedi-pole, and Pilates Mat exercises. In total, trainees are expected to complete 500 practice hours. These are made up of seminar time and independent study time including observations, session time, practice teaching time and self practice. These hours are to be completed at BodyTonic Pilates Gymnasium, Rhinebeck Pilates or other previously approved studio. To get a Certificate of Completion as a fully certified pilates teacher, enrollees must complete Beginner through Advanced workshops. Completion of just the Beginner and Intermediate training earns a certificate in those two systems.
