Pilates Teacher Training and Mentoring

I have been teaching those who want to be Pilates teachers for over 10 years with my unique positive style and true Mentorship/Apprenticeship Programs. Teaching the work of Joseph Pilates as he created it with the why and how of the full body of work. I also include the work of Kathy Grant and her Before the Hundred work. Her tools along with the original work of Joseph Pilates is a true journey of the Pilates Method “Contrology”.
