Learn More About This PPN Pilates Course


Exercise is and should always be as inviting and exclusive as possible, especially when it comes to special populations groups such as pre and postnatal women. It’s the role of an instructor or teacher to ensure this happens.

Pilates is one such form of exercise that is ideal for pre and postnatal women as it can be used to maintain stability, promote postural awareness and strengthen the pelvic floor and abdominal wall. Being able to adapt Pilates for your pre and postnatal clients is guaranteed to make you a very in-demand instructor.

In order to help broaden your skillset, we’ve created the Level 3 Pilates for Pre and Postnatal Clients course. With this, we’ve combined the Level 3 Pre and Postnatal Instructor qualification with a specialised hands-on workshop.

To really propel your studies forward we’ll provide you with bespoke hard copy and digital manuals and access to LES (Learner Engagement System). It’s here you’ll find practice quizzes and a series of exclusive video lectures delivered by a registered midwife.

What You'll Learn

This specialised course incorporates a wide range of Pilates information, designed to provide an instructor with the skills to effectively adapt Pilates exercises for pre and postnatal clients.

  • Planning and Adapting a Pilates Class for Pre and Post Natal Clients

How You'll Be Assessed

    I completed my Level 3 mat Pilates qualification with HFE and had a fantastic experience. My tutor checked in with me on a regular basis and was always there to answer questions, help with any IT issues and provide general motivational support!

    It wasn't long being back home when my tutor phoned me up to jeer me up to pass my theory so every day he would call me up to go through my studying. Within a week i had the confidence to go through my theory exam and to my delight i passed which in my eyes was one of my biggest and proudest moments of my life.

    My support tutor - Stacey - was fantastic, really helpful with any questions I had... She was great with feedback and comments on any of the submitted work and always happy to answers any questions.
