Based on Joseph Pilates' original Contrology concepts and techniques, this mat Pilates course opens up a range of possibilities for instructors once qualified.
Pilates is one of the most popular and effective forms of exercise for those looking to improve musculoskeletal health and function. It’s also perfectly suited for anyone looking to enhance flexibility and deal with certain aspects of injury or rehabilitation.
Our Pilates instructor course follows Joseph Pilates’ original contrology principles and exercises, which is a testament to how effective they are and how much they’ve stood the test of time. This qualification has been created with your success in mind. So, whether you have designs on becoming a Pilates teacher, developing your own Pilates brand, or even branching out to instruct at retreats worldwide, you’ll be able to do so once qualified.
The course is fully accredited by YMCA Awards and is recognised by CIMSPA. We specialise in blended learning, which combines practical attendance at a nationwide venue including Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham, London and Glasgow, with home-study support from our expert tutors. This is backed up by learning materials that have been designed and delivered by some of the industry’s most experienced professionals.
There are no formal entry requirements for this Pilates instructor course, although if you do have a fitness instructor or personal trainer qualification, you will be at a slight advantage. We do however insist that you have prior experience of performing Pilates exercises or attending classes regularly. This will enable you to get the best possible head start.
The best Pilates instructors have unrivalled attention to detail and are able to deliver classes in a precise and controlled manner – at the end of the day, that’s what Pilates is all about.
Our Pilates course takes the principles and fundamentals of Joseph Pilates’ original Contrology method and applies it to the modern exercise environment. Our training has been specifically designed to make you a more adaptable, more confident and ultimately more successful Pilates instructor.
