This is the industry's most advanced Level 3 Pilates Reformer Teacher courseEnquire today
Learn how to master the most recognisable piece of Pilates equipment and elevate your teaching career to new heights with this hands-on, industry-recognised reformer course.
The Pilates reformer is one of the most recognisable and respected pieces of Pilates apparatus from which it is possible to perform over 500 different exercises. If you are passionate about Pilates and you want to master the universal reformer, this essentials reformer Pilates course will deliver exactly what you need and more.
Reformer Pilates has long been associated with the more clinical application of the Pilates methodology, largely owing to the fact that reformers are often found in rehabilitation environments like chiropractic surgeries and physiotherapy treatment rooms. However, as society, on the whole, is becoming more sedentary, the prevalence of people living with musculoskeletal disorders, pain and poor posture is rife. This is one of the primary reasons why people turn to Pilates and why the demand for Pilates professionals is so high.
Mat-based Pilates is certainly the most popular application of the method. However, it is this popularity that has however given rise to a growing level of interest and demand for more specialist forms of the method, like the reformer. Consequently, there are more dedicated Pilates studios offering their specialist exercise services than ever before.
Like mat-based Pilates, the reformer approach involves performing highly controlled exercises that align closely to the 6 core principles of the Pilates method. With reformer work, however, it is possible to target very specific patterns of movement and areas of the body that just wouldn’t be possible on a mat.
If you are serious about becoming the best Pilates teacher you can be, this REPs, CIMSPA and ACSM recognised reformer Pilates course is definitely for you.
This essentials reformer Pilates course will teach you everything you need to know to become a highly competent and proficient reformer teacher. Specifically, the course includes:
Upon enrolment, you will receive print and digital copies of one of the most comprehensive reformer Pilates manual available. You will also be given access to our online Learner Engagement System (LES) where much of your coursework will be completed.
You will be assessed continually throughout your training courses in a variety of ways.
Upon successful completion of the above assessments, you’ll be awarded the following certificates: Level 3 Award in Teaching Reformer Pilates (CIMSPA & ACSM endorsed) and Reformer Pilates Teacher (REPs endorsed).
This reformer Pilates teacher training programme is suited to anyone who has a keen interest in mastering what it takes to become a reformer Pilates teacher.
Given the scope and depth of the information presented in this programme, we strongly advise that participants attending this course hold a Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates qualification (or equivalent).
Applications may also be considered from students with other fitness industry qualifications (e.g. personal trainers, yoga teachers etc), where they can demonstrate that they have extensive experience of performing Pilates as a participant (e.g. attending classes).
Finally, upon enrolment students are advised to attend as many reformer Pilates classes or sessions as they can in order to give themselves the best opportunity of passing this course. It is not advisable to attend the practical training having never used a reformer.
Prior to attending the first practical training weekend we recommend that you take between 6-10 weeks to complete the home-study activities and familiarise yourself with the contents of the training manuals.
Some students, especially those with more time to study (we recommend around 1 hour per day), or who already have lots of experience in Pilates, may be able to reduce this part of the course.
Important note: Due to the specialist nature of our reformer Pilates courses, we usually deliver them in a dedicated reformer Pilates studio. Therefore, in order to maximise your time on the reformer, it is likely that this course will be delivered later in the working day when the studio has delivered its own timetable for the day (e.g. 11:00-19:00 or 12:00-20:00). Please speak with our Careers Advisors if you need to know more about start and finish times of specific courses.
