STARTING March 10th 2018
Our Classical Teacher Training will guide you towards becoming an intuitive, highly knowledgeable Pilates instructor with the full Pilates repertoire at your disposal.
Pilates Centre is committed to passing on the tradition of Classical Pilates by offering teacher training that honours the integrity of the method developed by Joseph Pilates. We can very easily trace the lineage of what we teach back to Joseph Pilates: Pilates -> Romana Kryzanowska -> The Taylor Sisters (Amy and Rachel) -> Us. On the training programme you will attend workshops and complete an in studio apprenticeship, learning how to become a skilled and confident teacher of the Pilates repertoire, meaning this programme is so much more than merely learning the movements.
Advanced Classical Teacher Training Diploma
You will learn all movements for all levels on all Pilates apparatus – Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Ped-O-Pul, Barrels and all small equipment including the Foot Corrector and Magic Circle and others. Upon completion you will be issued with a Pilates Centre – Classical Teacher Training Diploma and will be eligible to be certified by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), the international awarding body for Pilates instructors worldwide.

Intermediate Classical Teacher Training Certificate
You will learn to teach to an Intermediate level on all Pilates apparatus as above. Upon completion you will be issued with a Pilates Centre – Intermediate Classical Teacher Training Certificate that recognises your ability to teach to an Intermediate level. Should you then wish to train in the full repertoire at a later stage you can sign up for our ‘Advanced completion programme’ (specifically for anyone who’s graduated from our Intermediate programme).

"When I first started at Pilates Centre I was constantly aware of my back pain due to a disc injury. Within no time of taking a couple of classes a week I started to forget that I had a back problem at all! It's just great."
