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.

BEFORE THE 100s
12:30pm-7:30pm (break 3:30-4:30pm)
Blossom assisted Kathy Grant's matwork class at NYU for 10 years. In that class, Kathy developed a vocabulary of warm‐up exercises that came before starting the traditional Pilates matwork. Before the Hundreds are the building blocks to doing the traditional Pilates vocabulary. This is the heart of Kathy's work.
The exercises have a huge stylistic range, but can be easily assimilated into your teaching. Before the Hundreds include warm up movements that will mobilize, deeply strengthen your abdominals and enhance your body awareness. After this workshop, you will have a new tool kit to get in tune with your body.
Sun June 14th
In this Reformer workshop, we will refresh your usual routine. With the use of some simple images and the occasional inexpensive prop, we will learn how to get more out of our clients and ourselves on this well‐used piece of Pilates equipment. We will follow the traditional order of Mr. Pilates with an emphasis on the most performed exercises. Blossom will share some unique Kathy Grant Reformer exercises and choreographic “inserts” as well as her own collection of simple yet effective movements that complement the traditional work. Come join in the fun, get new tools for your teaching toolbox and revitalize your Reformer routine.
Kathy loved cats and loved the way they moved. They inspired her to make up many different exercises based on their movements. You’ll learn all of Kathy’s ‘Cats’ and how Kathy used them within the traditional Pilates framework.
You’ll discover that the principles, imagery and skills of the cats can transfer to other Pilates exercises both on and off the equipment. Kathy Grant’s cats are a wonderful way to warm up a group of students, assess a new clients spinal movement patterns and stretch without tension.
