We recommend you come and experience your course in the flesh but where necessary we can facilitate anyone who can't get to the studio in person (you'll need to have access to any equipment being used). Everyone signed up will have access to all of the course content via our online teaching portal. Our in-person workshops and seminars will be live-streamed and recorded and uploaded to our online portal for access throughout your training. All of your study materials will be provided in the online portal and written exams will also be completed on there.

Workshops Only

Workshops Only - Just the workshops, without the training.

Our Classical Teacher Training workshops cover the entire Classical Pilates repertoire. They also introduce the ‘teaching skills’ that allow our teachers to skillfully teach Pilates to a broad population of people. The workshops are the ‘information’ part of our Teacher Training courses, and then through an internship our students build the skills, knowledge and confidence to become a great teacher. We’re opening our workshops to everyone who would enjoy delving deeper into the Pilates method, without the teacher training internship. You will receive a certificate of attendance but not a certificate of completion of teacher training or course graduation. 

Who might the ‘workshops only’ be suitable for?

  • Maybe you’re thinking about doing teacher training in future but you’re not ready to delve fully in just yet.
  • You’re committed to your personal practise and just want to learn more about the method.
  • You’re already a Pilates teacher and would like a refresher course or perhaps an alternative perspective.

The live workshops will meet on the following dates:

5th March                   13.00 – 19.00
6th March                   13.00 – 19.00
12th March                 13.00 – 19.00
13th March                 13.00 – 19.00
21st May                     13.00 – 19.00
22nd May                    13.00 – 19.00
28th May                     13.00 – 19.00
29th May                     13.00 – 19.00

SOLD OUT – If you'd like to be added to the waitlist, email us at info@pilatescentre.ie

Irish Pilates Teachers – you’re in for a treat! Blossom, owner of Bridge Pilates in New York, is coming to share her Pilates expertise with us! We are especially excited for Blossom to pass on the techniques she learned while studying and working closely with Pilates ‘elder’ Kathy Grant for nearly two decades. Join us at Pilates Centre on the 13th and 14th of June. We’re here to help you learn from the best so that you can get the best out of your Pilates clients!

 

Saturday June 13th 

BEFORE THE HUNDREDS

12:30pm–7:30pm (break 3:30pm–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 mobilise, deeply strengthen your abdominals, and enhance your body awareness. After this workshop, you will have a new toolkit to get in tune with your body.

 

Sunday June 14th 

REFORMER REFRESH 

12:30pm–3:30pm 

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 revitalise your Reformer routine.

KATHY'S CATS

4:30pm–7:30pm

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 equipment. Kathy Grant’s Cats are a wonderful way to warm up a group of students, assess a new client's spinal movement patterns, and stretch without tension.

 

PRICE:

Full Weekend: €600

6-Hour Workshop: €360

3-Hour workshop: €180

We want everyone in our workshops to enjoy experiencing what you're learning, so we have limited spaces available in each workshop to allow everyone to MOVE!

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT! Book by April 1st and you'll automatically receive 10% off your booking in the online store.

 

What Our Clients Say

'I used to suffer from back, shoulder and neck pain on and off as a result of a minor car accident, and the muscles never really recovered. However, since I started doing Pilates, I noticed my back, shoulder and neck muscles are so much stronger than before. I could really feel a difference after 5 or 6 classes. It’s been fantastic.'

Caren

'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.'

Ann Marie

'I started Pilates as an addition to my running training. It had taken me 9 months of running to shave 20 seconds off my 5k run time. It took 5 Pilates classes at Pilates Centre to shave off an additional 20 seconds!'
