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.
