Introduction to Pilates – Ultimate Pilates Theory Course

What do you do to become a pilates instructor and do not have any qualifications or prerequisites? This course will lead you to become well versed to commence the Instructor Training Course.

This is a brand new online course.

There are many people who have become so taken with the Pilates Method, either from having completed so many classes, or because they have recovered from a back or other condition, that they wish to become either full time or part time pilates instructors.

In order to you to be covered by the regulatory insurance requirements in the fitness industry, certain criteria need to be fulfilled if you are not qualified in the Movement Space.

If you are based in anywhere in the world this course is for you!

This course is available to anyone wishing to become qualified as a Pilates Instructor.

Knowledge of Pilates Theory is essential to grasp BEFORE commencing any course, whether a Mat or Reformer instructor. This applies to Personal Trainers, Physical Therapists/Physiotherapists, Exercise physiologists, etc.

If you have no qualifications in movement, then before commencing this course, or at the same time as doing this course, you will need to consider completing a fitness qualification, preferably as a Personal Trainer in your country through a recognised Fitness Organisation.
