A health- and fitness-qualification that’s backed by science. This Pathway’s curriculum is informed by modern health and movement science to complement and integrate with Allied Health as an intelligent, corrective fitness modality. We invest in compliance, review and quality improvement to maintain only the highest standard of education and professional outcomes.
You’ll have access to the most current teacher training applications, delivered by leading Educators, in some of the finest Studios in the country! We respect the Pilates Method lineage and legacy, but also explore how it interacts with contemporary movement theory, art, science and kinematics to create a truly comprehensive and intelligent learning experience!
On completion you’ll be equipped to teach:
Strategic inclusion of Small Apparatus – also known as Small Props – can elevate your program, help scale the repertoire (accessibility) and boost the overall creative-fun factor of Matwork and Reformer classes. In this Pathway we learn how to intelligently incorporate: the Blue Ball (Pilates Ball), Fitball, Magic Circle (Pilates Circle), TheraBand, Foam Roller, Toning Balls/Hand-Weights, and Dowel Pole.
It’s so much more than teaching a bunch of exercises on the floor, it’s the heart of the Method and its principles underpin much of the apparatus-based repertoire that follows! Learn how to effectively deliver the Matwork in a class setting using our secret, Pilates weapon: the Pilates International Categorisation© (PIC) Programming System. With PIC you will learn how to develop and deliver the perfect Matwork experience for groups of all levels: balanced, flowing, functional and addictive! PLUS gain skills in creative application of Small Apparatus.
