If you want to become a Balanced Body Pilates instructor, you’ll need the following:

  • a great teacher training program
  • a facility to do your hours (or home equipment)
  • mentoring and coaching along the way
So the million dollar question is how to figure out which training program is the right fit for you?
It’s super hard to compare the various companies because they all list things differently, are set up in various ways and include diverse things.  So we have tried to make it a little easier on you by compiling an easy to read spreadsheet that includes the major training companies (as well as some smaller ones) and how they compare apples to apples.
