If you want to become a 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?DSC_0135_12.29

It can be very confusing to compare the various Pilates teacher training companies because they all structure their programs differently and they all include different information (especially in the areas of choreography covered and contraindications discussed).  So we have tried to describe our program in the clearest way possible. The best way to learn more about Pilates teacher training is to sign up for our newsletter or call our studio directly at 602-750-5799.


What should you get in a Pilates teacher training program?

  • Basic anatomy and basic biomechanics
  • Pilates principles and pre-Pilates exercises
  • Safety issues on equipment
  • Choreography, contraindications, equipment set up, muscles activated and breathing patterns of Pilates exercises on all the Pilates equipment
  • Intro to protocols for pregnancy, osteoporosis, basic back problems
  • Intro to teaching techniques
