Pilates Teacher Training Certification

Next round begins September 2023

This is a comprehensive Pilates certification where you will be trained on all apparatus within the Garage Pilates studio space. This program is rooted in Classical Pilates work. Trainees will be taught the Classical repertoire on all pieces of equipment and also given valuable Contemporary versions of these Classical exercises. It is our belief that Classical Pilates work is what our industry is based on. To be a Certified Pilates Instructor is to know who Joseph Pilates is and thoroughly understand his Method of working out. We also feel that the human body has different postural challenges in 2023 than it did 100 years ago. We would even go as far as to say that if Joseph Pilates were alive today, he would likely be adding to his training repertoire as well! After completing this comprehensive Pilates certification, Instructors will know basic anatomy, how to cue, perform and modify Classical Pilates exercises and competently teach a smooth Pilates workout flow for all levels of fitness.

When deciding what certification program you would like to affiliate yourself with, we encourage you to consider that being a Pilates Instructor, by definition, infers that you know who Joseph Pilates is, his history, his apprentices, his Classical work and how to modify it to best serve the body in front of you. So, please do strive to have on your résumé a certification program that is very well-rounded and will provide you the proper skills and toolbox to teach in any Pilates studio you might encounter. Your Pilates Instructor Certification is your college degree! You want to be proud of this and take it with you as a diploma which will properly prepare you to teach anywhere in the US or internationally.…  Reach out directly to discuss in-depth what your needs are and if our certification program might be a good fit.
