What all the other courses leave out – we define, drill and deliver.

Core Mat I

The Core Mat I program is the foundation of the Power Pilates method. Each subsequent program builds upon the information learned during this course. During this weekend you will learn to teach the 18 beginner level mat exercises and be introduced to Power Pilates teaching tools, philosophy, and teaching formula. These tools are what makes us different from any other teaching course out there. It’s the art of teaching.

The Systems Program presents the same material as the Comprehensive training but in a different format. The curriculum covers beginner, intermediate and advanced level exercises utilizing the Pilates apparatus – Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Ped-o-Pull and Magic Circle – as well as understanding how to work with Special Case clients (i.e. obesity, pregnancy, back problem, neck, knee, shoulder, etc.).

The System Training track allows students to complete their education over a longer time period or while meeting other obligations (work, family, etc.). Systems I, II, and III are designed to be taken together, progressing to a new level within 12 months of finishing the previous level. They should not be looked at as stand-alone programs. Completing all three levels is equivalent to a Comprehensive certificate.
