Pilates is a career. It is incredibly enjoyable and constantly rewarding. Pilates is a passion occupation that requires a lot of commitment and dedication – both during your training and in the years to come as you evolve as an instructor through the full system as it was meant to be. Pilates is not and never a ‘Mat’ or ‘Reformer’ Certification. We have an obligation to be fully capable of helping those who place their trust in us by passing on the full body of work and wealth of experience.

The completion or certification of the program does not guarantee employment.
