Why Choose Premier Pilates & Yoga's Pilates Teacher Training Program?

Do you want to be the best Pilates Instructor in the business? Then train with the best. Premier Pilates & Yoga is recognized for its high standards and attention to detail and prides itself on its non-judgmental and non-formulaic method of teaching the art and science of Joseph Pilates' work. We limit program enrollment to ensure exceptional teacher-student ratio fostering the individual while simultaneously remaining true to the principles of the Pilates Method.

Premier Pilates & Yoga's 500-hour Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program will allow you to be the best Instructor wherever you teach. Our Pilates Teacher Trainers and Instructors have all studied with 1st Generation Pilates Elders—Joseph Pilates protegées, and are themselves great teachers in their own right. Our program is fully comprehensive and provides the training that you need to begin your career as a fully-certified Pilates Instructor. For over 16 years we have trained hundreds of Instructors how to effectively and efficiently reshape clients' physiques as well as post-rehabilitation using the Pilates Method.

Program Overview

Seminars are taught as “Systems”-- this is a scheme that links all exercises of a certain level together into workable programs from which to build. System seminars will cover exercises on each piece of Pilates apparatus and teach the apprentice to skillfully weave together a session for their clients from the Pilates system & its principles. In between system seminars is when our reviews, clinics, observation, assisting and teaching hours take place. A unique benefit of our training program is that each Candidate will also have the opportunity to take our Advanced Teaching Techniques weekend Course, which is included in the program. This Course adds even more skills to the teaching of the Pilates Method. We will go over advanced touch and manual perception skills, integrated assessment, biomechanics, special populations, specific advanced hands-on assists and muscle release techniques to enhance the Trainee's understanding of the Authentic Pilates Method.
