In-studio Lecture- Over the course of 6 weekends, we will learn Anatomy, History of Pilates/Scope of Practice (as required by the PMA®), and a breakdown of every exercise according to choreography, muscle focus, and contraindications. We will also spend time studying sequencing, and learning how to put together programming for private sessions, duets, and group classes.
80 hours of observation can be completed in person or online. Watching experienced teachers teaching classes/clients is one of the best ways to absorb information. Take notes as you observe. Pay attention to how the teacher structures the session, how they cue, which props they use.
These 100 hours can be practiced at home and in-studio. You can practice while following along with your manual or by taking a class/session. The idea behind these hours of self-practice hours is that by practicing the movement over and over again, the exercises become familiar and embodied. When there is a comfort with the movement, teaching feels like an act of sharing something that’s known from within — as opposed to repeating a set of memorized instructions.
Once the training begins, we encourage you to begin teaching as soon as you can. Teach anyone you can get your hands on — friends, significant others, family, etc. The more body types you see moving the better.
We strongly recommend that you work with at least one client for 10 or more sessions, so that you have the opportunity to witness growth within the client (and yourself).
The observation, self-practice, and practice teaching hours can be completed at XTP if scheduled in advance. Upon completion of your hours, you will schedule a date to take your exams. Upon passing both a written and practical exam you will be a Certified Pilates Teacher.
