Build on the Basics with the Pilates Mat Teacher Apprenticeship
Starting April 2023
The foundation of the Pilates Method, Matwork, was the original. The apparatus; Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, etc. were all invented to facilitate the Matwork. This course lays that foundation and connects the Matwork to the larger Pilates Method.
What you will learn…
-The course includes a full repertoire of Mat exercises - The original 34 exercises from Return to Life as well as dozens of Mat exercises developed later in Joseph Pilates’s career or by his students.
- As the Matwork is a part of the larger Pilates Method as a whole, you will be taught the Matwork as it relates to the other pieces of apparatus.
-The Matwork is also improved by the use of smaller props. This course will show you how to use these props in ways that facilitate the Matwork in the same ways as the larger apparatuses.
Who is the course for?
-This part-time course is for anyone looking to start a career as a Pilates Teacher.
-For anyone curious about becoming a Pilates Teacher, but not ready to commit to the Comprehensive Course.
