This is a rewarding career that offers high job satisfaction, in an industry that is growing at an unprecedented rate particularly on the Sunshine Coast which makes future employment very promising.  With that in mind, choosing the right Pilates Certification becomes very important if you want to stand out in the crowd. With so many options out there, this can often be a perplexing process.

Doing a weekend course is often a waste of time and money in the long run. Time saving approaches to becoming an Instructor directly affect your learning experience and outcomes, depth of understanding and ability to teach a full range of clients in an effective and safe way whether it be a tailored approach or a group class.

Pilates is a complex movement therapy, so it’s a good idea to select a course that covers anatomy, pathologies and contraindications to movement. This will help to ensure you are providing the best Pilates experience for your clients and the best learning outcomes for yourself.

Attaining a recognised certification in Pilates instruction, which is valued by employers and clients alike, requires a thorough understanding of the Pilates method. This is only achieved through thorough training and practice. It’s also highly beneficial to select a course that is recognised by Australian professional bodies such as the Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA) and ultimately one that is recognised internationally.


Pure Pilates is an established studio for over 16 years working within a clinical and fitness environment providing high level tuition that combines highly experienced Instructors and our allied health professional (Osteopath) to deliver a course that is of the highest quality. We have also partnered up with Body Organics online platform which makes our courses comprehensive, easy to follow and flexible . You will also be working in a well equipped studio in beautiful Sunshine Beach. Finally for people on the Sunshine Coast there is no need to travel all the the way to Brisbane for your face to face training and for those of you who are just looking for an excuse to get away, well personally I don’t think you could choose a better place!! We are also a friendly bunch and try to create an atmosphere that encourages you to want to learn so that you eventually develop your own style and passionately pass on to others what we already know is an amazing intelligent movement system we call Pilates.

The Pure Pilates Education Comprehensive Certification is exactly what the name suggests – a fully comprehensive Pilates teacher certification course. It will give you the opportunity to fully learn how to teach the Pilates method to clients from all walks of life. After completing this certification you will be able to choose the Pilates career path that suits you, whether this is as a reformer group class teacher or working one on one with clients in a clinical rehab setting together with allied health professionals. The Pure Pilates Education Comprehensive Certification is an in-depth Pilates teacher training which supports your learning every step of the way.

Our Certification courses focus on teaching you concepts of movements which allows you to understand the repertoire in context and can understand the reasons why and how you teach movement. Once you understand the concepts, your knowledge and development of the repertoire becomes limitless.

You will learn the full range of repertoire for the Mat, Reformer, Wunda Chair, Trapeze Table, Barrel and Arc and small apparatus. You will be taught programming and cueing so that you can assist your clients in achieving their movement goals. When you have completed your certification you will be armed with the knowledge and confidence to teach people with a variety of conditions and pathologies by adjusting and modifying the repertoire to suit the needs of the person in front of you.

Online and Face to Face Learning

The Pure Pilates Education Comprehensive Certification is taught using several different learning modalities, improving your retention of information and making you more confident as a teacher. All of the learning material for the anatomy, teaching methodology and repertoire is first introduced through online video lessons and then reinforced and expanded on in the face to face workshops. We allow you to layer your knowledge and understanding of concepts, giving you quality resources and support to review and progress your understanding over time. Self mastery and supervised teaching then consolidates the learning. You will also have specialised webinars giving you in depth knowledge in a variety of subjects.

No Prior Learning Required

Most Pilates certifications require you to pay an additional fee for anatomy and physiology courses before starting the course. At Pure Pilates Education, this is included in your certification. The anatomy is first taught through our online learning courses and then reinforced and integrated into the repertoire and programming during the face to face modules. It is taught in blocks giving you ample time to digest the material before moving on and building on your acquired knowledge.
