The Certification Course Includes
The Pure Pilates Education Mat & Reformer Certification is designed to teach you all of the repertoire you need for teaching Mat and Reformer group classes as well as guiding clients with common pathologies and conditions in a safe and effective way to help them towards better movement. You will also be given an introduction to the repertoire of the Pilates Barrel and Arc. After completion you will be able to work in reformer studios, teach group mat classes and teach in more clinical settings on the Reformer and Mat. This certification forms the foundation of the comprehensive training, and will allow you to understand the repertoire and programming which is then taken a step further with a deeper understanding of pathology, modifications and apparatus in the Comprehensive Certification course.
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 concept your knowledge and development of the repertoire becomes limitless.
Online and Face to Face Learning
The Pure Pilates Education Mat & Reformer Certification is taught using several different learning modalities, improving your retention of information and makes 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
The Pure Pilates Education Mat & Reformer Certification is taught online and in person with the content divided into three blocks of learning. We have worked to create layers of understanding and knowledge so that you can refer back to your online material throughout your course and use your face to face training to practice what you’ve learnt and really focus on your skills as a teacher. This will allow you insights into movement, repertoire and pathology without being overwhelmed by too much information in one go. You will first receive access to each block’s online course material to go through before the face to face workshops and tutorials which will build on the knowledge acquired through the online learning.
