Pilates Teacher Training


Pilates Teacher Training Courses

Pilates is a system of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the early to mid 20th century. He called his technique "Contrology", but these days it is more frequently called Pilates or The Pilates Method. Joseph used body weight and equipment to exercise. The 'reformer' has become one of the more popular machines used by both Pilates studios and health clubs.

Pilates exercises teach awareness, in particular awareness of the alignment of the skeleton. The exercises have a particular focus on the spine and aid in strengthening the deep postural muscles that support good alignment.

Matwork pilates uses the individual’s own body as the resistance or weight to challenge the body. The mat exercises are designed to be progressed gradually. The technique of each exercise is very specific.

When performed correctly they will improve our posture, restore good alignment and create good movement patterns. The result is to build stability, strength and mobility.
