2022 Teacher Certification

We are excited to open our inaugural year with a generous grant for qualified applicants.  Our mission is to allow black/ brown, indengious peoples, members of the LBGTQIA community, and plus sized bodies access to become Pilates Teaching in a completely inclusive learning environment.

Become a Pilates Instructor

Our program teaches you the skills to make teaching Pilates more than a part-time job or pastime hobby, but into a variable lucrative career within our studio or to starting our own practice.

“I believe more people that look like me should be teaching Pilates.  To that goal our program aims to reach BIPOC, LBGTQIA, and plus sized bodies to add their unique life experience to Pilates as full-time teachers.”

Being a Classical Pilates Instructor

Becoming a Classical Pilates Instructor was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my professional career.  It was also one of the hardest and most intense and challenging certification I ever earned.  Teaching Pilates and opening my own studio has been a rewarding experience. I’m excited to share what I have learned with the next generation of instructors.
