To become a Pilates instructor through the Pilates Academy International, over 200 hours of in-studio training are required with additional hours of practice and observation necessary as well. During your Pilates teacher training, you can take Pilates mat classes and equipment classes at a discount and observe any class or session at any time. In fact, observation is an integral part of the program as long as it done quietly and unobtrusively! Practice means your own practice AND practicing on another person. We allow each student to bring in one friend as a practice body, and that person must register with the front desk and complete the usual paperwork. This allows students the chance to see how regular people as opposed to fellow students respond to their cues, corrections and feedback.
Put your career in the hands of the Pilates Academy International to become a Pilates instructor with all the knowledge and skills necessary to rise to the top of your industry.
