“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young”
Our Aim and Our Purpose
We absolutely love Pilates and we are so passionate about it as a form of fitness and rehabilitation. Pilates has changed our lives, not only physically from practising it ourselves, but it has also given us a great deal of enjoyment, satisfaction and reward to be helping our clients to become fitter and injury free.
We also love helping our students to share in this excitement and enjoy the same benefits of a career in Pilates that we have experienced.
We care about each and every student who comes through our certification - if you choose to embark on a learning journey with us, know that our team are here to make sure that you not only become an amazing instructor, but also have fun and enjoy the learning process along the way. We will continue to support you afterwards with our ongoing training and job opportunities as well.
Whether you are embarking on a new career as a Pilates instructor or enhancing your existing industry knowledge, we know that you will love the Studio Pilates International® instructor training courses as much as we do!
“Our mission is to train world class Pilates instructors who are empowered with extensive knowledge, practical instructing skills, and the confidence to transform lives.”
Why Our Courses?
Practical And Hands On Course Work
The Studio Pilates® instructor courses are both practical and hands on. You will practice teaching the exercises extensively in both one on one and class settings. This practical training makes you a more confident instructor at the end of the day.
Physiotherapy Based Learning
Many Pilates instructor courses do not go through the specific rehabilitation exercises. Our courses cover injury management and rehabilitation in detail. Our courses have been created by physiotherapists and are physio based, but with the traditional Pilates exercises. As a result, you learn the modern science behind the traditional exercises. We also teach you how to challenge your clients. We have courses specifically tailored for both the clinical setting and the fitness industry so you can be sure your clients receive great results.
Studio Pilates® Cueing Formula
The hardest thing about becoming an instructor is not learning the exercises, but learning how to teach them. Our courses focus on ensuring you are confident to instruct each exercise – we focus on teaching you how to teach! We have developed our own cueing formula to help you to teach the exercises effectively and clearly.
Interactive Learning Environment
In your course, you will be able to ask as many questions as you like. The format is interactive, rather than a lecture. The course combines formal learning but it is delivered in an informal manner. Our courses have a great group format and dynamic – both the instructor trainers and course participants are there to help each other and learn.
Our courses are not just about the exercises, they also deal with the body – posture, core stability, correct activation of core muscles based on the latest research, pregnancy, sample programs that you can use, injury management and programming.
Earn Continuing Education Points
Many of the Studio Pilates courses are accredited with leading health and fitness associations such as Fitness Australia, ACE, NASM, AFAA, Physical Activity Australia and RepsNZ, which means that if you are a member of these bodies, you can earn continuing education points while you study!
Online Training Centre
With many of our courses, you receive access to our Online Training Centre. This contains videos on the entire course content – so you can learn it before you come along to the course. This means that when you attend the course, you can focus more on how to instruct well rather experiencing all the exercises for the first time. You can also use the online training centre for your ongoing study - maximising you learning before and after the course!
No Logging of Practical Instruction Hours
The Studio Pilates® courses do not require you to log any practical instruction hours. Everything you need to learn will be taught through the online training centre and during your course.
Our courses are modular, which means that you can just do the Matwork course if you like. You are not locked in to doing a package of courses. This means that you can teach the exercises that you have learnt straight away after you finish the course.
Stress Free Examination
The examination process is easy and not stressful
or scary. We ensure you have all the knowledge to complete your examination before you take it.
