Our programme is designed to develop your skills to be a teacher, coach and guide, ensuring you become an elite professional and stand out in the field of pilates and the new wellness industry.
The Pilates Method lies in its approach, philosophy and principles. Ideas laid down by Joseph Pilates, carried forward by Romana Kryzanowska. You are connecting at the source, at the origin of The Method, becoming a 3rd generation teacher of the Method.
Our three-level (Intro, Progression & Progression +) approach is taught over four modules. The Pi Pilates Comprehensive Programme will teach you how to level up your clients through the integration of the exercises and the correct use of the apparatus. We take care to ensure that you understand the pilates method to be a 360-degree approach, not just a linear one. It is the integration of the exercises and the apparatus that allows the beauty and strength of The Method to shine. As Eve Gentry (pilates Elder) said ‘you can know all the exercises in The Method and still not know how to teach The Method’.
Apparatus covered: Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Ladder Barrel, Small Barrel, Spine Corrector, Pedipole and Magic Circle.
We will introduce to simple anatomy, develop your skills as a teacher and uniquely our programme will teach you how to multi level teach. This is a high level skill is necessary to ensure you maximise your studio potential without compromise to teaching quality.
Our entire programme is dynamic and experiential in approach of 600 hours in total, creating an unforgettable, transformative learning experience. From the first hour of the first weekend you will be teaching. The apprenticeship is an extension of this powerful way to learn. The 600 hours apprenticeship consists of seminars, guided online content, self-practice, observation, practice teaching, meetings, and a mandatory training package of 60 classes and sessions completed with Jeroen and his skilled teaching team. Science tells us we learn by doing (embodiment) not by just observing or listening.
All students will need a time commitment of approximately 15 to 20 hours per week to complete in the nine months.
We expect a high degree of practice before acceptance onto the training. We suggest a minimum number of 30 private/group sessions or be able to take yourself through a progression/intermediate reformer workout on your own. You should know the transitions, names of exercises, springs and order for the reformer repertoire to a progression/intermediate level. Jeroen and his team will be able to guide your to the correct level.
You may need to attend a review of your workout in person or send in a video prior to acceptance. We are not looking at how well you execute the exercises, but rather have you enough discipline to be able to develop the work both physically and mentally.
