Pilates DNA

Comprehensive Teacher Certification Program

The Pilates DNA teacher certification program was born out of the need for more robust education options. We are not a teacher-training mill pumping out subpar graduates left-and-right. We are dedicated to preserving the integrity of the Pilates method and our selection process is as challenging as the program itself. That said, our apprentices move on to effectively teach Pilates as a system — the way it was intended.  

 

Our program highlights the importance of hands-on training and experiential learning. 

 

Wherever your journey into teaching Pilates takes you, a strong foundation in the traditional work is key to a well-rounded, well-informed future as a movement professional. A lifetime of learning, discovery and empowerment—for yourself and your future clients—awaits you and we are here to guide you on the right path.

Admission

Admission into the Pilates DNA teacher training program is selective. Apprentices are evaluated on their current understanding of the Pilates method and their ability to commit to an appropriate training schedule.

 

The first step is to submit an application. You will also need to complete an evaluation, which consists of executing exercises on this list, completed within 55 minutes, followed by a 5 – 30 minute interview. Cost is $145. Contact the studio for assistance navigating the application process.
