Karen Ingram Academy is the UK Education Centre for Peak Pilates®. The Peak Pilates education programme is taught throughout the world and is renowned for combining a deep knowledge of the Pilates method with teaching skills training. Peak Pilates delivers a quality classical comprehensive education programme that is modular and takes you from being new to teaching to an advanced level.
In partnership with YMCA Awards we have combined the Peak Pilates Comprehensive level 1 certification with the Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Pilates. For those that want a fitness industry endorsed qualification this is a unique opportunity to gain a classical education across all equipment and gain REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) and CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) endorsement.
You can still choose the Peak Pilates PPC1 course as a stand alone qualification or opt for the YMCA Awards Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Pilates course.
We specialise in small courses. All our courses are for no more than 8 people, ensuring a minimum ratio of 1:2 on all equipment and plenty of individual coaching and mentoring.
Our focus is not just on what to teach but how to teach. Our Pilates Instructor courses will teach you how to cue effectively, apply touch techniques, how to progress clients and modify exercises for people with injuries. Also how to plan great classes and sessions.
"Karen is an excellent teacher! Perceptive, focused and encouraging! Gives 100% and expects you to as well." Dr. Catherine Davies, PPC1 Instructor
