Become a Pilates Teacher



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 classical 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.


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

Barefoot Studio is just two hours from London by train and 15 minutes from Cardiff airport. With plenty of local accommodation we are the perfect venue for UK based and overseas students.
