This Peak Pilates PPC1 teacher training course is for anyone wishing to train to become a Pilates Instructor, no previous teaching experience is needed. Or for an existing Pilates or fitness Instructor wishing to train in Classical Pilates or to add equipment. At the end of PPC1 you will be qualified to teach Pilates mat, reformer, Cadillac, barrel, chair and small equipment.

The course is taught over four modules and supported by a detailed manual and DVD. Each module builds upon the knowledge and skills learned in the prior module and culminates in a Level I Peak Pilates Certification.

Our courses are deliberately small with a maximum of 10 people. We have a ration of 2:1 on the Reformers so everyone gets plenty of hands-on time as either the teacher or the student.

There is a strong emphasis on coaching and mentoring to ensure all of our students develop and grow as teachers. You will be given detailed feedback at the end of every module with specific tasks and exercises to do to move you forward.
