Not sure if teacher training is for you? These are the most common questions we get asked:
Will I be certified to teach when I'm done?
Yes! You will be certified to teach nationwide if you complete the training, your hours, and your test out.
How long is the training?
That is entirely up to you. We will meet in person for all trainings. It is your responsibility to take classes, practice, and study in between meetings. You will have 6 months to complete your hours and testing. If you need more time, no problem! As long as you communicate with your instructor and are teaching a community class you will have up to a year to finish your hours. You can complete your training at your pace depending on your schedule.
Are the dates flexible?
The dates we meet in person are not flexible. In order for everyone to properly plan around their schedules we do not move these dates around.
Why should I choose Pilates + Yoga?
ALL of our instructors are certified and insured. We want you to complete your training. We give you full access to the studio during business hours. If you need assistance to complete your hours we will even put you on the schedule. This experience will shape you so that you are well rounded and ready to teach by the time you graduate. This is all included with your training and is not an additional cost. Additionally, you’ll get a 6 month unlimited membership to take classes so you have the studio time you need to succeed.
What is the PMA?
The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) is the preeminent professional association for the Pilates field. Our training is led and directed by PMA certified instructors, meaning you can take the PMA as well. Many programs are not led by a PMA instructor. This may not matter to you at the moment, however, one day it will if you want to be a teacher trainer or make Pilates a full time career. You want to have the option to take this exam.
What happens if I miss a session?
If you must miss a day, reach out to your trainer ASAP. You may be able to get notes from a classmate. If it’s a lot of curriculum you have missed you can pay the hourly 1×1 training rate to go over the material with your trainer. This, usually, is very efficient since there are no other students and means you can condense the time you missed while you work one on one with the instructor.
