Structure of the program of training courses for Pilates instructor, method World Pilates ®

The courses are offered in modules divided into levels:

INTRODUCTION: general anatomy and biomechanics, Pilates principles, history of J.H. Pilates technique, customer typology and main benefits.
BASE: basic level exercises of matwork, reformer, cadillac, big barrel, step barrel, chair.
INTERMEDIATE: intermediate level exercises of matwork, reformer, cadillac, big barrel, step barrel, chair.
ADVANCED: advanced level exercises of matwork, reformer, cadillac, big barrel, step barrel, chair.

Each level offers a wide repertoire of exercises both on the ground (matwork) and all the great Pilates apparatus (reformer, cadillac, chair, barrel, step barrel)

This way, each World Pilates instructor, just after the completion of the introductory + base modules, will be able to manage a complete exercise program of all Pilates equipment (base level), which can then deepen with intermediate and advanced modules. This program methodology, therefore, allows the launch and activation of a World Pilates® center quickly providing good basic technical competence and a continuous support (practice day), producing immediate job opportunities.

The course includes a theoretical part and a practical one, developed both to learn the proper execution of Pilates exercises, and to learn the right teaching technique to use with future clients.

For this reason, during the course, each participant will experience alternately the role of instructor, client and also observer.

At the end of each level there is a theoretical and a practical examination on the contents of the course.
