Summary of Pilates teacher training program “WORLD PILATES®” method
The World Pilates® training program is based on the original principles of J.H. Pilates integrated with current medical-scientific concepts and principles.
In the Pilates teacher training course you will learn how to:
analysis of the Pilates exercises based on biomechanics and its practical application to understand the underlying anatomical reasoning (apply the Pilates principles to each exercise knowing both the biomechanical and anatomical elements necessary for its correct execution);
practice of performing exercises;
gear management.
Converting postural analysis into an individualized and efficient work program for each client and managing group lessons:
choice of exercises;
choice of lesson type (individual, group, circuit);
level advancement;
Develop the teaching ability of the World Pilates technique:
verbal and tactile communication (positions, tone of voice, rhythm of the lesson)
use of mental visualizations
setting of the lesson (lights, music, essences).
Pilates teacher training program structure
The courses are offered in modules divided by level:
INTRODUCTIVE: anatomy and general biomechanics, Pilates principles, history of technique,
types of customers 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
ADVANCED: advanced level matwork exercises, reformer, cadillac, big barrel, step barrel
Each level offers a repertoire of exercises both on the ground (matwork) and on all the great Pilates tools
(reformer, cadillac, chair, big barrel, step barrel)
In this way every Teacher World Pilates, already only after the completion of the introductory module +
base, may be able to manage a complete exercise program on all Pilates tools (a
basic level), which will be able to deepen later with the intermediate and advanced modules. This methodology
study thus allows the opening and activation of a World Pilates center in a short time
guaranteeing an excellent basic technical competence and a continuous didactic support (practice day) and producing
immediate job opportunities.
The course includes a theoretical part and a consistent practice both in learning the correct execution of the
Pilates exercises, both in learning to teach the same exercises to future clients
For this reason during the course each participant will experiment alternatively the role of teacher,
client and also observer.
At the end of each level a theoretical and practical examination on the course contents is foreseen.
