The Comprehensive Teacher Training Course (CTTC)

The Comprehensive Teacher Training Course (CTTC) course provides a thorough, comprehensive education in Pilates covering the full range of Pilates equipment:

Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Ped-a-pul, Ladder Barrel, Step Barrel and various other Auxiliary apparatus. It is a complete and intensive college-level program that provides a solid foundation for teaching as well as a thorough understanding of all facets of Pilates. The course also includes instruction on the BASI® “Block System™” (a comprehensive programming and teaching methodology) and on the science of human movement, anatomy and physiology.

  • Attendance of all modules
  • Examination process including written assignment
  • Teaching observation: up to 100 hours
  • Student teaching: up to 200 hours
  • Practice: over 200 hours

Cost: $3795.00 USD

A payment plan is available (3 installments totaling $3995). A $500.00 deposit is required to reserve your space; $50.00 is non-refundable.

Prerequisites:

  • Familiarity with the teachings of Joseph Pilates – It is highly recommended to have familiarity and experience in Pilates (both Mat Work and on the apparatus for the Comprehensive course) before embarking on this course of study.
  • Study in basic anatomy and physiology – Although it is recommended that this be a college level course, it is also acceptable if it is part of another area of study such as a massage therapy, physical therapy or some other similar program.
  • Experience in a related form of physical activity – Over the years it has become apparent that experience in other physical activities is extremely beneficial. This allows the student to relate and compare the work to past movement experience.
  • Teaching experience is recommended – Teaching is a learned skill, an art and a natural talent. Any past teaching experience, even in an unrelated area will contribute to the process of becoming a teacher of the Pilates method.

Mat Work Teacher Training Course

At BASI Pilates® we regard the Mat Work as the “crown jewel” of Pilates. It is the essence of the system, without which a great void would exist. The Mat Work Teacher Training Course (MWTTC) provides a thorough education in the Mat Work and it’s infinite applications. In addition to being the foundation on which all else is based, it is also the perfect springboard to the Comprehensive
