  • 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.
