Want to become a Pilates Instructor?

Pilates is a mind-body approach to physical fitness which focuses on posture, body awareness, controlled movement, and core strengthening to achieve whole body fitness. At Soulful Pilates, our fun and intimate studio setting provides the foundation for the course. Soulful Pilates has an open studio policy for all participants in our Teacher Training program.

While mastering Pilates movements and techniques, our student teachers learn how to address the many imbalances and injuries that people face in day-to-day life. Graduates of our training program develop a complete understanding of the body's muscles and skeletal structure. As well as gaining insight to help clients suffering from many types of injury, while safely exercising and challenging all individuals.

Soulful Pilates has built a family of comprehensively-trained instructors. Each Pilates trainer brings their individual background, personality, and experience with Pilates into their individual teaching style. We encourage individuality and creativity while teaching you how to safely apply the Pilates fundamentals and techniques.
