There is a strong practical element to the course delivery as grounding the work in a teacher's body is the most powerful route to understanding and teaching the Pilates Method. There is a large component of reading, writing and home study in addition to the required course delivery hours so self-motivation and passion for Pilates is a must!

Theoretical and practical sessions will be delivered over 10 intensive weekends (Saturday/ Sunday), 25+ weekday evenings (Wednesdays). The course is based at the Precision Pilates Studio Chiswick, London, W4 5LG. Throughout the training the student is supported by the Course Tutors, peers and the Pilates Foundation.


All components are compulsory. By the end of the course students must successfully:

Complete 50 hours observation and assisted teaching.
