The Body Organics Education Mat & Reformer Certification is taught using several different learning modalities, improving your retention of information and makes you more confident as a teacher. All of the learning material for the anatomy, teaching methodology and repertoire is first introduced through online video lessons and then reinforced and expanded on in the face to face workshops. We allow you to layer your knowledge and understanding of concepts, giving you quality resources and support to review and progress your understanding over time. Self mastery and supervised teaching then consolidates the learning. You will also have specialised webinars with different teachers from around the country giving you in depth knowledge in a variety of subjects.
No Prior Learning Required
Most Pilates certifications require you to pay an additional fee for anatomy and physiology courses before starting the course. At Body Organics Education, this is included in your certification. The anatomy is first taught through our online learning courses and then reinforced and integrated into the repertoire and programming during the face to face modules. It is taught in blocks giving you ample time to digest the material before moving on and building on your acquired knowledge.
This Pilates Mat & Reformer Certification is taught online and in person with the content divided into three blocks of learning. We have worked to create layers of understanding and knowledge so that you can refer back to your online material throughout your course and use your face to face training to practice what you’ve learnt and really focus on your skills as a teacher. This will allow you insights into movement, repertoire and pathology without being overwhelmed by too much information in one go. You will first receive access to each block’s online course material to go through before the face to face workshops and tutorials which will build on the knowledge acquired through the online learning.

In this block you will go through the foundations of movement anatomy as well as teaching basics. There is a strong focus on the principles of human movement and how this relates to the Pilates repertoire. Specifically, you will here learn the repertoire for the matwork and learn to recognise those principles in the exercises you are being taught.
