Reading list Return to Life and Your Health by Joseph Pilates are required.  Titles written by Blandine Calais-Germain, especially Anatomy of Movement.  The Anatomy Trail Guide is a valuable anatomy text and can assist a beginner teacher in recognizing and recruiting particular muscles and muscle groups.  The Pilates Method Alliance study guide is helpful as you get closer to taking your PMA CPT exam.  

Anatomy   If students have not completed Anatomy and Physiology I & II at a college level or the equivalent, completion of this education is required.  We have our own Anatomy course that will fulfill this requirement.

Practicum  Each student takes a practical exam upon completing their modules, hours and anatomy requirements. Exams are three hours long, include two long form essays and two hours of teaching.

PMA CPT  Our program more than qualifies our graduates to take the Pilates Method Alliance exam should they choose to.
