Pilates Certification Course - Denver, Colorado

@TerraFly, taught by Yael Trainer

Pre-requisites  Include a working knowledge of anatomy, a minimum of 75 personal Pilates practice hours, an understanding of Joseph Pilates and a passion to learn the full Pilates program.  

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

“Learning how to understand and recognize postural alignment in a body really helped me understand Pilates as a uniform system, as well as how to organize a flow and have intentional cueing. PBTT taught me that!”

— Happy Student Whitney S., obtaining her 2nd certification with PBTT
