Students will participate in the first three modules of the full Course, 50 face-to-face workshop hours and 200 study hours. Students will be ready to teach Mat Pilates to individuals, small groups and in group class settings upon completion of their coursework, hours and practicum.
Required: 200 hours of combined observation, student teaching and practice. Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 at a college level or equivalent. We have a course that meets this requirement - see our registration page for information on The Lab | Anatomy. You may begin your hours as soon as you register.
