Pilates Certification Course - Montville, New Jersey
@The Studio taught by Tara-Lyn Nunziata
Our program, the first of its kind, is excited to bring our comprehensive certification back to the Pine Brook area of Montville, NJ! We know that choosing your education partner is an important process and we think you should know who you are about to be in a career building relationship with. The course you are about to register for is comprehensive, spanning nine weekends together, we leave absolutely nothing out. We cover ethics, professionalism, pathologies, anatomy, alignment protocols, all of the exercises, safety, tactile cueing, common mistakes, regressions, progressions, modifications, beginner, intermediate, advanced, program development, client retention, interview protocol, studio protocol, equipment maintenance… it’s all there.
Our New Jersey host studio is equipped with classical Pilates equipment. Founding Faculty, Tara-Lyn will go over the differences between classical and contemporary and what to do about it if you find yourself in a studio with different equipment. Why does that matter? Because as a career development course, you want to be ready to be hired anywhere, in any Pilates studio.
We don’t pick sides (clearly!) except for yours - and we want you to be ready for anything.
Tara-Lyn, founding faculty for Pure Body Teacher Training is excited to bring PBTT back to her studio for the second year in a row. Tara-Lyn is a breath of fresh air and supports her students in creative and encouraging ways. Working with Tara-Lyn in itself is an enriching experience but learning Pilates from her, well, it’s something special. Not only does Tara-Lyn teach students, but she is also one of our go-tos for training future faculty.
COMPREHENSIVE COURSE | EARLY REGISTRATION $5899
PBTT is a very comprehensive teacher training program. As such, our students and graduates are prepared for nearly any situation that might arise in a Pilates studio. It takes about one year to complete a course. That said, often our students have full-time jobs or other time constraints, in which case they are welcome to take longer to finish their program. Many of our students are working as apprentice teachers while completing their hours.
Required: 600 hours of combined observation, student teaching and practice. Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 at a college level or equivalent before the practicum. We have a course that meets this requirement - see our registration page for information on The Lab | Anatomy or see our FAQ page for a way to do the anatomy requirement for free. You may begin your hours as soon as you register.
Comprehensive Course $6300 includes course audits for life*
After you register you’ll receive a welcome email explaining what the next steps are. Your manuals will be waiting for you when you arrive on the first day. Once a student with us, you are always a student with us. As such, audits of any module are included in your registration for life - any where, any time. We look forward to meeting you and going along this journey with you! Feel free to reach out to us at any time and be sure to enroll in our digital network right away! (details will be in that welcome email.)

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.
*Course Audits As a student in our program, you are entitled to audit any course you participate in for life. You may attend courses as refreshers, community builders or to be a demo body and get to move for a weekend — whatever your reason, you are a student with us for life without paying any more for any course you’ve already paid for.
