You’ll learn how to teach to any and all client levels, including how to work with pathologies of all kinds (osteoporosis, scoliosis, etc) so you’ll be prepared for any situation that could come up as a new teacher. Graduates from our program are sought-after and praised for their thorough understanding of the method and ability to skillfully teach effective and enjoyable group and private lessons.

We know that choosing your movement education partner is an important process (and a big investment!) and we think you should know who you are about to be in a career building relationship with. We’re a group of dedicated, passionate Pilates professionals who are drawn to this program for all the solutions it brings to our students and our industry. We are here because of how much we love the method and training the next generation of thoughtful, kind, competent pilates instructors is the best way to ensure this life-changing movement system continues to help more people live pain-free, healthy lives .

“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
