Mix the relaxation of California sunshine with your first step on the Pilates teacher pathway. All whilst being guided, supported and coached by a certified Master Teacher.

Basic Pilates Mat Teaching Certification.
Is Pilates Teacher Training for me?
The certification doesn’t mean you have to go forward and become a teacher. Of course it can, but is also a fantastic way to learn more about the method and to take your practice into new realms.
Its also a great certification for trainers or fitness professionals looking to teach mat classes, or for anyone considering becoming a comprehensive Pilates teacher, to experience teaching and to get a feel for the classical method.
The certification can be used towards the full Peak Pilates Comprehensive Course and is accepted by many schools as a credit towards their programs too.
Why Peak Pilates
Jamie has chosen the Peak Pilates course because of its international creditability.
The Peak Pilates Mat Certification Program provides a solid foundation in the Classical Mat exercises, while delivering the tools necessary to progress individual clients and group classes safely and effectively in a health club or studio setting.
Peak Pilates is also a classical training school. This means that the Pilates that you will be learning and going on to teach, is authentic Pilates, as Joseph Pilates intended. The real thing.
There will be 2 days assigned to the training course, but will also have the opportunity to log your observation, practice and teaching hours, during the last days of the retreat.
For me, teaching is where we really truly start to learn, understand and develop a deeper relationship with the incredible method. My own personal practice changed dramatically the day I started studying to become a teacher.
The reason I have chosen Peak Pilates as our first Mat Course, is because it is a name that is respected within the industry. Everyone knows and values the Peak approach and it has a reputation for producing great teachers, across the globe.
Peak Pilates is also run by some incredible and inspirational people and their consistent programs and attention to detail, create an international community of teachers to support you at every step of your Pilates journey.
