Pilates Level 1 - Essential Equipment and Kinesiology

backbend

Our instructor training program begins with our two Level 1 courses:  the Equipment & Kinesiology Module, and the Matwork Module.  Completing Level 1 prepares the student to sit for the Pilates Method Alliance’s National Pilates Instructor Certification Examination.
Pacific Movement Center’s Instructor Training includes instruction in biomechanics, the Pilates principles, exercise physiology, choreography on the Reformer, Trapeze Table (”Cadillac”) and various small tools, how to be an inspiring and effective teacher, and pedagogy.  You will learn how to position the client, safely modify the exercises if necessary, progressively challenge the client and elicit the desired movement.
In order to receive PMC’s diploma, the student is expected to understand all the information in the course.

Apprenticeship
A 100-hour apprenticeship must be fulfilled and the student must complete all written and practical exams to the satisfaction of the master trainers in order to receive the PMC diploma of graduation.


Pre-requisite There is a pre-requisite of 20 hours of experience in the Pilates method.  This can be fulfilled by attending mat classes, equipment classes or private sessions taught by a certified instructor.  This requirement is in place in order to ensure we can concentrate on the issues of how to teach Pilates, and not primarily on executing the exercises.

We also
recommend but do not require a college-level anatomy course in order to familiarize yourself with the language and structure.
