There are so many unique elements to the Cadillac. It has leg springs, arm springs, fuzzy straps to hang from, a push through bar, and even a trapeze bar!

One of the most comprehensive and enjoyable courses that I have attended.
As a remedial massage therapist having never instructed a class, I have found the Matwork Course incredibly inspirational, informative, and an asset to my business.
Anna Hill – Massage Therapist
The course was excellent - the instruction was very clear, concise and thorough and the facilities were good. Enjoyable and fun yet learned so much at the same time. I would certainly recommend this course to other PTs as an essential course to do not only to learn to teach Pilates but also about body, injuries and core stability.
Cheryl Turner – Fitness Trainer
Amazing! You will learn so much, gain confidence, get constructive criticism AND support at the same time. Wonderful people and fantastic instructors. I recommend it to ANYONE!! I will continue to complete more courses
This course is amazing. A very intelligent concept that honours Joseph Pilates' foresight and a revolutionary way of exercising.
I found this course so informative, practical and functional. I had done a Pilates course previously with another physiotherapy specific Pilates company, and feel like this course was much more comprehensive. It taught more exercises and went into more detail about each exercise. It contained more information about specific injuries and exercise prescription for injuries, and it also taught me how to actually instruct and teach the exercises.
Jeannie Kim – Physiotherapist
Studio Pilates is not just another CEC course, it's a career! The course sets you up for all types of injuries and not only gives you exercises but credibility and knowledge. Love, love, loved this course!
The Matwork Course has helped me in my work as a personal trainer and given me instant skills to use with clients 1:1 and in a group situation.
Julie Anderson – Personal Trainer
Studio Pilates has changed my life and the life of my Personal Training career.
Gerri Quirke – Personal Trainer
Studio Pilates really delivered on the Matwork Course, our instructor was exceptional, the process of booking in through to course end and assessment was thorough, professional and exactly what was outlined at the beginning. You will certainly come away feeling empowered and ready to teach.
The course facilitators made this course for me: their passion and enthusiasm is remarkable!
The course gives you the confidence and skills to step straight out into delivering high quality Pilates classes.
Kelsie Hewitt – Musculoskeletal Therapist
The Matwork course was everything it was set out to be - a hands on, practical course that had me feeling like a professional instructor from day one. I thoroughly enjoyed the content and people I met throughout the weekend. I was highly recommend this course for anyone who is wanting to either improve their own technique or instruct classes.
The training from Studio Pilates is superb; this is a thorough, integrated and well-supported course. I feel confident in my ability to lead a class now; the combination of reading, videos and face-to-face practice make for a really well-rounded learning experience. You will love it!
Fantastic company to deal with. They offer great support and learning materials.
I cant think of anything I would fault with the course - this is the best and most thorough course I have ever done.
Lee C – Personal Trainer
I would highly recommend this Pilates course. As a physio I found this course very informative. It placed high emphasise on the set up, programming, injuries and detailed analyse on technique required to perform the Pilates exercises.
Lindsay O – Physiotherapist
The course was fantastic and the content was well delivered, I have learned a lot from the experience. The course has given me confidence in my ability and knowledge to instruct Pilates classes and I can't wait to get started!
I had already qualified as a Pilates Instructor through another training course and have done quite a few work shops over the years, but felt I needed to do a refresher. I am so glad I found Studio Pilates, the course was so much more professional, just love the on-line training videos. Staff very supportive and helpful. I have learned so much more and am already lined up for more training.
The Matwork Course gave me the skills and confidence to be able to walk away from it ready to teach and keen to learn more!
I thought I knew everything about core stability, only to find out there is so much more to learn! The course has helped me greatly in taking clients who have injuries and also in adding more variety to my sessions I loved it and found it so worth while.
Mel Thompson – Personal Trainer
As an already qualified Matwork Pilates instructor, I was so impressed and delighted with all of the extra additional information I received on the Studio Pilates Matwork Course. The information and detail by far surpassed what I had already learned and has made me a far better instructor.
Mickie Du Boulay
It is no exaggeration to say this course experience was transformative–both professionally and personally. This course will long remain a high point of my life.
Nasrin Al-Khani – Personal Trainer
This was the best course that I have done. It was presented well and it was very engaging. Loved this course.
One of the best courses I have been on. Our instructor passed on all her knowledge and passions. A positive and encouraging environment.
This is actually the best course I've ever completed.
This course has given me more confidence and variety to teach my chiropractic patients the correct exercises according to their conditions.
