There are two courses which you will complete to become a Pilates instructor –
The Anatomy Course provides you with the prerequisite knowledge to move into your Matwork Certification. In the Anatomy Course, you learn all about the bones, joints and muscles of the body which is so important for your understanding of exercise biomechanics, injury rehabilitation and to obtain insurance as an instructor after you graduate. This course must be completed prior to the Matwork Course if you do not currently hold a Certificate III or IV in Fitness or a Bachelors Degree in an Allied Health field.
The Matwork Course is Studio Pilates’ foundation course which certifies you as a Pilates instructor. In this course, you learn over 70 beginner to intermediate Matwork exercises as well as learning about posture, core stability, Pilates for pregnancy, spinal problems, muscle imbalances and muscle recruitment and activation.
After completing and passing the Matwork Course, you are a fully certified Matwork instructor. You are then able to start instructing or alternatively, you can enrol in further courses to specialise on the Pilates equipment and take your skills to the next level.
