Helping people feel their absolute best inside and out is at the heart of everything Soul Pilates does. We’ve steered away from the ‘beast yourself’ and 'aesthetics first' mentality, which is so prevalent in the fitness industry. Instead, we use movement on a much deeper, more insightful level to create transformative change in both classes and private sessions.
Having worked with qualified teachers from many different teacher training institutions in our studios, we've learned the common skills that are so often missed from many trainings.
IS THIS FOR ME?
This course is suitable for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of Pilates, their body and their wider energetic being across all the Pilates Equipment.
You may be a trained fitness instructor looking to add Pilates to your repertoire, or a Mat or Reformer trained Pilates instructor who wishes to learn how to use all of the Pilates equipment and the full Pilates repertoire in a 1:1 and class set up.
But you might also be someone who just loves Pilates and wants to learn more with no definite plans to make it your career (this is how Nic started - this was originally her 'Plan B' to her corporate career!).
If you are looking to work towards your certification, you will be required to undertake a minimum of 50 hours of apprentice teaching, plus 75 hours of self-mastery and observation, prior to taking your exam with us 6 months after your in-person training.
This is so you can take what you've learned in our training and bring it into your personal and teaching practice, ready to become a certified teacher who feels ready to teach real clients.
We believe the apprentice teaching element is one of the areas least supported in many courses, and yet one of the most important parts of getting ready to be a quality teacher. Being able to bring to life a class, deliver a bespoke 1:1 session and work with individual bodies is an art in itself.
Trainings will be held on selected Fridays & Saturdays 9am - 6pm at our City Centre Studio with regular breaks throughout the day. One Saturday will be held at our Bishopston Studio to gain group reformer experience and will be from 12pm - 7.30pm.
