Starting the exciting process of becoming a Pilates Instructor is the beginning of a career that will be long lasting and progressive.
Joseph Pilates had the opinion that it was his technique and as such he was the only person who could teach it. However, since his death the technique has grown in popularity and status. The historical training was an apprentice system whereby students of the technique - usually dancers, helped in studios where they attended class and over time learned the repertoire and started to teach. The modern approach to training has become more structured by necessity. With the growth in demand for Pilates classes, the fitness industry instigated the need for formalised training with an evidenced assessment process.
The Pilates Institute Method is both evidence and research based and will allow students registered on any of the programmes to learn the technique in addition to understanding and developing their own style and creativity to become a well rounded and confident Pilates' teacher.
The Pilates Institute faculty developed the first national accredited qualification for Pilates in collaboration with OCR (Oxford Cambridge RSA). In Hungary also Pilates institute was the first, and up to date only accredited Pilates Training programme both by the Health Care and the Government. This means that with the diploma you'll be able to teach Pilates anywhere on the world.
