pure body studio :Real Pilates
Our teacher training program was born organically from the request of Pure Body Studio teachers. Our teacher training program matches our studio values of high integrity, scientific movement principles and dedication to authentic Pilates with outcomes described and articulated by Joseph Pilates.
Real :teacher training
We teach a comprehensive program spanning 450 hours which include lecture, movement practice and exploration, student teaching, practice teaching, observation and testing. Each student is required to pass a practicum at the end of their study in order to receive a certificate of completion. All of our students are then qualified to take the PMA CPT exam.
