Pilates Teacher Training by the Arizona Pilates Academy

This 25 hour Pilates Teacher Training DVD course along with apparatus manuals is designed to give already certified personal trainers and registered yoga teachers a cost effective way of adding some Pilates movement to their arsenal of training modalities. The DVD lectures are meant to be viewed three times: the first time to gain knowledge, the second viewing to observe teaching/cuing skills of the instructor and the third viewing to practice along. This DVD package is divided into two parts. The first part (DVDs 1, 2, and 3) is designed to give instructors the tools necessary to start teaching Pilates to clients with/without small tools (e.g., Magic Circle, band, ball, arc and foam roller). The second part (DVDs 4, 5 & 6) is for those instructors who have access to the larger Pilates apparatus and would like a visual tool and written manual to begin exploring some exercises with their clients using the larger apparatus. As a bonus, there is also an example of relaxation techniques to use with clients. The whole package is designed to demystify teaching Pilates by understanding Pilates as simply a wonderful form of mind/body fitness with unique equipment. It is not designed to be a comprehensive course, but rather a cost effective way to introduce Pilates ideas, exercises and equipment to the fitness professional for use in their fitness/yoga training arsenal.
