Centred Pilates Studio...
follows the Pilates Process™ method and offers their instructor training for Mat and Reformer as well as workshops for Cadillac, Chair and Teaching Therapeutic Pilates.
Pilates Process™ training teaches instructors how to program for individual clients and for group settings. Pilates focused anatomy, exercises and variations, along with practice teaching sessions make our education stand out.
When training instructors, they become our clients and are given the same focus and attention that our Pilates clients receive.
Some methods are focused on the perfect execution of exercises and not on the individual performing the exercises.
Our instructors are trained to recognize where the client is starting from and program for them to develop more efficiency, greater stability, balanced power and improved posture. Our instructors have a passion for what they do and their clients love their workouts.

Key features of the Pilates Process™ training:
Small Class Sizes
We are detail oriented and limit class sizes to 12 students so that everyone gets the assistance they need. In fact, we add an assistant when the class is more than 8 students.
Commitment To Students
We really want you to understand the material, not just memorize it and we have developed creative, diverse methods of teaching to ensure just that.
We have extremely high standards for teacher trainers. All of our teachers have extensive experience and are passionate about Pilates, their teaching and their students.
Understandably, not every fitness teacher wants to teach therapeutically. It is a reality however, that every teacher will come across clients with pain and injury whether they plan to or not. Our training is infused with our therapeutic knowledge so that you will feel prepared and confident when those situations arise. Furthermore, if you do want to pursue therapeutic teaching you will be very well prepared to do so.
