Comprehensive Level I Course Objectives:
Course Prerequisites: It is recommended, but not required, that the participant enters with an understanding of basic anatomy gained through previous anatomy coursework or certifications in fitness and movement. Additionally, we recommend that the instructor take a minimum of 10 classical Pilates lessons or classes.
Registering: We highly recommend registering for each module a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the scheduled date. There is a considerable amount of required homework that will not be repeated during the live session workshops. These assignments are required to be completed in order to be eligible for assessment in Module 4.

Module 1 dives into the history and benefits of Pilates, develops the foundation of working with Key Concepts and Fundamentals, starts building the Pilates vocabulary, and introduces teaching with the 5-Part Formula for Success. This formula teaches the instructor HOW not just WHAT to teach. The exercises for Mat are also learned and the instructor is prepared to begin practice teaching for Group Mat classes.
