created by a Clinician for Clinicians

When I trained in Pilates, I did it with a high-profile Pilates training organisation led by a ‘guru’ physiotherapist. We spent hours learning how to assess patients, identify issues, and match the same few Pilates exercises to a few specific problems.

What we didn’t learn was:
  • How to run a Pilates class, or
  • A diverse range of exercises to keep classes interesting and meet the many different needs of clients, or
  • How to really challenge advanced clients, or
  • How to run Pilates classes for general fitness and injury prevention (not just rehabilitation).

So here's why we have designed the Course the way we have and why I think learning from a non-clinician makes complete sense.

Clinicians already know how to assess clients, and how to diagnose problems, and contributing factors. But they’re generally not expert exercise instructors and usually have a limited repertoire of exercises. This is why it makes sense to learn from Alicia whose have made a career out of instructing—she's lived and breathed it, day in and day out.

Absolutely, we want to help clinicians translate their knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, and musculoskeletal complaints into a Pilates/Barre context. But more than that, we want to give you enough Pilates/Barre tools to unleash the clinical skills you already have, with the client groups you already care about.

Or, to just give you the skills to take a breather from the grind of clinical work, and run some classes for general health, injury prevention.

our clinician stream features

40 hours dedicated to intelligent, analytical, and personalised instructing, so you’re ready and confident to immediately start teaching after Certification.
An Exercise Guidebook containing over 200 exercises providing a diverse repertoire to meet you client's needs, keep them engaged, and help 
A face-to-face immersive where you will learn how to design balanced classes that transition seamlessly from set to set.
How to build classes that are challenging, and yet inclusive and adaptable for those client with various needs, abilities, and fitness levels.
A focus on class delivery so you feel confident you can stand up and deliver classes your clients will rave about.

How can thESE CourseS build your practise?

Whether you want to start group classes or simply wanting new exercise toolkits to use with individual patients, this course will give you the skills and knowledge. Becoming an Instructor will not only help build your practise, but it can make your practise more enjoyable and sustainable, by providing you new, fun and alternative ways to help your patients.

In addition, it can enable you to add new, high quality, services to the general public for general fitness and injury prevention, rather than only offering treatment-related services. This can have the added benefit of building a community of followers, who will use your clinical services when the need arises.
