Balanced Body

Pilates Teacher Training - Balanced BodyA Balanced Body Pilates education respects the works of Joseph H. Pilates, including in the curriculum the Pilates repertoire while emphasizing the movement principles underlying each exercise.

Balanced Body encourages their teachers to explore and be creative when finding their own voice and style as a practitioner, respects the past and innovates the future.

The Balanced Body Pilates Instructor Training program is designed to create thoughtful, creative and successful Pilates teachers.

Courses are taught in self-contained modular segments, so you can take them as quickly or as slowly as your schedule and budget allow.

 

Program Details

Mat — The most basic of our options, the Mat program requires a student to successfully complete both Mat I and Mat II modules. An anatomy pre-requisite, teaching, and observation hours are required to complete the program.

Reformer — This covers all Reformer work plus the mat work. For successful completion candidates will need to take the following modules: Mat I and Mat II; Reformer I, II, III, and an anatomy pre-requisite. Teaching and observation hours are also required to complete the program.

Comprehensive — This is an in-depth exploration of Pilates from mat to barrels and all that lies in between. The comprehensive modules include: Mat I and Mat II; Reformer I, II, III; Tower or Trap Table, Chair and Barrels, and an anatomy pre-requisite. Teaching and observation hours are also required to complete the program.

Bridge — If you have already completed a Pilates training program and are looking to bridge over to our Balanced Body program, we welcome you. Our bridging program requires a bridge application submission and the completion of at least three modules which will be determined based on your application.

Pilates Teacher Training - Balanced Body If you are interested in the Pilates Center of St. Louis' Pilates Teacher Training Program, you must meet the following requirements before registering for the weekend workshops:
1. Eligible teacher trainees must have at least 20 hours of Pilates experience. This can be any group, private, or at-home Pilates mat work. Trainees should feel comfortable with the names of the exercises and the basic concepts within them.

2. It is recommended that teacher trainees have some anatomy experience. This can be a college-level anatomy course, body work therapy certification, physical therapy certification, certification through AFAA or ASCM, or other. Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais-Germain is a great resource for this course.

3. It is highly recommended that teacher trainees have had some form of teaching experience and/or at least be comfortable leading groups.

4. Eligible teacher trainees must be able to question prior notions about movement, awareness, and Pilates knowledge. BBU and the Pilates Center of St. Louis have compiled the latest research and ideas and hopes to provide trainees with a well-rounded understanding of Pilates.

Please note that there are four levels of our program: Mat-Only (you plan to only teach mat), Mat and Reformer-Only (you plan to only teach mat and reformer), Comprehensive (you plan to teach mat, reformer, and apparatus), and last but not least Advancing Personal Pilates Education (you have no intention to teach the material, you just want to learn more). If you are planning to come through our Comprehensive program, your requirements are a bit higher, however, some of these can be completed as you go. Please refer to the BBU website for more information on requirements.
