This first level practical Teacher Training course is designed specifically for instructors with some fitness teaching experience and personal Pilates experience that wish to teach group Pilates Mat classes or incorporate Pilates movements into their existing classes or training sessions. This BCRPA approved and accredited course balances theories and practice that will enable the student to discover the history, philosophy and principles of the Pilates method. The student will learn the primary intention of each Pilates exercise, develop the skills to cue effectively while discovering the benefits and the genius of the Pilates Mat sequencing. Through practice the student will develop the skills to demonstrate each Pilates exercise and learn how to cue,
modify or progress each movement to conduct a safe and effective beginner to intermediate Pilates fitness class. Exercise science, training principles and anatomy is reviewed and related to the Pilates method. Registration also includes 3 zoom Pilates classes with Lela D Pilates.
