Advanced Pilates Mat Work Course

Course Overview


You have achieved some fluency in your Pilates Beginner and Intermediate repertoire. Now you are ready to explore the advanced Pilates exercises. This course will address the remaining 10 original archival Joseph Pilates exercises, which require a higher level of awareness, greater flexibility, coordination, beautiful control and fluidity of movement. In this course, you will be also stimulated with contemporary innovative exercises, which guarantee to spice up any workout and elevate the heart rate of your intermediate client.  

Advanced Pilates exercises are meant to be practiced in the context of a variety of exercises at different levels that work together to create a balanced, dynamic workout. Your set of teaching skills must advance too. Learn how to accurately judge when and if your client is ready to progress. 

Enhance your teaching skills, stimulate your creativity, build and retain your client base.
