PILATES TEACHER TRAINING
COREdination Pilates is proud to be affiliated with two 450-hour comprehensive Pilates instructor certification programs.
Amanda, studio owner, is one of only eleven mentors, throughout the United States and Canada, for Pilates Core Integration (PCI), a Pilates instructor certification program. The Pilates Core Integration Teacher Training Program, designed by Virginia Nicholas, teaches the traditional Pilates Method using the same approach taught by Eve Gentry and Michele Larsson.
Pilates Core Integration (PCI) certification will give students the knowledge and experience to teach Pilates for fitness and body-mind integration. The training program encompasses classical Pilates exercises on the mat and five main pieces of equipment, anatomy related to movement, Pilates history, practice teaching, reading assignments and homework. The exercises range from fundamental movements to the advanced level. In the apprenticeship component, students obtain required hours of personal practice, observation/assist and student teaching.
