Pilates Level 2: Reformer builds on the concepts learned in Pilates Level 1: Mat. Postural and functional assessments serve as the backdrop to more than 150 exercises and modifications. We focus on exercises performed on the Pilates Reformer apparatus, progressing through beginner, intermediate, and advanced repertoire. Upon completion, you will have the confidence and expertise to build bodies with balanced strength and flexibility, improve movement and function, manage injuries, and how to fine-tune athletic performance. You also develop skills to teach functional and challenging Reformer group classes and one-on-one sessions.
Pilates Mat (Level 1) provides you with the tools to design mat classes for people of all ages and abilities. You learn the complete Mat Work Repertoire. Our unique certification program emphasizes core stabilization systems, movement mechanics, and versatile class design principles.
If you have already completed a recognized minimum 6-hour anatomy program within the last 5 years, the Anatomy in Motion course is not required. The Anatomy in Motion course literally changes the way you think about, observe, and feel human movement. Fun and interactive, the human structure comes alive, and you gain new insights into how the body moves from different perspectives. The ultimate goal of this course is to help you understand how movement is produced at all major joints, which lays the groundwork for accurate neuromuscular recruitment, joint mobility, and core control.
