Classical Pilates Teacher Training Programme



At the Precision Pilates Academy we offer a fully Comprehensive and Authentic Classical Pilates Teacher Training programme which runs over the course of a year. 

You will receive fom the course extensive tutor support, excellent resources, many opportunities to practice, and with small training numbers, flexible learning options.

You will learn Authentic Classical Pilates by following the Classical Method and seeking to remain as close as possible to the work of Joseph Pilates and the teachers to whom he passed his Method. In learning and embodying the Classical Method, you will be able to fully undestand and interpret the whole Pilates system.


During the training weekends you will find a friendly and encouraging environment in which to learn. In addition you will receive further support between the weekend sessions so you will not feel lost or left behind.
