This fully comprehensive programme is the first Pilates Teacher Training to incorporate the teaching and unique application of the neuromyofascial system, experienced and recognised through the Pilates Method training. The Pilates Methodology is studied and learnt through a neuromyofascial lens, utilising the Anatomy Trains map. It is a fully comprehensive training, covering the complete and original Pilates Studio repertoire.
This multi-level, multi-dimensional programme is an in-depth study of the nature of the body. It teaches the original, now somewhat historical, teachings of Joseph and Clara Pilates and others dedicated to their work.
Recognising Joseph Pilates’ seminal work with universal movement principals and the anatomy of fascia, this training teaches you to teach others to “return to life”.

Joyce was first introduced to Pilates at Houston Ballet where she danced professionally for 10 years, retiring in 1995. Pilates helped her rehabilitate from serious injury, allowing her to successfully return to the stage and extend her career. She began her study of the Pilates method in 1998, and has continued to deepen her understanding through workshops with first generation teachers, Pilates Method Alliance Certification (Gold Standard, 2003), as well as the Pilates Center of Boulder's Masters Program (2009). In constant search for more depth and greater possibility, Joyce is also a Yamuna Body Rolling practitioner with special focus on the foot and face, a Rossiter Coach, and an Anatomy Trains Associate Teacher.
In 2013, she serendipitously crossed paths with Karin Locher as they were both assisting an Anatomy Trains workshop. She found Karin's true embodiment of the myofascial meridians in their wholeness so mesmerizing that she invited her to introduce this work in the Houston area.
Over the course of the following two years, Joyce successfully completed Spatial Medicine's first Bridge to CPM held in the United States, and has continued on to join the international Faculty Team of Centre for Spatial Medicine. She shares her love of this work both at Pilates Treehouse, a fascial playground, and at Houston Ballet, using the inner spatial relationships of the body to heal and empower.
