  • Programme overview: 

    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”.

    CPM Education is a registered school with the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance).

    On successful completion you will be qualified to sit the PMA Third Party Certification.
