Teacher Certification

Teacher Certification Through The New York Pilates Studio ® Teacher Certification Program

The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Certification process consists of two phases: academic study through the System Workshops and experiential training through the Apprenticeship Program. Any individual who meets the entry requirements may start the Program at any time.

Phase I: The System Workshops are designed to teach the philosophical, technical, and pedagogical aspects of The Authentic Pilates™ professional training program. Students are taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced-level movements for each apparatus. The movements are demanding, and you must be in good physical condition to participate. You must also be relatively active with decent flexibility and some sense of your body.

System Workshops: Offered in two different formats, applicants choose one of the following formats to apply for:

Monthly Workshops: Consists of three different courses, which are each three to five days long, covering the Beginner System, Intermediate System and Advanced System.
12 Day Intensive: A seminar completed in 12 consecutive days covering the Beginner through Advanced System material.

Phase II: The Apprentice Program. This program requires a total of 600 apprenticeship hours with an Authentic Pilates™ certified instructor at a Certification Center or Authentic Pilates™ Studio. The Apprenticeship is required for all formats.

Phase 1 (First 200 hrs): Observation & Practice
Phase 2 (Second 200 hrs): Assisting an Authentic Pilates™ Certified Instructor.
Phase 3 (Third 200 hrs): Teaching solo under the supervision of an Authentic Pilates™ Certified Instructor.

Exams are given at the completion of each phase. Progression through each phase develops your teaching skills and is completed according to your own schedule and that of the center. The apprenticeship must be finished in one year. Permission to extend an apprenticeship beyond one year can be given at the sole discretion of the U.S.P.A.®
