Peak Pilates® Comprehensive Certification Pathway
The Peak Pilates® Comprehensive Certification is a three-level modular program that is designed to deliver the highest quality authentic Pilates education.
It is the foundational level of Pilates professional education which covers the mat, reformer, tower, chairs, barrels and auxiliary equipment. The Comprehensive Certification is a classical Pilates education program distinguished by an emphasis on Pilates as an integrated movement system as Joseph Pilates intended. Our three-level modular pathway to the Peak Pilates® Comprehensive Certification allows you to progress at your own pace. An extensive Teacher Trainer Network also ensures support and opportunities for mentorships that empower students to become effective instructors and genuinely feel part of the Pilates community.
The Peak Pilates® Comprehensive Certification prepares you to instruct a range of individual clients and group classes
And teaches you how to modify exercises for special populations. The 500-hour Peak Pilates® Comprehensive Certification includes instruction in classical mat work and exercises performed on traditional Pilates apparatus. We use Peak Pilates® equipment, which preserves the integrity of the original apparatus designed by Joseph Pilates.
Each level is comprised of specific modules, generally scheduled over a weekend from Friday evening through Sunday.
