The Pilates Method offers a Classical Pilates Teacher Training program. A comprehensive program, anatomy, apprenticeship, teacher training workshops and test out. We also offer a Bridge Program for current instructors, those who may have not finished a previous program or are looking to enhance their knowledge and deep dive into the Pilates Method of Contrology. Our studio is located in downtown Birmingham, Michigan and we have partnered with other Classical Pilates Studios in Michigan, making it possible to do apprenticeships at convenient locations throughout Michigan.

A rigorous program designed to immerse you in the authentic, time tested method of Joseph Pilates original work. You will learn the Pilates Method in a fully equipped studio, on ALL apparatus, using the original equipment made by Gratz Industries. Pilates is not just the reformer but a whole & complete system. Hands on studio experience ready you for a career in teaching Pilates and follow up learning while you are starting your career. In a positive learning environment. The value of this program is that you will be comprehensively trained and able to work at any Pilates studio. It is not exclusive to only classical Pilates.

The Pilates Method: Classical Pilates Bridge Program

Our bridge program is unique and designed for either instructors who are currently certified or those who may not have completed a full certification. Lifelong learners of Pilates want to know more about the classical work, it’s similarities to other certifications and history. It will take you to a deeper understanding of the work beyond “performing” an exercise or what is thought of as “choreography”. The intention is to set you apart, enhanced marketability and inclusivity bringing the Pilates community together while preserving the integrity of Joseph Pilates original work.
