First and foremost, Balanced Body acknowledges that many of the currently top-rated instructional teacher training programs have great value, merit and a level of quality that creates a thriving and diverse instructor population. Though we cannot speak to what other programs offer or do not offer, we can speak to what Balanced Body has to offer.
Balanced Body respects the traditions of Joseph H. Pilates’ original works while also incorporating the best of contemporary research from exercise science to leading full-body movement theories. Students not only learn the exercises but strategies on how to use the exercises to best meet a client’s individual needs.
Our manuals and teaching materials are some of the best in the world. The curriculum, created by Nora St. John, has been taught since 2006. With over a hundred thousand courses being taught and thousands of instructors accessing our trainings, it is safe to say our curriculum leads the industry in how it educates new Pilates instructors.
Finally, Balanced Body prides itself on providing you with the educational tools to help you teach and grow as a practitioner. We do not dictate “how” you should teach. We encourage each of you to find your voice, your rhythm and your style as practitioners. Our Balanced Body Educators are your guides and mentors and will help to empower you as you create your place within the Pilates community.
