Apparatus Instructor Training Program Level 2: Intermediate & Advanced

The Pilates Apparatus Instructor program is intended for existing Pilates mat instructors wishing to extend their skills to teach on the large studio apparatus.

Corpus Pilates Apparatus Level 1
Min 10 Apparatus classes at Intermediate level

The course is designed to learn to teach the exercises, not just about how to do the exercises.
That’s why the prerequisite apparatus classes are important, to ensure:

  • a minimum level of experience of the Pilates apparatus repertoire at an intermediate level, before learning to teach it.
  • your safety and the safety of others during the course

In-person practical sessions and online theory sessions (or entirely online if location prevents in-person participation)

If followed online:

  • 100% attendance is required for all sessions
  • You must be clearly visible to the Trainer throughout
  • You must have access to the large studio apparatus during all sessions (Reformer, Cadillac or Tower, Chair(s) – High Chair, Low chair/Wunda Chair, Ladder barrel, Small barrels and or Spine Corrector, Ped-o-Pole)

The course covers in detail the Pilates apparatus exercises for each level, and all the steps and protocols to safely instruct Pilates on the apparatus and become a successful coach.

This course incorporates two full syllabuses.
