Welcome and Thank you for your interest in our program. The Pilates Education Lab Teacher Training Program provides comprehensive studies of the Classical Pilates repertoire presented through a focus on movement skills, sound biomechanics, proper alignment, cueing and developing your “eye” as a teacher. We provide a supportive environment for our students to reach their full potential as dynamic instructors.
