The Body Refinery now offers its own recognised Pilates Certification Courses, through The Body Refinery Education.
A career as a Pilates instructor can be fun and rewarding, with flexible working hours and a high level of job satisfaction. However, choosing the right Pilates certification courses can be a daunting decision, with many options currently available.
Pilates is a complex movement therapy, so it’s a good idea to select a course that covers anatomy, pathologies and contraindications to movement. This will help to ensure you are providing the best Pilates experience for your clients, with tailored exercises that are safe for them to do.
Some Pilates courses advertise that you can become a Pilates instructor in just a matter of days, with little effort. Unsurprisingly, shortcut approaches to becoming a Pilates instructor have their shortfalls in terms of your learning experience, understanding, qualification, and ability to safely teach clients of all ages and physical abilities.
Attaining recognised certification courses in Pilates instruction, which is valued by employers and clients alike, requires a thorough understanding of the Pilates method that only comes from undertaking thorough training and practice. It’s also highly beneficial to select a course that is recognised by Australian professional bodies such as the Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA) and Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA), and ideally one whose qualification is recognised internationally.
The Body Refinery Education’s Pilates Certification Courses meet all of the above criteria. We believe in the substance behind the name “Pilates” and we work with our students so that they are confident, capable, and safe in the way they teach Pilates. Our graduates are trained to work in a variety of settings and with clients of any age or level of fitness.
The Body Refinery Education, in partnership with its online training partner Body Organics Education, offers accredited Pilates teacher training courses. The certification courses will be undertaken in our spacious, modern, well-equipped New Farm studio, with support from our 3 talented educators: Susan Cottrell, Lexi Garland and Karel Dimitri.
