About Balanced Body Instructor Training

The Balanced Body® Pilates instructor training program is internationally renowned and designed to create thoughtful, creative and successful Pilates instructors. The curriculum emphasizes the principles underlying each exercise.  Faculty members have a wide variety of Pilates backgrounds from classical to contemporary to fitness and bring an exceptional breadth of experience to their training. Balanced Body manuals are considered to be some of the best in the industry and are a more in depth study of the Pilates movement principles.

*The program offers an assessment-based certificate of completion, not a “Pilates Certification,” based on the recommendations of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA).

Different program options: Mat, Reformer, Apparatus

Each module below requires the purchase of the corresponding manual and video ($80) with the exception of Apparatus II and III.

Please note that you can take mat, reformer, and/or comprehensive (mat, reformer, apparatus) but are NOT required to complete all three. Once the required hours are completed for the option of your choosing, you can submit a test out application to Balanced Body®. Test outs can be schedule at any Balanced Body® Facility or at a Pilates on Tour Conference. After you receive your certificate from Balanced Body, you can apply to take the PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) exam to become a PMA-CPT. Please contact us for any further clarification or questions!

“My biggest piece of advice to my students is to really focus on the principles and the basics. If you understand why you’re choosing to do an exercise and why a certain client needs an exercise, then you’re going to become a very talented teacher.”

– Susan Clark

“I think when people are hesitant about signing up for a teacher training it’s usually because they’re not sure they have the voice for the confidence to to be an instructor. It’s my job to help empower them and make sure that they can understand their body and understand what the exercises are so that they can go forward as an instructor and feel empowered.”

– Jessica Wade
