Teacher Training Courses

We offer a full range of Pilates instructor training programs. Whether you are interested in teaching Mat classes, Reformer classes or Pilates personal training sessions on the Reformer, Trap Table, Chair, and Barrels, we have the resources you need to succeed.

The Balanced Body Pilates instructor training program at the EHS Pilates Institute is designed to create thoughtful, creative, and successful Pilates teachers. Our curriculum emphasizes the principles underlying each exercise. Our faculty members have a wide variety of Pilates backgrounds from classical to contemporary to fitness and bring their exceptional depth of experience to the training.

Our program is designed in modules so you can take your first course now and continue your training next week, next month, or next year. Each module is self-contained so you can take them as quickly or as slowly as your schedule and budget allow. In addition to our instructor certification program, we offer a number of additional modules as well as workshops. Three levels of certification are available: Mat, Reformer, and Comprehensive.
