Course Dates and Availability

Matwork Courses (Extended) *

The Extended Course has 13 tuition days and is structured in two-day blocks over typically a three-month period. To gain certification, students must pass a written examination on anatomy and on the wider principles of fitness; be assessed teaching a class (the culmination of their Supervised Teaching period); and complete some self-study work, including two open essay questions on Pilates fundamentals. We have seen that the Supervised Teaching (teaching practice) period requires typically 50 hours' attendance, commencing after the tuition period - the actual length of the period will vary by student based on feedback and progress. The written examination may be taken on any of the specified examination dates once you have completed your tuition days.

Anatomy is taught during the course in relation to the exercise programme. We provide some basic anatomical information in the pre-course pack for students - this also includes some recommended books in case the student wishes to study more detail before the course. 

Successful students will receive a certification to teach matwork classes in the Body Control Pilates Method and are licensed, subject to agreement, to use the Body Control Pilates Trade Mark. They will also receive a 'Level 3 Pilates' certification, issued by Active IQ.
