Pilates Teacher Training
Pilates is considered to be one of the most efficient corrective exercise and intrinsic muscle training programs in Exercise Science.
The PSC Program is based off the original works of Joseph H. Pilates honoring the history of the classical method while incorporating contemporary principals and skills. It presents progressive movements which amend exercises to address the current functional needs of today’s students. This school prepares you to start your practice and finishes with a Certificate of Completion. A PSC education is a preparatory school and Continuing Education Provider for the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA).
Pilates Sports Center (PSC) Teacher Training Program is a comprehensive 450+ hour program offered in a modular or comprehensive format. A detailed photographic manual of each module is provided along with access to the PSC teacher training video library.
