Pilates Teacher Training

The Pad Studios is excited to once again offer our Pilates Teacher Training Program with Senior Instructors, Kathleen Carruthers and Becca Schneider. The Pad Studios Pilates Teacher Training Program is a comprehensive program for aspiring teachers who meet minimum requirements for enrollment. The program has an emphasis on holistic teaching and creating a well-rounded, innovative instructor who is ready to turn their love of Pilates into a successful career.

Hands-on learning is a key component to this program. Trainees will have the opportunity to work closely with Becca and Kathleen to not only learn the individual exercises but become dynamic, motivating and effective instructors. This supportive, positive environment allows for a deeper understanding of the Pilates method and provides a place to grow your own practice. It is one of the only programs of its kind to include a mentor relationship with a senior instructor, as well as the opportunity to continue into an apprentice program, teaching at The Pad. The comprehensive manuals, lectures and workshops will give you the tools you need to become an excellent teacher and create a thriving private business.
