I designed the Pilates Complete Mat Course because I wanted to inspire instructors to be able to teach a diversity of individuals from kids to pregnant women, older clients and people with lower back pain. I wanted to teach a repertoire that embraces all levels of ability from beginners to advance. Pilates is so healing. After many years working as a Pilates teacher, my passion for Pilates is stronger than ever.
Part of this course covers programming for kids – why not be a kid again! Full of action – studying, moving, and role playing.
Learn traditional and contemporary moves, programming for back pain, older clients and pregnant clients and gain your full Pilates Complete Mat certificate.
Place no limits on what you can achieve. The only limits on this course is that the capacity is 10, and to respect and be compassionate to everyone in the course.
This course is the best place to begin your Pilates teacher training. Let me help you to gain the maximum benefit of the course and empower you to become the best Pilates teacher you can be. Remember to use your intuition throughout your daily life. Going with your gut feeling will enable you to go forward with confidence and perform at your highest level.
Once you have completed your 100 course hours, you will be able to gain insurance with AON for Pilates.
Recommended minimum of 2 hours per week for self-mastery, 2 hours assistant teaching and 2 hours observation as well as allocating time for homework tasks such as case studies and review questions such as movement analysis.
Self mastery: As part of the Pilates Complete Mat course, it is recommended that you complete regular private and/or trio studio sessions with Taube Pilates Studio during the course delivery period. This allows you to continue your personal kinaesthetic growth as well as allowing you to deepen your understanding of Pilates under the expert tuition of Louise Taube. Participants are encouraged to attend the one private and 4 trio sessions at Taube Pilates that are included for free as part of this course to further develop your practice.
Assessment: At every session you will be required to demonstrate your teaching while being observed and given feedback. This is part of your ongoing assessment as well as completing your logbook hours. Take home tests are a continuing part of your assessment.
“This course is very practical and hands on experience in an unpretentious, fun environment. I think it is a great introduction for people interested in learning about Pilates in a practical sense. The teaching in class (as much as it was dreaded) provided hands on teaching experience. It is open to all and helps to boost your confidence.”
