Available in-studio and online (coming soon)
While Barre is our heritage, Barre Body has now been running our signature flowing and fun Pilates Mat classes at all 9 of our studios for years. We’ve trained hundreds of teachers and thousands of clients in the Pilates method, and we hear the same thing time and time again: our Pilates Mat classes are truly something special. That’s because we don’t just teach the repertoire. You’ll learn all the exercises of course, but more importantly, we’ll teach you how to sequence your classes with dynamic layering, seamless transitions, and funky variations. You’ll learn not just what to teach, but why and how. And as a result, you’ll graduate knowing how to design flowing, feel-good, fun Pilates classes, that your clients will love you for.
A hard-copy manual including every exercise in the repertoire, notes, progressions and modifications, pictures and anatomical information. The holy grail.
Access to our online training portal including video demonstrations of every single exercise, hundreds of sample classes, anatomy tutorials and more.
Become a lifetime member of our training community with access to a closed Facebook group where you’ll find teaching tips, job postings, Q&A and support.
Following the course, you’ll receive regular email support to help you work through the material and complete your certification. Our training team are always on hand to answer your questions and guide you.
Barre Body is recognised as an industry leader, with our graduates teaching all over the world. Teach in any studio, any style, anywhere.
Because we teach the art of sequencing and class planning, you’ll be equipped to design your own classes with confidence. Or, use one of our sample class plans for guidance.
You’ll graduate with a full barre or pilates teaching certification. Our courses are approved by Fitness Australia for 15 CECs.
Our Pilates Mat teacher training course is 150 hours of fun! So you know exactly how those hours are made up, here is a breakdown (before you have one):
What happens post course?
Over the weeks post-course you will receive emails from us as study guides to help you to complete your anatomy and repertoire revision. If at the end of the training you can’t look at another bone, muscle or exercise, take a moment. Save the emails in a folder in your inbox, and use them as a guide when you are ready to get back into it. Don’t leave it too long though, as the material will be fresh in your head straight after the course!
What should I expect from the course?
You’ll get nothing but love and support from us! Barre Body instructors are exceptional, and always there to offer you guidance every step of the way. We make it our mission to make the information relevant and approachable, so even if you have zero teaching experience, you’ll be well looked after.
