Why train with Barre Body?

Reformer Pilates was once the realm of rehab-focused clinical sessions (necessary but a touch boring – don’t tell!). Now in-demand everywhere from boutique studios to big name gyms, Reformer Pilates has become more dynamic, creative, and fitness-focused. Teachers need to be equipped to teach and manage different levels and needs within a group class. Barre Body is Australia’s industry leader when it comes to boutique fitness, and we know what it takes to deliver exceptional group classes. That’s why our Reformer course teaches you not just the repertoire, but how to teach it. We’ll show you how to confidently design flowing, fun Reformer classes that transition seamlessly (keeping those spring changes to a minimum) while offering a great workout no matter who’s in your class.

Our Pilates Reformer course covers

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Alignment principles
  • Industry leading Reformer repertoire
  • Dynamic and effective teaching skills
  • Formatting and sequencing for 45 + 60 minute classes
  • Hands-on adjustments

Course structure

Our Reformer Pilates 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):

  • 10 hours pre-training
  • 50 contact hours delivered in the studio
  • 20 hours anatomy self-study via online review modules
  • 20 hours repertoire self-study via online and manual review

  • 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.
