The Center’s  Pre and Postnatal Health and Exercise Specialist Certification is the flagship course that started The Center’s teacher training courses. When it was first implemented in 1998, the information was deemed “controversial” and “went against the grain” of what was accepted at the time. With nearly 20 years in the business of transforming how teachers look at the pre and postnatal client, we can say that our programs have changed lives, have always been a couple of steps ahead of the game and with nearly 2000 teachers in 40 countries we are proud to be the leading pre and postnatal program for Pilates worldwide.

Workshop price- USD400. This includes two digital manuals and a relaxation and visualization audio. 

Pre requisite- Support your Floor and Rocking and Rolling to Release

This course must be completed before the Pilates Equipment Course
