Recurring event see all

June 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm July 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

The Center’s 2 Day  16 hour Pre and Postnatal Pilates 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. Course Description This course will show you how to “Prepare the Body” and “Repair the Body” during pregnancy and the postnatal period.
