STOTT PILATES INSTRUCTOR
The STOTT PILATES Intensive Program (Level 1) is intended for those already working in the fields of fitness or movement, or who have completed the Functional Anatomy course and meet the Pilates class requirements. The focus is on expanding student’s current knowledge while delivering complete instruction in STOTT PILATES principles and Essential and Intermediate exercises in a fast-paced format.
This option is ideal for those who are unable to devote the amount of time required in our Comprehensive program due to work and/or scheduling issues.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to teach the STOTT PILATES method of exercise. Upon passing the exam, they will be recognized as a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor.
