Client-centered Curriculum

 

Our 474-Hour curriculum honors the tradition of classical Pilates movements while equipping students with the tools to adapt the Pilates method to any and all clients. Polestar Teacher Trainings empower critical thinking through concepts rather than repertoire.  Our delivery is a hybrid of online lectures and in-person modules that give support throughout the entirety of the training. Our program will equip you to:

  • Teach Pilates movements on all the Pilates apparatus (Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair, Ladder Barrel and Spine Corrector)
  • Understand precautions, contraindications and modifications for injury and special populations
  • Utilize tactile cueing to provide hands-on guidance
  • Employ neuro-linguistic techniques and imagery to give meaningful cues
  • Build confidence through observation and practice teaching
  • Assess and develop thoughtful programs for any client
  • Prepare meaningful sequences based on Polestar’s sequencing design protocol

The hybrid course consists of online learning modules followed by in-person labs and virtual discussions that allow you to evaluate the practical applications of Pilates exercises, develop assessment techniques, understand movement sequences, and modify exercises and programs for individuals. Completion of the Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Program qualifies you to sit for the National Pilates Certification Program exam.
