Our Pilates Teacher Training Program is designated by the Private Training Institute Branch of British Columbia and is one of a kind! It is based on the Classical Pilates repertoire and infused with Franklin Method Conceptions. By the end of the program you will acquire a strong knowledge base of body mechanics, Pilates anatomy, basic natural functions of the body as well as a strong understanding of the Pilates Method on all pieces of equipment. Upon graduation of the program you will receive a Diploma and you will be fully qualified to teach the full level 5 Pilates repertoire and therefore be able to assist other trainees going through our program.
Established in 2002 and then Incorporated in 2022, Pilates from the Center, Inc. (PFTC) offers a spacious, fully equipped 2000 sq. foot studio with Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Mat and Yamuna body rolling equipment. We are located in the heart of Lower Lonsdale in the Shipyard's District of North Vancouver, BC.
In addition to being a fully-functioning studio, PFTC is a School of Natural Movement offering a comprehensive Intermediate and Advanced Pilates Teacher Training Program. The Advanced program is the only Canadian teacher training program to receive the Pilates School Approval Program (PSAP) designation by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA). The purpose of the PSAP is to provide a systematic approach by which Pilates schools can demonstrate their compliance with accepted standards, pursue continuous improvement, and be recognized for doing so.
At PFTC, we believe you need to embody the full classical repertoire to be a great teacher so If you're interested in becoming a Pilates Instructor and being challenged both physically and mentally, this is where you'll want to be.
