During section 1, it is important that you start to log your pilates hours participating in classes and discuss with your home studio the use of their reformers and a potential shadow teaching opportunity. This gives the studio time to consider your request and you should mention that you are studying to be a pilates reformer instructor and could potentially teach with them at the end of your studies. If you do not have access to a pilates studio straight away, you can purchase a reformer online to practice with and master the exercise repertoire.
Is where you start to learn all the fundamentals of pilates. It is broken up into 13 modules.
Each of these modules has a theory component and then a multiple choice OR true/false examination at the end.
Don’t rush through this section as it will provide the fundamentals for creating the ideal pilates atmosphere and provide a foundation for your instructional learning.
By the end of Section 2, you should have completed your 10 classes and started to self master the pilates equipment. The next section is about the exercises.
The Exercise Manual where you’ll will find a list of all the exercises covered. Each exercise comes with a name, an explanation of set up, description of breathing and how to execute the movement, props used, muscle group, movement, spring tension and benefits. Each description will also come with imagery and cueing for correction There will be modifications of regression (if the exercise is too hard) or progression (if the exercise is too easy). Each exercise comes with pictures and a video explaining the exercise. There is also a hardcopy of the textbook/manual provided to every student with a QR code to scan that will take you directly to each exercise and for you to make notes with.
By the end of section 3, you should have almost completed the 30 hours of self mastery, the 30 hours of shadow teaching/assisting, completed the questionnaires and completed the log books of each and submit to us for verification.
By this stage you should be ready for section 4 – the final assessment. You should have also completed the 13 multiple choice theory assessments from Section 2.
The final assessment. We have provided you with the marking criteria, a how-to guide for video recording the acceptable formats for submission and you will need to submit the final rationale document and class plan to us with the video submission. Allow up to 7 days to mark the video and provide feedback.
Upon successful submission and passing the final assessment, you will be emailed your certificate and ready to teach Reformer Pilates.

KT is inspired by the Japanese term Kintsugi. This is a story about mending a broken teapot with glue but adding gold dust into the glue. The result is taking what was orginally 1 piece, and turning into a stronger and more beautiful piece of everyday equipment. Reformer Pilates at KT Health & Wellness are 50 minute classes that will elongate your body to have you feeling taller and longer, provide a full body workout – you will sweat in our classes – it’s not a chill out session, and will build your strength and endurance while conditioning your core to handle the stress you place through your body on a daily basis.

There are many variations on how Pilates is taught and practiced. But the at foundation of all Pilates practice, there are a number of common components. Pilates focuses on the core stabilising muscles, spinal alignment, posture, and breathing. It uses exercises and stretches (with or without the use of equipment) to improve physical strength, flexibility, posture, and self-awareness. Drawing upon relevant clinical research, Reformer Pilates training provides an evidence-based approach to teaching Pilates in the clinical setting. Pilates involves learning a variety of movements addressing lumbopelvic stability, postural education, correct movement patterning, and body awareness.
Reformer Pilates is the closest form of Pilates that mimics what Joseph Pilates originally intended when he created the pilates training program. Back in the Second World War, Joseph would use old hospital bed springs and create resistance training movements for injured soldiers to increase their movement and overall health. Reformer pilates still use springs as both an Ode to Joseph and also they provide a dynamic resistance along the line of direction for the muscle and joint.
