What if I have never taken a lesson in Authentic Pilates™ but I am considering certification?

The best way to decide if this career is right for you is to engage in private sessions which will help you understand the physicality of Authentic Pilates™. This system of muscular re-education will teach you to move differently and to use your muscles and body in a new way. You will probably find the first few sessions challenging, but don't let that discourage you. This process will help you understand what it would be like to teach others.

It is required for all applicants to take 35 prerequisite private sessions with a USPA or Pilates Inc certified teacher to gain experience and understanding of this form of exercise. This system of muscular reeducation will teach you to move differently and to use your muscles and body in a new way. After the completion of the documented prerequisite sessions an evaluation and an interview are arranged at a Certification Center. Certification centers are located in New York City, NY; Ft Lauderdale, FL; Providence, RI; Jersey City, NJ, Merida, Mexico; Seoul, Korea; and Brazil.
