We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new and improved Classical Mat Certification Program! This program will provide you with a solid foundation in classical Pilates mat work and equip you with the skills and confidence to teach Pilates mat classes safely and effectively. 

Zoey Trap, Peak Pilates Executive Director of Education and Training, shares more helpful insight about the program: “The new Classical Mat Certification Program has been thoughtfully designed around the Beginning and Intermediate Mat exercise orders. To help you reach a more diverse population, it now includes more focus on fundamentals which can be helpful to beginners and de-conditioned students. It also incorporates Add-In exercises to help build better movement skills and functional fitness. Now the program also features traditional ending exercises to end the workouts.”

How is this different from the previous program? 

The previous program had 3 levels and was focused solely on classical exercises. It was conducted in 2-day live modules. The new program is 2 levels and encompasses more Fundamentals, Add-in work and Endings – expanding the syllabus tremendously.  

Additionally, the first level now includes intermediate work while the second contains intermediate and advanced work. As well, both are offered online or with a live option. 

How much does the program cost?  

  • Option #1: The online program costs $650, which includes all digital course materials and assessment fees.  
  • Option #2: The online program with the additional 6-hour live session, in which you will receive feedback and coaching virtually or in person, is only an additional $100. 

Of the two options mentioned above, which should I sign up for?  

Option #2 is specifically aimed at helping you to improve your understanding and performance of the exercises; as well as providing invaluable coaching on your teaching. If this feels right to you, go with this option.  

If I choose Option #2, do I complete the optional portion before or after the online portion?  

Once you’re enrolled in the online course, we’ll provide you with the dates for live and virtual offerings, so you can choose the format that best meets your needs.
