Mat Certification

 

Peak Pilates® Mat Certification Program provides a solid foundation in the Classical Mat exercises, while delivering the tools necessary to progress individual clients and group classes safely and effectively in a health club or studio setting. We focus on "real life teaching," helping to prepare for the reality of what happens after the course is finished, and how to set yourself—and your class—up for success.

 

All levels teach the corresponding exercises, while layering in Building Blocks, Modifications and Exercise Guidelines designed to make you a more confident and effective teacher. We incorporate how to use the Power Circle® for every exercise in the program, as well as how to use props to support clients and help them improve alignment. Students are coached on how to effectively communicate and teach the exercises in a dynamic and impactful format. All levels encompass Peak Pilates's proprietary Five-Part Formula for Success, focusing on professional development and the skills that ensure confidence and mastery.
