At Tula Training we have invested significant time and thought into creating the optimal environment for you to learn your craft as a first-class Pilates teacher and be fully equipped to teach from graduation. Our Pilates Matwork Teacher Training Course is accredited by governing body, award winning Active IQ and REPs.
Highest standard of training
Our Pilates Matwork Teacher Training Course gives you access onto the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) at Level 3: the recognised UK national standard. This qualification will automatically distinguish you as being trained at the highest possible standard.
During the 10 practical days studying face-to-face with Tula Training you will learn how to safely teach clients as part of both group classes and one-to-one. You will learn how to assess and adapt exercises; plan stimulating, safe and fun Pilates classes; and be ready to teach from day one of graduation.
You will be expertly guided through your practical Pilates teacher training by highly experienced tutors with over 20 years of first hand industry knowledge.
Whereas other Pilates training courses are often run by teaching staff who no longer teach Pilates to clients, Tula Training tutors all currently work as Pilates teachers. This ensures we have a wealth of up-to-date expertise and relevant working experience to share with you as you learn.
Additionally, all our tutors have been handpicked to provide you with the greatest variety of experience and relevant specialisms. Our anatomy of Pilates modules are taught by Tula Training founder, Carolyn Bailey, a highly experienced Specialist Musculoskeletal and Clinical Pilates Rehabilitation Physiotherapist.
We have been successfully employing Pilates teachers for over 15 years at our thriving sister studio in Kemptown – Pilates in Brighton – and know what it takes to be a first-rate Pilates teacher. We have therefore developed our training content to far exceed the minimum requirements necessary to pass your final exam.
Our aim is to give you the very best start to your career, not just as a competent Pilates teacher, but as an exceptional Pilates teacher.
Working Pilates studio
Unlike many other Pilates teacher training programmes which take place in dry education centres, Tula Training is based within our busy, working sister-studio – Pilates in Brighton.
As well as being a fun, friendly and active environment to learn in, you will also get a real impression of what it’s like to work in a live Pilates studio.
With a variety of diverse mat classes and experienced teaching styles to observe, learn from and even partake in, you will benefit from our 360 degree approach to practical Pilates teacher training.
Plus, with the unique opportunity of working with us after completion of your course, you also get the chance to find out in advance what it’s like to be part of the welcoming Pilates in Brighton team.
We purposefully keep our course numbers small so that we can give you the necessary depth of teaching practice and one-to-one support in order for you to be fully confident in your teaching capabilities and knowledge.
Our highly experienced and versatile tutors are always on hand throughout the duration of the course to help you with any specific areas or concerns.
