STUDIO Comprehensive Certification
Total course hourse: 850 hours
A Corpus Studios Studio Comprehensive Certification gives you the ability to teach Pilates as it was originally envisioned by Joseph Pilates: as a full body system combination of Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs, Barrels, and small apparatus. It is excellent for anyone who wants to gain a deep and thorough understanding of Pilates and give their clients the best and most varied training possible.
The recommended way to complete this certification is to book and complete each level of apparatus and Mat at the same time - for example, book and complete Mat Foundation, Reformer Foundation, and Cadillac/Tower Foundation before moving onto the next level of each. Doing the program in this manner will keep you with a group of students, give you a single set of Apprentice Hours to complete for each level, and give you the opportunity to pay for courses with a special package price. If you decide later in your Pilates training that you want to get a Corpus Studios Studio Comprehensive Certification, you can still do that; your Apprentice Teacher Trainer Hours and booking will just be different depending upon how far you are in your training.
A Corpus Studios Studio Comprehensive Certification will take at least 2 years to complete.
