Instructor Training FAQs
What programs are included in the Balanced Body Pilates Instructor Training
at Body Evolve Studios?
We offer Mat, Reformer, and Comprehensive (includes Mat, Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair, and Barrels) Instructor Training programs. See the Balanced Body website for details.
What is required to complete a Balanced Body Pilates Instructor Training program?
You must complete all prerequisites, modules, log hours (observation, self practice, and student teaching), and pass the written and practical exam associated with your program. See the Balanced Body website for details.
Do I need a lot of Pilates experience before I begin this program?
As these are instructor-training programs, there is a minimum of 20 mat sessions required prior to Mat 1, and a minimum of 30 reformer sessions required prior to Reformer 1.
Do previous private and group Pilates sessions count toward my log hours?
Yes. It is, however, highly recommended that you continue to be a student of Pilates during and after your instructor-training program.
What documentation do I receive after each module?
After each module, Balanced Body will send you a Certificate of Completion – stating you have participated in the module– this is NOT a certification. See the Balanced Body website for details.
Do I have to complete all log hours at Body Evolve?
It is not required, but we highly recommend that you do some of your log hours at Body Evolve. You may complete your log hours at another studio if approved by Body Evolve and the other studio owner/manager.
If I started my training with another organization and would like to complete the Balanced Body program instead, will my previous coursework count?
Balanced Body has a Bridge program that is designed to address this specific need. See the Balanced Body website for details.
