The Joseph Pilates Techniques

Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, a German-born fitness specialist, originally as an injury recovery method for dancers and soldiers. Joseph Pilates techniques are important to us, this is why we have incorporated these into our Pilates Instructor courses which have been built and written by our in-house Pilates experts.

Our Pilates Instructor courses dive into all six key principles from Joseph Pilates’s original method to ensure that all principles of Pilates are reflected in what you will learn.
