It's a step between attending a group class and receiving an individual personal training session. Depending on the location by running small group sessions, a pilates instructor's hourly rate is at least £30 per hour, which the participants can split between themselves.
The salary as a Pilates teacher really depends on how much you want to work and earn. According to payscale, Pilate Instructors can earn between £22k-£52k a year. As a Pilates instructor, you may only plan to teach one or two Pilates classes a week for a small income as something you enjoy part-time.
Alternatively, you could also choose to turn your passion for Pilates into a career by instructing a variety of Pilates sessions throughout the week. Whichever option you choose, you’ll see that teaching Pilates can provide you with plenty of opportunities to earn a decent Pilates Instructor salary or use this as a great source of additional income.

One of the most lucrative ways to generate income is to teach group classes and charge participants individually. If you find a suitable hall (such as a church or village hall, community centre or dance studio) and hire the space for a reasonable rate, your income would be £50+ from a one-hour class. It’s the quality of teaching that participants are interested in, so limit your numbers. Participants don’t mind paying a little bit extra if they know the class won’t be overcrowded and they’ll receive your attention throughout the session.
Run inclusive classes, work with a wider range of clients in your community and significantly enhance your teaching skills.
