Pilates Yoga Movement (PYM) Teacher Training is a unique programme delivering an unparalleled standard and quality of tuition to student Pilates teachers in the UK.
The course includes an apprenticeship that aims to create fully rounded teachers who not only possess a deep understanding of anatomy; physiology; biomechanics and movement, but who are equipped to adapt their teaching to the individual according to his or her needs.
PYM Teacher Training instills in its teachers a love of learning, of enquiry, and integrity, whilst remaining firmly committed to the principles of the Joseph Pilates method.
PYM Training is dedicated to developing skilled, current, thoughtful teachers with a passion for continued learning and a good understanding of embodied anatomy and physiology.
We believe strongly that the Pilates Method should to be learnt in its full form and therefore, rather than separating our courses into “Matwork” and “Bridging/Apparatus” elements, we offer a Fully Comprehensive Teacher Training programme. However, we welcome existing teachers with a Matwork qualification to extend their qualification via a Bridging process.
PYM Training understand the demands of modern life, constraints of finances and time, and are continually striving to make our courses as accessible as possible, whilst maintaining the robust standards we are known for within the industry.
We have adapted the structure of our Comprehensive Training Programme into Modules, which when combined lead to a comprehensive qualification and entry into the Pilates Foundation examination for accreditation.
