Becoming a Pilates instructor takes time and effort. Balanced Body has designed their world renowned program to make the process easy to understand, flexible and affordable.  

You can take the modules individually, and depending on your goals, you can take as long as you need to complete the program. You must take the Mat and Reformer Modules in order (for expample Mat 1 before Mat 2) , but you may start with Reformer and then do Mat and Apparatus later in order to complete the comprehensive program.

Every module includes a certificate of completion for that course. The module certificates establish you as a Balanced Body student teacher. Additional personal practice, observation and student teaching hours are required to become a fully qualified Balanced Body Pilates Instructor.
