Joseph Pilates created the original mat exercises as ‘homework’ for his students to do on the days that they weren’t working with him, at his studio, on the apparatus. The Pilates in Motion course is designed to give students the experience and understanding of the mat exercises in the context of working on the apparatus. The beauty of working with the apparatus is the constant feedback loop between the individual practicing and the apparatus in use as well as close supervision of a teacher.
We have seen repeatedly that Mat qualified teachers have felt huge benefits to their understanding of the Matwork and therefore their teaching as a result of undertaking the Studio training so our intention is to bring the benefits of the apparatus work ‘forward’, into the Mat teacher training course structure.
Joseph Pilates only taught private sessions. It was never meant to be taught in big classes as the close supervision is not there. We highly recommend all students to gain the experience of working with the apparatus.
