Equipment Series Overview


The Equipment Certification Series (Levels 1 - 4) offers you comprehensive Rehabilitation Pilates training on large Equipment. Run over 4 separate weekends the Equipment Certification Series covers training on the Cadillac, Split Pedal Chair, Arc Barrel and Reformer. Levels have to be completed in sequential order and there is no minimum time limit between each level.


​We will analyse the movements first, then discuss why you would choose one piece of equipment over another for a particular client. One of the beauties of Pilates is that the same movement on the reformer or Cadillac can be made easier or harder. 


To truly become a great instructor you need to know why you would choose one piece of equipment over another for any given movement. Furthermore, being trained in all the Pilates equipment pieces allows you to operate in a busy studio whilst your favoured piece of equipment is being used, allowing you to adapt your session so that the client is not affected in any way. This truly is one of the most comprehensive programs in the world.
