Pilates Mat & Equipment Certification Program

DK Pilates Academy
The mat and equipment training program is an all inclusive course that focuses on the history of the Pilates theory and technique through mat work and exercise on the various pieces of Pilates equipment, including the Trapeze Table, Chair and Reformer.
Students will begin by learning mat work based on Joseph Pilates’ original series, as well as an evolution of Pilates mat work utilizing various props, such as the small ball, FitBall, TheraBand and magic circle.

Students will then progress to the studio portion of the course, training in Pilates exercise on the Pilates Equipment.

This training program is available in studio or at a location of your choice and is available either in the scheduled group settings or as private sessions.
