  • You want to make a living doing what you love while helping others

What are the requirements?

  • at least one year of Mat Pilates and one class with Shannon or at least 10 Mat Pilates classes with Shannon

  • a clean bill of health and no injuries

  • a sincere commitment to teaching (this isn't the course to take for purely educational purposes)

Time of year is the biggest consideration for most people and then location. 

The three locations are close enough to each other that you could travel easily to each one from anywhere across the Lower Mainland. 

The Spring training in Vancouver is Hot Pilates focused. However all of the trainings will prepare you to teach Pilates for heated and non-heated classes.
