The Integrated Pilates Teacher Course (IPTC) is a COMPOSITE program comprising Modules in Exercise Sciences and Pilates. It is structured with due consideration to the following principles.

  • Each Pilates student will receive in Theory & Practice, to the extent possible, the fullest information relating to history and philosophy of Joseph Pilates and his “Body Contrology”
  • Each academic module (“Module”) logically leads the student to the next higher “Module” such that he / she gains mastery of theory that is practically applicable and practice which is based on principles of science.
  • The IPTC allows the student to pick the learning pathway and progress at a pace that works best for him / her. A student can get certified in the individual Modules or gather all the Modules and become a certified Integrated Pilates Teacher.
  • The student evaluation will be based on assessment of theoretical understanding, grasp of practical training and ability to deliver knowledge to clients.
  • Develop a competent Pilates teacher recognized and respected internationally.

The IPTC is thus structured in the following Six "Modules"

Introduction to Exercise Physiology: Anatomy & Physiology, Energy Systems, Training Effects and Homeostasis, Muscle Structure and Muscle Contraction Mechanism, Muscle Fibres, etc.

Theory & Practice of Kinesiology & Biomechanics: Planes and Axes of Movements. Structure of Joints and Connective Tissues, Types of Muscles – agonist, antagonist, etc, Movements about Joints and Muscles, Names, Types of Muscles and their role in Muscle Contraction, etc.
