Is CCIPT nationally accepted?

Gāyo’s Certificate Course for Integrated Pilates Teachers is India’s first and oldest formally structured Pilates Teacher Training program.


In 2009, Gāyo introduced Pilates Institute of America’s (PIA) Pilates Teacher training programs. Ms Frances Owens, co-founder of PIA’s co-founder, who now runs Pilates Training Camps in USA trained and certified our Master Trainers. Ms Owens has worked with Lolita San Miguel, the only living Pilates Teacher to be trained by the legendary Joseph Pilates himself.


India does not have a national Fitness Industry or Association which can establish standards of fitness education and training, code of practice, etc.  (like the Indian Medical Association, for example).


We thus believe that aligning with one of the best, nationally respected Universities is the only way to establish best practices in fitness education and training on basis of the highest academic standards in India.


The certificate is issued jointly with the BPCA’s College of Physical Education, University of Mumbai.


Is CCIPT internationally accepted?

CCIPT is internationally accredited by European Union’s Europe Active EREPS Level 4. This course is accepted in over 40 countries. It officially supports the self-study courses of International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), USA, which are accepted in over 90 countries.
