Lectures & Live Tutorials
Each week you will have an online lecture and a LIVE tutorial with your trainers and classmates.
Weekly attend an online, 90-minute lecture where you will be introduced to new skills and concepts. Along with your lectures, you’ll find your lecture notes that you can print out or view on your device to revise and practice content learnt each week.
Attend your live, 90-minute tutorial with a trainer and a small group of classmates. Your trainer will guide you through practicing the skills and discussing the concepts introduced in that week’s lecture. There are multiple tutorial times across the week including days, evenings and weekend times. You can book the same time every week, or change it up.
Live & On-Demand Masterclasses
Masterclasses are a Pilates class especially for Pilates instructors
Each week you will participate in or observe two, 1-hour Pilates Masterclasses taught by a Breathe Education trainer or special guest. These classes are incredible because not only do you get a workout, but the trainer will also talk you through their methodology, plus there’s a 10-minute Q&A at the end so you can really pick apart the programming, cueing and modifications.
Masterclasses will not only build your strength, flexibility, and skill with the exercises, they’ll build your teaching skills.
Each week you will participate in 2 PT (practice teaching) sessions where you will practice doing, and teaching Pilates with a small group of classmates. In these sessions, you can practice your repertoire, practice teaching and share layers and sequences that you love with each other. We’ll give you a structure so you know what to practice, how to practice, and how to give useful feedback.
Your coursework each week consists of short videos, intriguing quizzes and some written tasks for example creating a class program. You will need roughly 2 hours each week for coursework, but because the videos and quizzes are generally short, you can break up this time across the day or the week.

Total time commitment: 9 hours per week
Your total study load of 9 hours per week is spread across the week, and comprises multiple different learning methods – lectures, tutorials, masterclasses, practice teaching and coursework.
This program design is much more flexible for you, PLUS it maximizes your learning by dripping the content and practice to you steadily, keeping you engaged, and learning the same content from several different angles – e.g. you’ll learn the theory of the exercises in your lecture, receive feedback on your technique in the tutorial, practice teaching them in your practice sessions, and learn how to cue them in the Masterclass, then answer questions on the correct technique in your coursework.
Choose your own session times from weekday AM, weekday PM and weekend times.
You don’t need to be perfect at all the moves to do this program.
Quite to the contrary. If you are doing regular Pilates classes at any level, you are fit enough to do this training.
One of the biggest misconceptions people have is that you need to be able to do all the moves perfectly before you can be a great teacher.
That is just plain not true. Doing the moves and teaching the moves are two different skills.
You need to be fit enough to do a 50-minute beginner or open-level Pilates class, but you don’t need to have any particular level of flexibility, or strength, or grace. You certainly don’t need to have a thigh gap.
