Have now done my Cert IV and Clinical Diploma in Pilates with Breathe. Without doubt, the best value for money of anything I've ever spent money on. If you want to learn an evidence based approach to teaching Pilates and how to really help people to move fearlessly using knowledge of pain science and the original repertoire, this is the course for you. Incredible group of dedicated teachers, who inspire lifelong learning and what is actually proven science, as opposed to historical myths which dominate the industry. You'll come out of this course confident to teach anyone and help them live better lives. Could not recommend this highly enough, such a talented group of individuals led by the generous and immensely talented Raphael Bender.

What a GREAT experience! I feel confident going out into the world and teaching! I did the Cert IV and Diploma with Breathe Education and would highly recommend it to anyone considering this career. Breathe make choosing a new career possible for people like myself (a Mum of 3). It's flexible, you learn and watch different instructors who have the world of knowledge, it's interesting, factual and overall it is professionally run. Not only that, I met the most amazing people along the way and nobody judges you if you can't touch your toes! If you are thinking about it - GO FOR IT! Don't delay! I'm the happiest I have ever been!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely blown away with the professionalism and knowledge shown by Breathe Education and their trainers. Gained evidence-based and contemporary information in my Diploma of Clinical Pilates. Online learning with them made 2020 a year worthwhile.

I have just completed my Certificate IV Pilates course with Breathe Education, and it has been the most enjoyable, positive, informative, simplistic, professional course I’ve ever done! I feel very confident in all that I’ve learnt in this course and it’s all because of the wonderful tutors who have made this possible. I can honestly say that studying Pilates in the online space is possible and works extremely well. I am very grateful to all the wonderful staff at breathe who are always there for everyone for support and not just during the course but afterwards too. Thank you so much Breathe! I’m so excited for this new chapter of my life. xxxx

What an incredible experience completing my Cert IV in mat work and reformer pilates with Breathe Education!! The teachers are seriously second to none and the environment is incredibly comfortable. I'm feeling confident and very satisfied with the outcomes from this course and beyond grateful for the amazing team at Breathe for delivering this course in such a fun, interactive and supportive way. Highly recommend!!!

I signed up during the lockdown in melb for the cert 4 in matwork and pilates. Best decision i ever made.The online learning format is very flexible and the content of the course is life changing. You not only learn how to cue and teach pilates, but also many other skills that are transferable into your own practice and even everyday life. If possible i love pilates even more than when i signed up.If you love pilates, this course is for you.

I am very grateful to be part of an educational institution that is passionate about what they do. Heath has been my main teacher during my course and he has been very supportive, testing my physical capabilities and confidence in teaching Pilates. Lastly thank you for making it available online, it has definitely helped with life and work commitments. Thanks again Breathe Australia :)

Amazing company to be valued right from the beginning with ringing up to talk to someone about Breathe and their certifications. I enjoyed every single class and tutorial and lecture. We always had fun while learning and everyone was so nice to each other in the classes and practice teaching. The research is up to date which helped me to learn more after my other certifications with other companies in the past. Keeping up to date is imperative with my teaching and instructing at studios and fitness centers. The feedback from the teachers and the students was always positive and helped us learn from being hands on in the certification. The master classes a amazing. So we could practice at any time of the day with them being recorded, it helped me practice when I had different shifts at work. I would definitely recommend Breathe to people wanting to learn to become a Pilates instructor and Pilates teachers to improve and to learn more modifications with the at home reformer and just the mat Pilates with different exercises available from the Breathe teachers.

When I enrolled in this course, it was due to be delivered face to face over a number of weekends and I was so excited to meet new people and learn from the best in the industry. When covid hit, it moved online and I was reluctant to say the least. In fact if the amazing Lizzie hadn’t given me a pep talk when she sensed my motivation was fizzling out, I probably would have withdrawn. I’m so grateful Lizzie gave me that push because the course was better than I could have hoped for. The content is definitely engaging but the magic is in the delivery. Cloe and Raph are such incredibly skilled educators and they really know how to keep things simple while still cramming in a lot of incredibly important information (backed by the most current science) into every lecture and tutorial. At first I wasn’t sure how well it would work with two young kids hanging off me during lockdown but Cloe would just welcome them to the class and make them feel part of it all. It meant I felt comfortable and relaxed and could participate fully.The one thing that really surprised me though was the social connection! Everyone was so supportive and even though we weren’t face to face, we formed friendships easily and seeing everyone’s faces on my screen every week really helped during lockdown. Thank you to the whole team! Shout out to Heath, Belinda and Sharrman who I didn’t have every week but when I did, they were amazing. So much knowledge, kindness and passion in one team!

I've recently completed my Certificate IV in Pilates Matwork and Reformer with Breathe Education, and it has been the most wonderful experience. All the instructors and educators were engaging, enthusiastic and motivating. From the master classes to weekly tutorials, I found it exciting and invigorating to attend. Being through a online platform, didn't impact my learning, I felt that I was completing classes in person from the comfort of my home. Thank you Breathe, for providing such a wonderful course.
07:43 12 Nov 20
I had been contemplating studying to be a Pilates teacher for years and had multiple recommendations from Pilates instructors to study through Breathe and I can honestly say it didn’t disappoint at all.The course was fun, informative, thorough and the lecturers were always so passionate and positive and open about everything. I leave feeling supported, equipped and fully ready to step straight into the industry.Personal shout out to Sharrman who is without a doubt one of the best instructors I have ever met.I would highly recommend anyone who wants to be an instructor, to study through Breathe Education.
10:21 11 Nov 20
Doing the cert 4 in pilates matwork and reformer has been such a transformative and informative experience for me personally. Breathe uses the most up to date methods of teaching and provides an education that is based on the most relevant evidence. I feel empowered to move forward in my career as a Pilates instructor with the utmost confidence because of Breathe Education and it's trainers.
23:48 10 Nov 20
I had the absolute best experience with Breathe. The way they have adapted to online learning is of the highest quality. I cannot wait to take the skills I have learnt and use them in future employment. Would highly recommend.
12:11 06 Nov 20
I loved my experience completing my Cert IV at breathe education. The team were so proactive and acted so quickly during the pandemic that I was able to complete my Cert IV, during COVID, all the way from my home in rural Northern Territory. The lecturers were down to earth and answered all my questions with grace and patience. I also wasn’t singled out for not having my own reformer, with modifications for a DIY version that felt super similar to the real thing (possibly harder!). I recommend this school to everyone who asks, would totally go back :)
06:05 05 Nov 20
What an incredible education experience. When I enrolled; I was nervous about studying a physical movement course online. And I couldn’t have been proven more wrong. I walked out of Breathe Education with my CERT IV in Pilates Matwork and Reformer ready to step straight into the industry and to undertake my own self employment. The confidence instilled in me by the evidence-based educational resources, incredible trainers and unique/effective practical teaching hours methods of delivery is not comparable. I am certain that my clients are in safe hands with this education behind me and continued mentorship going forward from the team. Highly recommend Breathe to anyone wanting to undertake a world-class, government accredited certification.
05:32 05 Nov 20
I cannot speak more highly of Breathe Education and the whole team of educators. I started my Cert IV in May, and the whole structure had been adjusted due to Covid. I feel Breathe created a program that suited everyone - and constantly made adjustments and improvements as the course went on to cater for the constant changes happening around us. Having access to so many educators was a BIG win for me doing this course during Covid - it allowed for a-lot of variety, and for me to learn many different styles of teaching. I cant wait to further my education with the options Breathe have available.
05:10 05 Nov 20
I completed my Cert IV in Pilates (mat and reformer) with Breathe in October. It was a fabulous experience, and I am already beginning to find work as a teacher just a month later.The online format of the course worked really well for me. Having tutorials and lectures each week meant that I was always engaged with the course work, and able to structure the course requirements around my work week. It was also great having access to multiple Pilates masterclasses throughout the week -- this made it really easy to complete my self-practice hours while studios were shut down in Melbourne.The Breathe Team are just wonderful, and are really quick to respond to any query. While I've only met most of them through a webcam, I felt supported, heard and valued throughout my training.I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone considering undertaking a teacher training program, especially to those who are looking for a flexible schedule and lots of support from their teacher trainers.

Very disappointed with Breathe, very unethical Education Centre. I booked the online course: Certificate IV in Pilates Matwork and Reformer November 2020 intake 45 days prior the course. To secure my spot I paid online $50 deposit. Due to my Injury I cancelled my enrollment (43 days prior the course) and they illegally charged my card of $549 to make their 10% of the course which is $599. When I contacted Melodie Johnson – Student Success Manager she didn’t believe me, I provided to her with my medical certificate, but she still was finding excuses to not to refund the money. It is so unethical to operate like that for an Australian business. Also, I have found they changed their refund policy by deleting this part at all. In original T&C it said they refund money in two cases: 1. Due to an injury 2. If member person’s family member dies. As it was an online contract, they just easily changed the Policy. I was reading it with my GF together, so she saw the old conditions also. I can’t believe a business which comes up as a first line in Google search operate like that. I am sure I didn’t take anybody’s spot by cancelling my enrollment 43 days prior the start. To me it looks like they don’t have enough students and they work the way they did to me on order to make their money. They obviously pay a lot of marketing fee to be the first source to come up and don’t refund anyway.I was new to the industry and I said it to the sale person – Peta Henning about it, she provided me with misleading information about the certification. They so actively advertised themselves as Australia’s only Government Accredited, that is correct, but a school not necessarily need to have that to teach Pilates , so students may work after that in all types of environment as Gym, Pilates studio or independent Instructor, so for those who isn’t in the industry very easy to trick. Peta was so pushy with to make her sale and said ‘tomorrow Is the last day to enrol’, that I don’t have a time for my proper research. Well it played a big role and I made my rush enrolment. Later on, just curiosity I made them a call again and enrolment was available even two weeks later. So don’t get cought on that Sale trick.For these many years of Breathe operating, they only taught 2000 student overall, what isn’t too many and their price a bit over charged, I recommend to do a proper search and don’t rush with signing up with them.I had to lodge a complaint with Fair Trading for that poor service and I had to dispute the illegal transaction with my bank, as I lost $599 and I lost my job due to the COVID.I am not sure what people are teaching in that Education Centre, but their sale and management teams are absolutely acting unprofessionally.

Breathe education has been incredible in facilitating my learning over the last few months ! I have learnt so much and how they adapted the teaching for online due to Covid has been incredible, they have been so supportive and I absolutely loved the course and all the people I have met throughout. Thank you :) x

We are proud to be a Mentor studio for Breathe Education. After having gone through both Cert IV and Clinical Diploma, I recognised the exceptional quality of education given to graduates about Movement and Pilates. The teacher trainers of Breath Education are all highly intelligent and experts in their fields, relying on evidence based practice and in turn this provides Breathe graduates with an education that is second to none. Breathe Education's strength lies in their ability to create Community connections after graduation, continuing the support, empowerment and education of their graduates.
08:11 25 May 20
I keep coming back for Breathe Education courses, having completed the Cert IV Pilates Instructors course, the Anatomy 101 and other short courses and being now enrolled in the Clinical Pilates Diploma. As an experienced teacher I have high standards when it comes to education, and I have to say that Raph and his team do a great job of setting up the learning environment so it is effective and a pleasure to be part of! Online courses that have been developed by necessity this year are also impressive, with plenty of very practical demonstrations, supported by clear explanations and the opportunity for interactivity - thus they are excellent learning tools. Congrats to Raph and each one of your supporting team who have been doing such a great job of engaging with sensible, rational facts supported by relevant and current research and bringing the results to the lucky participants!
05:20 24 May 20
My time learning at Breathe Education has been one of the most positive experiences of my life. What I value the most is that once you complete your training you're still very much apart of the Breathe community & it's that connection to your peers & teachers that is priceless. Thankyou Breathe Education! You guys changed my life!!

I was looking to gain a deeper understanding of anatomy so when I saw the course, Intro to Anatomy Physiology and Biomechanics, I thought I would try it. The weekly webinars are very educational along with the supporting materials that Raphael provides. I am a very tactile learner so I was apprehensive of doing an online class but Raphael has brought out his skeleton to demonstrate different certain points and again his powerpoint is simplistic. Thank you Raphael for providing this course.
06:29 18 May 20
A wonderful online course, giving students an opportunity to brush up on previous knowledge as well as learning lots of new interesting stuff! Raph Explains key scientific findings and shares his knowledge on biomechanics and anatomy in a way that is accessible for everyone :) Highly recommend :)

I completed a Clinical Pilates Diploma with Breathe Education. Raphael and his team are very generous, selfless and supportive while sharing their vast knowledge and experience. I have done many courses during my Pilates career but none compares to my experience with Breathe! The quality of the material and the skilful way it is presented made it easy to apply in my work. Excellent value for money! I would highly recommend Breathe Education; their continual support of their students is just admirable. Maja Whitworth

Thank you so much breath education for your amazing courses. I’m very happy I joined in. Raphael is a great educator, the way he explains everything makes it so easy to understand. I have done many pilates courses in other countries, but this one has been amazing. Thank you so much!

While I have only just started my Cert IV, I am already so impressed with the organisation of the company, the anatomy knowledge from Raphael has been mind blowing. I studied anatomy as a part of my last degree and I have learnt way more from the way he teaches. The trainer led classes have been fantastic as well, the trainers are so super supportive and knowledgable.Looking forward to the next few monthsTegan
01:29 12 May 20
I recently singed up to a 6 week anatomy course held through Breathe Education. I thought the content was great, they didn't overload you with too much information and they left a decent amount of time to ask questions. Would definitely recommend Breathe to others.
23:05 11 May 20
Could not recommend more - Raphael and team went full steam ahead to bring Pilates teachers and anyone who wanted to join an in-depth anatomy course. It was so well planned, laid out, and very welcoming.
05:52 11 May 20
I studied to become a Pilates Instructor with Breathe Education over 5 years ago now. My learning experience then was one I will never forget, the educators were so engaging and knowledgeable. The wonderful thing about Breathe Education is they don't stop offering assistance and advice once you have completed your course, they are there for you along the way. Since the completion of my course I have done numerous workshops with them and am currently doing a Live course on Zoom, Anatomy, Biomechanics & Physiology (seriously loving it!) which is run by Breathe Founder & CEO Raphael Bender. Raph knows his stuff, his knowledge astounds me, he is right across it all and shares this knowledge with such passion, explains things so succinctly and makes the learning experience such fun, you just want to soak up as much information as you possibly can. Thank you Raph and the team at Breathe Education, it's been and continues to be a blast :-)

I've been working in Fitness for over 30 years including roles as an international trainer and presenter in Group Fitness. I hold a cert IV in fitness, and now a Diploma of Clinical Pilates - as well as a TAE. I'd completed pilates course prior to Breathe, but found Breathe deliver a more "whole - istic" (misspell intended) to pilates. What I love is that Breathe provide the science behind why they teach us the way they do, and show you how to research stuff for yourself. They encourage you to be curious, and to challenge rather than just accept. The level of course information is high, the faciliators professional and so giving of their time. Their courses prepare to you so well for success in many opportunites in the industry. I now work at Physiotherapists doing rehab work, as well as in studios teaching group classes, and my own small group of clients that I train one on one, or in small groups. But, I love that they show they care about you and your success way past completing your courses. I was recently given the opportunity to partake in the new anatomy content - for free as an already qualified Breather - and to be given the chance to upskill by Breathe was invaluable. Anatomy - whilst I love it - is tough to remember when you don't use it all the time, and this refresher and upate was timely and also, helped to geet my creative juices flowing in differnt ways. When people ask me who they should do their pilates course through, I always recommend Breathe.Thank you Raph and all the guys at Breathe.
01:05 10 May 20
I did my Cert IV with Breathe and am now doing the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics course and have absolutely loved it. I appreciate the time and effort that goes into teaching evidence based practice and the instructors are amazing and are always happy to help.
20:08 09 May 20
Raphael Bender's presentation of his Intro to Anatomy Physiology and Bio mechanics has been superb. The information presented is clear, easy-to-understand and Raphael provides an engaging, inter-active learning environment with participants from across the globe. He injects real life examples into his training modules which helps the participant assimilate the information being taught.
19:48 09 May 20
I have been attending the online Intro to Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics online workshop with Breathe Education. I have found the teaching outstanding, Raphaels' knowledge is inspiring and I have gained so much valuable, appropriate and effective information. Highly recommended.
07:14 09 May 20
I took the anatomy course through zoom and it was brilliant. Raphael has a great lecture style and makes the material interesting - not too technical but also not too basic either. He’s also very patient with answering all questions. The ppt slides and session recording are shared with all participants afterwards so if you missed something you can reference back. Highly recommend this course for all fitness professionals.
07:00 09 May 20
Raph, the business CEO, is a down to earth person and his personality and values are reflected in all aspects of the business.The courses are practical with immediate application in the real-life environment while keeping a high standard of the knowledge presented. I have attended different courses through Breathe Education and there is clear evidence of constant renewal and innovation. In-line with the newest scientific discoveries in human movement their courses present up-to-date, curated information.I highly recommend Breathe Education as a leader in Pilates education.
06:46 09 May 20
The Breathe Team is very supportive and encouraging during the course. I love the support, connection and ongoing workshops even after the course completion. Highly recommended.

Great training with lots of science based information presented. Raphael finds a way to present anatomy in a way that is accessible and interesting! Highly recommend!
02:23 09 May 20
It's easy to be overwhelmed by the breadth and depth of anatomy. Yet Raphael makes it accessible, interesting and, dare I say, fun in his Intro to Anatomy course. He is generous and incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring as a standout presenter and expert. Thank you.

As a beginner in the pilates world and looking for a stronger foundation i was able to understand and learn clearly at a achievable pace with Ralph.Reinforcing and learning through his usage of slides, real life body references and the skeleton model was a good balance and I really appreciated the opportunity to take the anatomy course!
