The APEI Teacher’s Classical System Program is a series of seminars over 4 weekends for comprehensively trained teachers with at least 3 years teaching experience who are interested in learning the Classical Pilates method of teaching.

The Classical Pilates System Program is not a certification or bridging program so apprentice hours are not required. A Certificate of Completion will be given to those completing the program. The Classical Pilates System Program is limited to a small group of Certified Instructors, so there will be time to discuss new effective techniques to work with your clients.


THE CLASSICAL PILATES SYSTEM: Students will learn about the Classical Pilates system. There is a unique connection between exercise on the mat, reformer, chairs, barrels, and other Pilates apparatus. Students will learn which exercise on which piece of apparatus is best suited to their clients and how to adapt and or choose specific exercises using the “System” for clients with imbalances and/or pathologies.

REPERTOIRE: Classical Pilates is not “just a series of choreographed exercises”. Students will learn the classical repertoire from basic to advanced level on all apparatus and learn the connections between all the Pilates apparatus such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Spine Corrector, Small Barrel, Ladder Barrel, Pedi Pole, Wunda Chair, Electric Chair and Baby Chair.

TECHNIQUE: While a number of exercises in the Pilates repertoire are familiar to contemporary teachers, the technique of execution is distinctly different.

COMMUNICATION: The art of teaching Pilates is to connect with clients in ways that are meaningful to them. Pilates teachers need multi-layered ways of communicating with clients in a group or private setting.

CUEING: During this program, you will explore cueing using imagery, through directional energy and flow, how much cueing is too much? Visual cueing for clients who have hearing or language challenges.
