Comprehensive Program Track
As it is essential for Program participants to learn and practice the Fletcher Pilates method and technique in their own bodies before learning to teach the method to others. Applicants are required to complete at least 20 private sessions plus 10 additional hours of classes and the Fletcher Pilates Preparatory Course before entering the Comprehensive Program.
Our Prep Course is designed to give students an overview of the Fletcher Pilates syllabus from a student’s point of view. Based on Ron Fletcher’s philosophy of “knowing movement in the body,” the Prep Course encourages experiencing each piece of movement before entering the Foundational Program to learn to teach it. Structured as a 20-hour program, this is the most efficient and affordable means of reviewing the Fletcher Pilates syllabus.
Students may apply to enter the Fletcher Comprehensive Program while they complete their prerequisite process.
Upon successful completion of the Foundational Program, students receive a Qualified Teacher Certificate and are eligible to seek employment as Pilates teachers in studio, clinic, fitness and other settings.
Upon successful completion of the Professional Program, students receive a Professional Teacher Certificate and are eligible to teach the complete Pilates syllabus.
HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR PREREQUISITE HOURS
The Fletcher Pilates Preparatory Course can be substituted by 20 hours of private sessions or group classes if the Prep Course is unavailable. The full prerequisite student process generally takes three to six months of concentrated study. Prerequisite requirements will be modified for those who have completed another comprehensive Pilates teacher training program.
The Preparatory Course is taught exclusively by our Fletcher Faculty who mentor and prepare students to enter the Comprehensive Program —from application through completion.
