About STOTT PILATES© Certification

STOTT PILATES education is unparalleled in the industry for its thoroughness and quality. Certified instructors complete hundreds of hours of study and pass rigorous written and practical exams.

New instructors begin by completing a university level anatomy course or the STOTT PILATES 30-hour Functional Anatomy Course.

The basic certification program (Level 1) covers the exercise repertoire of the mat, reformer, cadillac, chair and barrels.Level 1 Participants spend more than 300 hours in classroom instruction, observation, practice teaching and personal practice. They learn the STOTT PILATES Five Basic principles; effective communication and observation skills, verbal cuing and imagery for performance enhancement and client motivation; modifications for specific body types, postural issues and conditions; theory and practice of postural analysis; and exercise layering related to effective program design.

Level 2 certification (an additional 50 – 75 hours) covers the advanced exercise repertoire and qualifies instructors to teach every exercise in the STOTT PILATES certification curriculum.

The Injury and Special Populations (24 hours) course teaches instructors to adapt pilates exercises to meet the needs of individuals with bone and/or joint issues and diseases.

The Instructor Trainer Certification is available on an invitation-only basis to exceptional teachers.  STOTT PILATES Instructor trainers are qualified to teach pilates certification programs and workshops.
