Toolbox Reformer Teacher Training Course

Toolbox Pilates is excited to provide a reformer teacher training course for those who wish to become a qualified reformer teacher in the Pilates field.  Our goal here is not just to help participants gain a better understanding of their own practice, but also to allow them to pass on their knowledge to others.

The four full days of reformer training and lectures include the history of Pilates, understanding of the Pilates method, anatomy & movement analysis, pathology, Pilates instructor guidelines & ethics, effective teaching & cuing techniques, and first level Pilates reformer exercises. 

Course Pre-requisites

Participants need to have taken at least 50 reformer classes, and have a clear intention and purpose for taking this teacher training course.  Participants are highly recommended to have a basic knowledge of the Pilates method and of anatomy terminology.  Some teaching experience in fitness or bodywork is a plus, but not required.
