The BodyTree Academy Difference.

 BodyTree Academy’s Comprehensive Teacher graduates are well sought after in the region.

BodyTree Academy believes in teaching excellently and we want to help you help others move well and with ease.

The heart of the Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Program is in its client-centric approach. You will learn to teaching the bodies (clients) presented, as opposed to mindlessly applying a fixed sequence of exercises to any client.

Starting from the Pilates Matwork Teacher Certification, the focus is on the process of:

– assessing your client when they are moving
– making critical judgements about their strengths, challenges and imbalances
– deciding what your client needs
– understanding which pieces on which Pilates apparatus is the most relevant to your client at every stage of his/her practice
– understanding the intention of each Pilates movement on each apparatus so that the benefits of the exercise can be experienced by the client through relevant verbal and tactile cues
– managing client’s expectations and goal setting

Being comprehensive certified by BodyTree Academy means:

1. You have completed all Prehab Trainer Modules (which are the pre-requisites)

2. You have completed and passed the Pilates Matwork Teacher Training Certification

3. You have completed all BTA Apparatus Training: Spine Corrector Teacher Certification, Reformer Teacher Certification and Studio Teacher Certification
