Pilates Instructor Courses

  • Pilates Instructor

  • Level 3


Pilates is a popular training form because it helps the body become more balanced and flexible and it also helps with overall conditioning and endurance. Throughout this course, students will learn how to deliver a correct Pilates mat based session to their clients.

Who is it for?

The Pilates Instructor course is aimed at all individuals aged 16 or over who would like to focus their career on teaching Pilates. In the past we have had a lot of exercise to music instructors that have taken the course in order to help their clients with posture and strength.


Part-time weekend

Part-time study will require a 6-week home study followed by 4 full days of attendance during 2 weekends.


You don’t need to have previous fitness qualifications in order to be eligible for this course but it is required of you to complete the Level 2 and Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology modules as part of this course.


  • Anatomy and physiology for exercise and health
  • Supporting clients during exercise and physical activity
  • Health, safety and welfare in a fitness environment
  • Principles of exercise, fitness and health
  • Principles of Pilates mat work

The Discovery Learning Pilates teacher training course is made of internal and external examination papers, client interview training, coursework and practical observations. There will be at least one assessment for each module with a six-part assessment schedule for module six.

Finally, there is a choice now of submitting a video assessment of practical teaching, in which students film themselves demonstrating Pilates exercises as they would in a Pilates group session and then send it to our assessment board for review OR attending a practical assessment day 4-6 weeks after the course.

What certificates will I receive?

Active IQ Pilates instructor certificate. If the student is a REPs member, the REPs insurance will cover them to teach Pilates.
