Additional Information

The program content progresses from one module to the next. As a result, modules must be completed in sequential order to make your learning experience complete and meaningful. To fully benefit from the program, it is in your best interest to commit to the entire time frame. If you happen to miss an hour or more, our Teacher Training Coordinator will assist you with scheduling a private tutorial to make up the missed hours.

Pilates Level 3: Cadillac, Chair, Springboard & Barrels (270 hours)

Like Level 1 and Level 2, Pilates Level 3: CCSB consists of four modules. The underlying framework builds on functional movement and anatomical relationships in the lumbopelvic complex, the four regions of the spine and the shoulder complex. You learn how to use all four pieces of equipment⎯Cadillac, chair, springboard and barrels⎯for a full range of clients, from post-rehab clients to those looking for athletic fine-tuning. By clustering the different pieces of equipment together, you learn how to determine the best course of action based on the needs of your clients. Case studies test your ability to identify movement issues and decide the best practices to address them. The program focuses on teaching methodologies appropriate for one-on-one sessions and group classes so you can work confidently in both situations.

Learning Objectives

  • Master the complete Pilates repertoire for Cadillac, chair, springboard and barrels
  • Learn exercise modifications and variations for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels
  • Explore advanced protocols for working one-on-one
  • Refine class design practices for the group machine class environment
  • Develop practical applications for functional anatomy related to the lumbopelvic complex, the four regions of the spine and the shoulder complex

Program requirements include:

 

• Pre-requisite: Pilates Level 1: Mat and Pilates Level 2: Reformer

 

• Module 1: Foundations

• Module 2: Intermediate

• Module 3: Advanced

• Module 4: Practical Application


• Practice teaching (minimum 100 hours)

If you complete your practice teaching hours at the Body Harmonics Studios in Toronto, your clients pay a nominal fee of $20 by cash (tax included) per hour session.

If you complete your practice teaching hours elsewhere where you have access to the machines you are responsible to track your teaching hours including sign off by your clients. External session fees are at your own discretion.


• Self-practice (minimum 100 hours)

Self-practice hours can be completed by practicing on the machines on your own or with your peers. Complementary group classes are included as part of your self-practice hours if you are completing your program in Toronto. These classes may be booked on a drop-in basis at our Dupont and Eglinton Studios. If the class you're interested in is full and there is a machine available in the private room, you may practice on your own in there instead.

If the program takes place at an affiliate location, class fees are at the discretion of the facility management.
