BE A PILATES INSTRUCTOR
As a STOTT PILATES hosting centre since 2008, Pilatique has established itself as the island city’s premier Pilates training centre for STOTT PILATES, recognised by American Council of Exercise (ACE), Can-Fit-Pro and the College of Massage Therapy of Ontario, as a continuing education provider.
Pilatique’s STOTT PILATES instructor training courses have a very systematic structure to build a strong foundation for becoming a successful Pilates instructor.
Courses are broken down into Essential, Intermediate and Advanced levels to allow safe, efficient progress for hopeful Pilates instructors to earn a Pilates certification and learn how to help clients build strength and stability in the joints and enhance agility of movement.

1.8 STOTT PILATES
We offer a wide range of STOTT PILATES workshops (both on schedule and ad-hoc on request). These help to keep students updated on the latest development in movement studies and provide more programming ideas to current instructors. Since all workshops are open to both instructors and regular Pilates practitioners, they also serve as good opportunities for non-instructors to learn about the STOTT PILATES method, at the same time enjoy a good workout session.
