The Balanced Body Pilates instructor training program is designed to create thoughtful, creative and successful Pilates teachers. The curriculum emphasizes the principles underlying each exercise. The faculty members have a wide variety of Pilates backgrounds from classical to contemporary to fitness and bring their exceptional depth of experience to the training. The manuals are considered to be some of the best in the industry and for more in depth study, Balanced Body has produced an accompanying DVD for each Mat, Reformer and Apparatus module. The program is designed in modules so you can take your first course now and continue your training next week, next month or next year. Each module is self contained so you can take them as quickly or as slowly as your schedule and budget allow. In addition to the instructor certification program, there are a number of additional modules as well as workshops.
“Good Morning BBU!!
I am proud to say that I passed the BBU Pilates Teacher Comprehensive Exam on Friday night at Movements Afoot!!
I am writing to thank you and everyone at Balanced Body University. The program is excellent. The information is written wonderfully and organized beautifully! I received great support from you, and everyone at BBU whom I contacted, as well as the Customer Service Representatives that I spoke with to order my equipment, DVDs, etc..
So, again, THANK YOU!
I also want everyone at BBU to know what a tremendous asset you have in Lesley Powell as your New York, New York BBU Educator. She is truly a gem. Her knowledge is unparalleled and her feedback is essential. She ran the BBU program seamlessly!!
I am the mother of three small children, I teach classes/train clients in the mornings/evenings/on weekends and care for my family when I’m not “working”. Having the ability to take the modules at Movements Afoot once a month allowed me the time to do everything I needed for BBU, for my family, for my profession and for myself. I love the way Lesley set up the program!
She made me a better teacher AND a better student! During my observations at other studios, I found my appreciation and admiration for Lesley grow. Most Pilates Teachers, while good in their own right, do not have the extensive biomechanics/body-mind knowledge that I have gained from doing my training with Lesley! It takes an incredible teacher to make great teachers and BBU has that in Lesley Powell!
I look forward to doing my continuing education as a Teacher and Student with Lesley and BBU!”
With gratitude, and, Kindest regards,
