Pilates Matwork Course:

Sep 29th to Nov 18th

We are very excited to be taking applications for 15  trainees on our Pilates Matwork  course this coming September 2018.
 

Here's everything you need to know

Ritual’s Pilates Matwork course runs over 8 weekends from 29th September - 18th November.

Over the course of the 8 weeks participants will undertake comprehensive training in the Pilates method and come out the other end as knowledgeable and confident Pilates practitioners and instructors able to teach dynamic group mat classes. During the 8 week course participants will learn everything from the cores and principles of the Pilates method, functional anatomy and physiology, intelligent exercise sequencing, technique, verbal and tactile cueing, breathwork, meditation, business & entrepreneurship, WHS, and public speaking.

Furthermore, if you have practiced at Ritual before you will probably be aware that we have strong values with respect to inclusivity and community. At Ritual we are focused on empowering people through our classes and emphasise the importance of approaching health from more than just a physical level. As such all of our trainees will not only receive extensive training in the Pilates method, they will also undergo training in mediation and learn how to offer holistic and inclusive Pilates classes that leave their students feeling strong and empowered
