Two paths with endless possibilities. Learn about the structure, requirements, benefits, success stories and apprenticeship experience of each. Get started today.

Our Approach

We’re traditional. And Progressive.

Since the start of our training programs 10 years ago we’ve provided students with an unsurpassed learning framework. This blueprint simplifies the learning experience and allows students to understand the classical Pilates system, session design and integration, and how to deliver it. Our difference is in the delivery. Students develop a strong foundation that includes a critical eye toward technique, how to modify for injuries and special cases, how to see, communicate and make corrections, and the mechanics of the human body through our Anatomy in Clay workshops. Our programs demand critical thought, creative explorations, “an eye toward why,” and individual breakthroughs of confidence and realizations as a teacher. There is that “it” factor to a CPNYC trained instructor. Or so we’ve been told by top studios around the world that have hired our graduates. An online education platform to keep things interactive anytime, anywhere? Online manuals with video demo’s? Anatomy in Clay? We have vision and create teachers that do too.

I was tired of the corporate lifestyle and was looking for a career that resonated with who I am. I bonded so much with my class and the studio became a second home to me – the teachers, clients – everyone! It was a real educational community.
