Sunset Pilates Bali offers high quality, boutique teacher trainings that emphasise the classical method, which seeks to preserve Joseph Pilates’ original techniques and intent. Though the classical method is undeniably important, we acknowledge that much has changed since Pilates’ passing, and our training programs reflect this by incorporating the latest research in the field of movement mechanics, as well as keeping up with current fitness trends, making our trainees more marketable in a competitive industry. Both of our programs strongly emphasise the importance of fundamental/foundational movements as being the basis for aligning the body, creating a strong mind-body connection, and preventing injury.
Our Master Teachers come from strong backgrounds, and have decades of teaching experience between them. Our six month program is taught every year by Master Teacher Nancy Wuisan, and the immersive one month program is taught three times per year by Master Teacher Saria Bartholomew. Both programs produce highly skilled and capable trainers that go on to teach in studios around the world.
Though an NPCP certification (formerly known as a PMA certification) is not required to build a successful career in teaching, both programs help prepare graduates to sit for the exam. Please see the FAQ page under the Immersive One Month Training program for more information about the NPCP exam and eligibility requirements.
Sunset Pilates is excited to offer a comprehensive 4 week Mat + Reformer Teacher Training Program. This is a unique opportunity for students to immerse themselves in a quality educational experience while enjoying the iconic natural beauty and rich culture that Bali has to offer.
Mat and Reformer are the most popular apparatuses in the Pilates industry today, and knowledgeable instructors are in high demand. This program prepares students for success in a rapidly growing industry by teaching them how to proficiently execute the exercises in their own bodies, and by helping them develop the skills needed to effectively instruct others in the Pilates method.
