The 18 month course offers a minimum of 1,200 hours training through an extensive programme of workshops. Coursework and teaching covers the use of Pilates with different populations, such as the elderly, postnatal and antenatal clients, as well as those with conditions such as osteoporosis, scoliosis and hypermobility.
Course leader Jessica Moolenaar said: “Our training will suit people who want to become teachers and particularly wish to extend their understanding of specialist topics such as somatic patterning, anatomy, physiology and fascial plasticity. There are also specialist lectures, exclusive to the Trinity Laban course, on body reading skills, listening skills and the person-centred therapeutic relationship. All of the teachers certified through our course have found a full-time career, and are now considered to be among the best in the field.”
The course is taught at Laban Pilates, one of the largest studios in the UK, in Trinity Laban’s Faculty of Dance in Deptford. Students have unlimited access to the studio, and are able to work with dancers and performing artists on a daily basis to maximise their developing specialism.
