We believe in teaching our teachers to have a strong practical foundation to be an effective teacher to all their students.

After many years of teaching and mentoring Pilates instructors, we found that the new teachers would come in with a certain level of knowledge, but often found it difficult to apply this knowledge, how to effectively instruct and modify the exercises for each person or have knowledge of the body and biomechanics.

We believe in teaching the body that is in front of us, and thus harnessed our experience in delivering Pilates Teacher Training programs and created the BodyTree Academy Pilates Teacher Trainings to provide a strong foundation for all our Teacher Trainees to be effective teachers upon graduating.

Over 60 years combined teaching experience

As a team, the BTA faculty has over 60 years of teaching experience and is fully Pilates Method Alliance certified.

Q4. How is the BTA Pilates Matwork Teacher Certification unique? 

The BTA believes in teaching excellently. 

We want to help you help others move well and with ease. 

The BTA Approach is a client-centric approach. We believe in teaching the bodies (clients) presented, as opposed to mindlessly applying a fixed sequence of exercises to any client.

During the TT, you will learn a critical thinking process. This process is imperative for you to teach a class that is relevant, meaningful and effective for your clients

You will understand and learn how to do each Matwork exercise well and what each exercise’s primary intention is. But more importantly, you will:

- Learn how to look and “read” a body (your clients’)

- Make informed judgements about what you see

- Know what you can do to address the issues e.g. a Release, Stretch, Activation, Modification/Progression etc 

You will also learn about class design and class programming so that your clients can benefit maximally from your Pilates Matwork classes. 

This solid foundation in the BTA Mat TT is the prerequisite for the BTA Compre TT and the BTA Slider & Tubing™ TT.

Q5. Entrance Evaluation Test

BTA also accepts students who have consistent personal practices and display a certain level of understanding the Matwork or physical movement in their own bodies. 

This is a 55-minute one-on-one session (SGD250) with a BTA Founder or Educator to assess your readiness to enter the Pilates Matwork Teacher Certification. You will be guided through selected pieces during the session. Time will be allocated to discuss if you are ready and areas that you need to work on, if any.
