TRAIN WITH US AND BE A PART OF THE JOSEPH PILATES LINEAGE

The LVP Teacher Training Certification Program

Preparing the 4th Generation of Teachers

 

If you are passionate about Pilates and want to share your enthusiasm with others and help them reach their fitness potential, consider apprenticing with LVP! This spring we launched a comprehensive 600-hour teacher training certification program. Graduates of our program will have the privilege of becoming 4th generation teachers in the Joseph Pilates lineage.

The curriculum is presented over three weekend seminars:

March 2, 3, and 4: The Basic System
June 8, 9, and 10: The Intermediate System
September 14, 15, and 16: The Advanced System

Apprentices enrolled in the LVP Teacher Training program must attend all 3 weekend seminars. After each weekend seminar, apprentices need to log a minimum of 200 hours of:

Observation 
Self-practice
Practice teaching

A written and practical test will be given at the completion of the required 200 hours between seminars. Upon completion of 600 hours apprentices need to successfully pass a final written and practical test to obtain certification.

The LVP Teacher Training Program costs $7,050. A $150 deposit fee, used to reserve your spot in the program, will be deducted from the total cost. Payment can be made in full prior to the start of the program, or in 3 installments of $2300 due before each seminar weekend.

OUR TEACHING APPROACH

The LVP Teacher Training program will prepare apprentices to teach on ALL apparatus at ALL levels. You will learn to develop your eye to spot faulty movement mechanics and know how to address these. You will be equipped to know where to lead your students within the entire system to help with specific issues. You will have access to all of the apparatus in the studio for self-practice and to practice teach fellow apprentices and approved participants. You will come to understand the relationship all the apparatus has to each other and how to make good use of it to get the most out your body, as well as the bodies of your students.

Unlike other Pilates education programs that allow for piece-meal training, or fast-track certifications, the LVP Teacher Training program provides a personal mentor-apprentice style of training. You will learn from Lili herself what she was handed down from her teachers, Brooke Siler and Chris Robinson, who in turn were taught by 1st generation teachers Romana Kryzanowska and Jay Grimes. This intimate approach ensures that a deep understanding of the work is fostered, nurtured, and developed, producing the most competent, knowledgeable and passionate teachers the industry can offer.
