“When I started this course I really wasn’t sure I’d be able to teach Pilates at all. There was so much to learn and remember and then having to stand up in front of everyone and actually teach was very daunting.
Even as I was going to my third weekend of the course I still didn’t feel confident that I would be able to.
But that third weekend was a game-changer for me. Lots of different exercises like ‘defend your position’ where we had to confidently explain why we did something a certain way or cueing an exercise and my fellow course mates did it all ‘wrong’ so I had to correct them. These were so useful and when Tanja asked me on the last day to describe how I felt with one word I said CONFIDENT
Both Tanja and Paul are excellent teachers and they make you feel so good about becoming a teacher yourself and I would recommend their teaching course to anyone who wants to become a GOOD Pilates teacher
Many thanks to both Tanja and Paul “
“In the beginning, although I really wanted to do my teacher training, I did have some reservations. I’ve done Pilates for a few years, but there are still things I can’t do (not sure I will ever be able to do them) and my core and flexibility are not as good as I would like.
So one of my biggest reservations was that I thought “how can I teach if I can’t do the moves” ?!
But Tanja put my mind at rest and was encouraging and as she says ‘Usain Bolt’s coach can’t run as fast as him!’ Which when I thought about it properly made sense so I went for it!!
I looked at a couple of training venues but I chose Elite as it seemed a lot more personal. They offered more than the basic course and weren’t about the hard aggressive sell like the other company I had contacted. It seemed more about helping you as a teacher rather than take your money, here are the moves now off you go!
The course was really well taught and very informative, not just learning the moves but teaching us alternatives and what to look out for as well as learning which muscles are used.
There is also a catalogue of online materials to refer back to whenever you need it even after the course has finished which I don’t think anywhere else offers.
Tanja and Paul are very supportive and happy to help with any issues. We had another lockdown in between our weekends so our second half of the course was delayed, but they worked around this and sent supportive messages and emails.
They were very accommodating and flexible with finishing the course as a few of us wanted to finish before Christmas and some wanted to defer until the new year. They worked out some weekends that would suit everyone so those of us that wanted to qualify before Christmas were able to.
I don’t think other training facilities would be quite as flexible – they were happy to work around us rather than the other way around!
As strange as it may sound the best part of the course for me was getting through my practical assessment. I was very unsure of myself and lacking in confidence for the first half of the course but by the time it came to the assessment part I felt a lot better about what I could do (even though I was a bag of jelly for the whole hour ).
It felt so good teaching a class. I think that is down to how well the course is taught and the teaching practice we are able to do.
I think it took the time off, in between the sets of weekends, to process everything we had learned. The first 2 weekends are very full-on and it’s a lot to take in – I found it quite overwhelming to start with.
Although when you have that time to think about everything you have learned you realise that you have taken in more than you think and all the extra teaching practice given at the studio helps massively (even though it’s nerve-wracking at the time )!!!!
I can’t wait to start teaching my own classes now!
When I decided to do my teacher training, I did a Google search of Pilates instructor training and Elite came up on the results. I had a look at all of the options available and thought that Elite was exactly what I wanted – it wasn’t a big corporate gym and looked like an open and friendly place where the teaching would be more personable.
After my initial query with Tanja and speaking with her over email, I knew it was the right decision.
I did have reservations when I started looking at different schools. I was worried about ending up in a huge group of people and feeling a bit overwhelmed and intimidated. I didn’t want to complete the qualification with a big, corporate gym where I would just get completely lost.
The course was brilliant, I had so much fun! The group were lovely and Tanja & Paul made the course fun and we had a lot of laughs. The different learning and teaching techniques were really well thought out to ensure that we got the most out of the experience and we could ask as many questions as we wanted.
It can be a lot to take in and it was tiring by the end of the day, but I came away from each day feeling like I had learned a lot and was excited to go back.
The extra materials that you receive are amazing and Tanja & Paul put in so much work to ensure you have everything you need – A&P videos, templates, books! It is so much more than a Pilates instructor qualification and choosing Elite was the best decision I could have made.
For me, the best part of the course was obviously passing my assessment! . But I enjoyed the humour that was brought into the learning, especially the race to do all the classical moves as quickly as possible (and faster than the previous group!).”
I Passed my Level 3 Diploma – with Elite Pilates!
I had been practicing and enjoying the benefits of Pilates for about 8 years when I thought about learning to teach it myself. I was really worried that I would struggle with the academic side but the online learning package was really helpful and Tanja and Paul were very supportive. Tanja is an excellent teacher of Pilates and Paul has a very thorough knowledge of the body and how it works.
I now run my own business teaching Pilates – it’s a great way to earn a living and it is gratifying to see others benefit from it.
