UWM Pilates Certificate prepares students to teach Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Pilates Mat and Equipment and develops a substantial, scientific basis for movement analysis through the rigorous study of Anatomy and Kinesiology.
The Pilates Certificate combines the science and art of the modality. Through the application of theoretical concepts, anatomical understanding of body mechanics, as well as a deep acquaintance with the teachings of the Joseph Pilates method, students will learn teaching strategies to advance their own individual practice, and most importantly that of their future clients. Courses will consist of lectures, discussions, practice teaching and mentorship as students begin the process of teaching Pilates.
A minimum GPA of 3.0 in all coursework is required to successfully complete the certificate. Students may not count any coursework that is taken as audit or pass/fail.
