PSC Teacher Training

The Cutting Edge Approach to Pilates Education

Pilates South Austin is excited to offer the Pilates Sports Center Teacher Training Program! Taught by Master Teachers Nikki Alstedter and Lora Pavilack, Pilates Sports Center Teacher Training produces some of the most skilled and capable trainers in the country. PSC teaches a contemporary approach to the original exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s: one that preserves the essence of the original technique but incorporates today’s knowledge and principals.

What makes PSC program so unique?

Students will learn the Classical and Progressive approach to Pilates all in one program using a beautiful, organized photographic manual.  This program explores the history and philosophy of the Pilates Method and prepares the student with an in depth foundation of body assessment and teaching skills.   Our instructors are successful, sought after and return to us for continued workshops year after year.

Meeting only the highest standards in Pilates education and programming, we’ve created a more contemporary and comprehensive approach to Pilates teacher training that emphasizes methodology and functionality. Students will learn the authentic exercise method in a unique way that preserves the essence of the original technique but incorporates today’s modern biomechanical knowledge and exercise science principals.

This 450-hour accelerated full-course program is offered in a modular format to give you the flexibility to complete the program as quickly or as slowly as your schedule and budget allows. In addition, class sizes are purposely kept small to ensure that every student receives a high level of attention and one-on-one contact.
