Instructor Development Program

Conscious Body Pilates is Seattle’s only studio focused exclusively on one-to-one training. For the past five years, we’ve been helping clients meet their health-related goals and recover from injury with Pilates.

Our clients are happy, motivated and committed. Our private studio is well-equipped and inviting.

In the beginning, we offered mat classes as well as personal training, but soon realized personal training on the equipment was the most effective way to work with our clients. Working one-on-one, allows trainers and clients to develop a relationship essential to identifying and meeting goals. This is entirely different than what mat classes have to offer.

We can help instructors transitioning or wanting to transition into teaching private sessions to do so smoothly and effectively. Our program provides concrete feedback in a safe, warm environment with real clients and experienced instructors.

Additionally, you will gain insight into client attraction and retention, personal training program development, working with and for injuries and how to build trust in a client relationship.

Our 15-hour program includes:
- 10 hours of practical teaching time with real clients
- 2 sessions observing a Senior Instructor
