The RedBird Pilates Teacher Training Program (RBTT) is a year-long Pilates certification spread across 5 weekends. Each weekend includes detailed study in the anatomy of joint structure as well as extensive review of the skeletal and muscular systems.
The Pilates Mat and Apparatus repertoire is studied as follows:
• Weekend One – Contemporary Mat
• Weekend Two – Continuation of Mat
• Weekend Three – Reformer
• Weekend Four – Cadillac / Tower
• Weekend Five – Wunda/Exo Chair, Ladder Barrel and Step-Ladder
RedBird prepares students to take the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Pilates certification exam to nationally certify our instructors. PMA requires 450 hours in observation, teaching and class participation prior to testing for Pilates certification. All hours may be accrued at RedBird. RBTT includes a free membership to RedBird throughout the year-long program (a $2,110 savings), saving students a great deal of money that would be spent paying studios for observation and practice time. RBTT includes a 10-week Pilates Equipment Series, which assists students in learning all of the equipment (a $375 value). It also includes eight team teach hours for Pilates mat and a 10-week Pilates equipment team teach opportunity.
The weekend intensive program includes the five weekends of study, a practical and written mid-term and final, and 10 Pilates mat classes.
Both programs include a lecture manual and four exercise workbooks containing all of the Pilates repertoire. We recommend a minimum of 20 Pilates mat and equipment classes prior to embarking on Pilates certification.
For more information or to reserve your place in the 2017 training please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Although the RedBird philosophy is to hire from within to ensure all our teachers represent the RedBird method, RBTT is committed to producing excellent, employable teachers for our community and beyond. RB teachers have gone on to create meaningful employment throughout Austin, in other states and even abroad. Participating in the RBTT program does not ensure employment as a RedBird instructor, but completing the RBTT is a requirement to be hired at RedBird.
Refund Policy: All RBTT program fees are non-refundable. If for some reason you cannot finish training, all program fees can be redeemed in a subsequent training or for RedBird services.
