Our Internationally Recognized & Certified Pilates Teacher Training Courses are led by founder and director Andriesa Verloop. After opening her first Pilates studio in 2008, Andriesa continues to share her passion for this amazing fitness movement through the Pilates Dynamics International Pilates Teacher Training Courses. Her success as a trainer and educator is due to her exposure to various Pilates styles of over 14 years, as well as her intensive training background. Andriesa is assisted by a group of senior trainers with exposure both nationally and internationally, who have qualifications in BA Human Movement Science, Physiotherapy, Personal Training, Professional Dance and Ballet, BHSc Honours Biokenetics, and BA Sports Science Honours. 

Included in the 450 hour Comprehensive Pilates Course is the 100 hour Mat & Small Equipment Course. If you are only interested in signing up for the Mat & Small Equipment Course, that option is also available. The Mat & Small Equipment Teachers Training Course runs in conjunction with the Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training Course. 

These Internationally Recognized & Certified Pilates Teacher Training programs were created and structured in such a way as to ensure that all of our students get the highest qualifications possible to become a top-notch Pilates Instructor with confident and unique teaching styles.

Students will have access our studio for practice for a period of 3 to 5 months, depending on the course selected.
