Body Harmonics Teacher Training is about you and your success. Every part of our curriculum from technical know-how to exercise analysis, to teaching methodology and the best business practices is designed to build your confidence, competence and commitment. We help you own your scope of practice.
Pilates Teacher Training
Body Harmonic's Director of Education, Margot McKinnon, M. Ed., specializes in curriculum development. Every step of our training has been designed to develop your knowledge and skills systematically, with all learning styles in mind. Science-driven, interactive and applied learning leaves you with tools at your fingertips.
We’re here to help you reach your potential, to coach you, cheerlead and challenge you to become your best. Most importantly, we are here to recognize and celebrate every one of your successes. We often joke that what you learn at Body Harmonics is to think in shades of grey, and to marvel at everyone’s unique patterns of movement, rather than trying to change them.

BODY HARMONICS’ CONTINUING EDUCATION
Over the last 17 years Body Harmonics’ have created a roster of nearly 50 continuing education workshops that range in levels and topics. This body of work was born from teachers and other professionals asking for guidance about how to proceed with proven strategies to help people move better and safer.
You can attend any of our continuing education workshops based on your interests and needs. No previous Pilates experience is required.
After attending a workshop, you receive a certificate of completion. You are welcome to repeat any workshop at 50% of the regular tuition cost.
We know that moving with integrity and connectedness takes many twists and turns. To be truly effective, you need to hear it, see it and do it for a concept to stick. What you learn has to have immediate relevance. You also need a safe environment to be able to say “I don’t get it”, “I don’t know what to do” or “I need help figuring this out”. Our continuing education is designed to meet all these concerns.
