Dear Friends,

I am so excited to announce that we are bringing The Vertical Workshop Pilates Teacher Training program to Whole Living Pilates starting in August of 2019!

What makes TVW Pilates Teacher Training (PTT) different?
TVW PTT is classical.
The program consists only of Joseph Pilates’ exercises, the order in which he intended with the focus and philosophy he desired…
TVW PTT adds modern biomechanics and exceptional teaching tools bringing you the most well-rounded, useful and respected education in the Pilates world.

We will be offering both a Comprehensive Program (for new Pilates Instructors)  and a Bridge program for current Pilates Instructors looking to learn the TVW method of teaching classical Pilates. 

After working with Shari for over 14 years, it’s a dream come true to bring her program to Colorado starting with Whole Living Pilates. Shari Berkowitz is a biomechanist, ergonomist, trainer and Pilates Teacher of Teachers. The Vertical Workshop is the leading Pilates Teacher education provider in the world. 

Just last month, Tammy Awtry and I began our training to become Teacher Trainers for The Vertical Workshop in order to bring this incredible program to Colorado Springs. Shari, Tammy and I will all be teaching different seminars throughout our first program.

Shari and I have also been working hard behind the scenes to submit our application to the Division of Private Occupational Schools with the State of Colorado. Our application was accepted just last week and we received permission to start getting the word out about our training. This is a huge deal since so many Teacher Training programs in CO are not in compliance. We wanted to make sure to provide this to our students and give them peace of mind that our program will not be shut down due to non-compliance. We are currently waiting for our full approval with CO to go through sometime in May or June at the latest. 

So what are the details you ask….

The Vertical Workshop Pilates Teacher Training Comprehensive Program will consist of 5 seminars and 600 Teacher Training hours consisting of observation, self-practice and student teaching. Weekly in-studio meetings and exams will also be a part of our work. The Bridge program will consist of 5 seminars, weekly meetings and exams.

Here are the dates for our first training below:
