Matwork Teacher Training

2023 Mat Pilates teacher training programs are scheduled in Sydney, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Registrations are open NOW!

Pilates Mat teacher training is the perfect vehicle for learning the principles of the Pilates Method. It is affordable, easy to integrate into different settings, and a great way to introduce people to Pilates. At BASI we regard Pilates Mat Work as the “crown jewel” of Pilates.

The Mat Program provides a thorough education in Pilates Matwork and its infinite applications. It is also the perfect springboard to the Comprehensive Programs that we offer and recognised internationally. The Mat Program is often taught as a part of the Comprehensive Program and is the same curriculum for U.S. and international students.

This program is comprised of 24 hours of lecture, discussion, exercise practice and exercise analysis divided into six modules.
