Why Train Classical?

The life’s work of Joseph Pilates cannot be fast tracked, and the responsibility we all share in promoting and preserving his legacy is profound. As a graduate of Real Pilates Teacher Training (RPTT), you will become a part of this legacy.

“The teacher training pushed me out of my comfort zone, as I was expected to start teaching from day one. I have always been a shy person who is reluctant to come under the spotlight unless it’s absolutely necessary. Beyond my expectations, the programme helped me conquer my biggest fear through the weekly and teaching hour requirements. With the guidance and mentorship from both RPTT and Flex team, I found my teaching voice and confidence. Also, the programme brought my own Pilates practice to the next level and I am happy to see the positive changes in my body.”
