Comprehensive REAL Pilates Teacher Training Program at Flex Studio


If you are searching for the perfect time and place to pursue your continuing Pilates education, you’ve found it!

Flex is proud to announce its affiliation with REAL Pilates in New York as a Host Site for Teacher Training. REAL Pilates honours the legacy of Romana Kryzanowska and training is rooted in the authentic Classical method, as learned by Alycea Ungaro.

Next Cycle Starts March 2021!

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.”


Amber Tsui, 2020 Graduate of the Real Pilates New York Teacher Training Programme

REAL Pilates Teacher Training Program

RPTT teaches Classical sequencing and repertoire, as well as the ability to “think” about the moving body in front of you and deliver the most effective and rewarding sessions for Pilates students. The result is success as a professional Pilates instructor.
