Polestar’s Gateway for Pilates Course is a fantastic opportunity to take your passion for Pilates one step further. Learn what is involved in teaching Pilates either to just enhance your own knowledge, or to use it to begin a career teaching Pilates.

Gain a deeper understanding of the Pilates method, learn selected Pilates mat exercises, and walk away with the practical skills to apply correct form and sequencing. Gateway will enhance your understanding of biomechanics and common movement pathologies to help keep your clients safe from injury.

This course will combine our training in London with a satellite group of students in Cirencester. The course will be led from London with our educator Bethia and our Polestar mentor Becky will assist the students in Cirencester.

We will have screens up in both studios. Our educator in London, Bethia, will lead the course and Becky, our Polestar mentor in Cirencester, will demonstrate the exercises for our students there as Bethia teaches them in London. You will then have the opportunity to practice the exercises within your own small group under the guidance of our education teams in each location.

We have taught other courses in this manner and it is working really well. Our education team are all highly experienced and the benefit that you will receive is having a very high ratio of students to teachers meaning that you will all receive a very high quality training experience.
