Contact Hours: 32 Hours (4 Days) Non Contact Hours: 30 hours consisting of 15 hours observation and 15 hours practical.
Many of our graduates have chosen to become a Pilates Instructor to enhance their passion for fitness, embark on a new career or supplement their current income. We strongly recommend that before commencing your VIVA course that participate in a minimum of 10 Pilates classes prior to your course. Knowing Pilates in your own body will not only give you an appreciation of the method, it will also help you teach it to your clients.
VIVA Pilates Courses cost $1297. Early bird discounts do apply so be sure to get in touch with us today to learn more about how you can save! Flexible payment methods of up to 16 weeks are also available.
On-Course Theory Exam: The written exam consists of multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank or matching type questions, and muscle identification questions. It will take you approximately 2-3 hours to complete the exam. Your results for your theory exam will be emailed to you within 10 days of completing your course.
Practical Exam: You will be required to demonstrate an exercise to your course group at the end of day 3. Post Course video submission of 30 Minute Class required. Once your observation and practical logs are complete please email a copy to [email protected]. Your Pilates Certificate will be issued within a 2 week period.
It is strongly advised that make-up hours are done as soon as possible after they are missed – especially if it occurs in the middle of a course. This allows students to cover the missed material prior to returning to the course. Please note that this is done in private review at the student’s expense. Students have six months to make up any hours missed. If they exceed this timeline, the course is forfeited and the entire course must be retaken in order to examine and certify.
Upon successful completion of the exam, students are considered certified instructors from their exam date.
Observation hours can be logged during or after the course and can be accrued by watching a VIVA Instructor at any of our locations, free of charge.
Students must be at least 18 years of age to participate in a VIVA Pilates course.
Upon completion of Reformer Level 1, students who pass the course will be eligible to interview for instructor positions at VIVA. The road to starting your Pilates career starts with us. Our aim is to provide all of our trainees with the resources to become highly skilled, successful Pilates instructors before, during and after training with us. We look forward to sharing this journey with you.
AND IT TAKES A COMPREHENSIVE, SUPPORTIVE APPROACH TO UNLEASH IT. VIVA PILATES EDUCATION.
OUR PROGRAM PROVIDES A BALANCED AND THOROUGH BLEND OF THEORY, OBSERVATION AND PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE TO HELP YOU MASTER THE PILATES REPERTOIRE.
Of course you can! The VIVA Pilates course is designed to start from the very beginning. The course is structured to ensure you leave with a full and complete knowledge of the correct postural alignment, abdominal recruitment, safety and communication cues and a deep knowledge of Pilates exercises. Whether the goal is to deepen your own knowledge and juice more from your individual Pilates practice or to explore exciting new opportunities as an instructor, the VIVA Pilates Teacher training will leave you feeling confident and ready to tackle all Pilates endeavours!
While Pilates experience is not essential, it is definitely recommended that you have attended a couple of Matwork and/or Reformer classes so that you know what to expect from the Pilates Methodology. You can feel free to book a class at VIVA here.
Course Cost Inclusions-

In order to be sent your certification, all course participants must do a minimum of 15 Observation Class and 15 Practical Classes. We are happy to support course participants through this process. We also encourage participants to attend classes at studio other then VIVA and this should be negotiated on a case by case basis by the participant.

You will be given the exercises in advance of the practical exam and have the opportunity to prepare for the practical exam the evening before. There will opportunities to practice teach during the course and making the most of these opportunities and getting feedback from fellow participants and your course facilitator will be your best preparation.
