What to expect:
 
In this comprehensive teacher training programme, you will learn to teach the classical repertoire as developed by Joseph Pilates. 


You will realise that this original approach always was what is now called funtional training, and finds a scientific base in the current research into fascia, fascial movement and bio tensegrity.

 

This programme is designed to give you an embodied experiential understanding of the repertoire. Teaching Pilates from the basis of this understanding will then come easy.
You will learn the repertoire comprehensively not in modules. 
 
The  Structure and Philosophy of REalEASE Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training


We use Joseph Pilates’ “Return to life” as foundation.


The mat repertoire and his thoughts about movement are set out in this work.


Joseph Pilates’ main principles for his work were: 

  • Whole body movement
  • whole body health 
  • breathing.

We will use the original mat series as guide for the progression of the programme.

Through this you will experience that these exercises are the high end of the Pilates method. All exercises on the apparatus are means to simplify and explain the mat work

 

  • You will discover how the apparatus was developed by Joseph Pilates to help his clients understand their body 
  • You will experience the high functionality of his movements
  • You will understand that the method was developed to ground the body and to rehabilitate dis-functional movement patterns.

You will realise that the method is not a stand-alone fitness programme but a means to an end, so that you and your clients can get on with their chosen challenges in life with a fully able and functional body to support you and them.
 
Pilates is fascial training
 
The fascial net in our body is all encompassing and reacts to outer and inner signals. Through attention and awareness are we able to influence the system. Unfortunate movement patterns dissolve and are replaced by highly efficient new patterns. 
You will discover how to connect into your fascial body; how to move elastic and connected in whole body movement.


Through this you will become true to Joseph Pilates’ tenet:
 
“As much as needed as less as possible”
                                                                                                                  
Fascia holds us together and holds us apart


Our Bio-tensegrity (tension + integrity) built allows for high stability with minimum weight of the bones. Our fascial connective tissue holds us together and apart. This allows every structure the space it needs; none becomes overly strained.
You will discover how tensegrity alters the way we approach movement in expansion rather than contraction.
 
Once you have become truly familiar with this approach, and realised your own potential for change, you will be able to teach all your clients enabling them to approach everything with ease, elasticity and resilience.

Colleagues have been coming to us for years to seek training:

“Pilates training with Joachim does me a lot of good. Joachim’s teaching is precise, sympathetic and thoughtful. I always feel safe and that I am in good hands. Joachim is always able to answer my questions about anatomy and movement and explain the concepts really well. His Pilates training benefits me on both a personal level and as a Pilates instructor. Thank you, Joachim!”

A.K.

“My greatest challenge as a physiotherapist was always feeling my way into my patients’ postural and movement patterns. This has become much easier after encountering the CPM concept and learning about myofascial pathways. What is more, Joachim strives to take a holistic approach to understanding people. First and foremost, the aim is to restore lost movement, to find and expand the space for breath and recognise energy channels as they span the whole of the body. However, this often results in changes on a profound personal level too. This is what I particularly value about working with Joachim. He has a very empathetic, sensitive and motivating approach.”
