Pilates Teacher Training

Saskatoon Pilates Centre is proud to be the exclusive Canadian Teacher Training Centre for Core Dynamics since 2017. Recognized by the Pilates Method Alliance, our teacher trainees are eligible for certification as a National Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT).

The Core Dynamics Pilates Teacher Training Program places its focus on developing trainees to embody the Pilates method, understand human movement as well to teach the Pilates method correctly to a wide variety of clientele versus just teaching the exercises or leading classes. Core Dynamics offers a unique ‘boutique’ program based on historical Pilates, with small class size, individual attention, mentorship experiences and a select group of highly qualified educators and affiliates. Core Dynamics is the approach to Pilates teaching that was created by Eve Gentry and developed by Michele Larsson.
