Pilates Teacher Training

Heather Stevens and her company What the Fitness is available for Pilates Teacher Trainings.  The trainings come in either modular form i.e. 3 month increments for Mat, Reformer, Chair and Cadillac or as one whole training for the entire Pilates Classical Comprehensive Training.  Training can be customized to fit your needs.

Heather has been a Teacher Trainer since 2010 and has been teaching Pilates for over 10 years.  Heather has developed a well thought out Pilates Teacher Training Program that follows the Pilates Classical Repertoire taught by Joe Pilates.  When participants are finished with the program, they will know:

  • The Classical Pilates Repertoire in Mat, Reformer, Chair, Cadillac and Auxillary Equipment
  • Have an understanding of basic anatomy
  • Students that undertake the whole program will be ready to sit for the Pilates Method Alliance test
  • Students will have 200 hours of experience on each piece of equipment.  This includes lessons, observation, and practice teaching/hands on hours.  The total program is 800 hours.
  • Students will be ready to teach Pilates by the end of the training
  • Optional CPR and AED Training can be added to the Teacher Training

Here is what a few of her former students are saying about the program:

“I am proud to say that I had the pleasure of being one of Heather’s 2017
Pilates Reformer training graduates.  She is a gifted teacher who brings a
wide-range of exercise modalities into her breath of knowledge.  She is very
kind and generous with her time and has extreme patience with her students.
I have taken over 1200 hours of Pilate’s apparatus classes with various
teachers over the last three+ years and she, by far, is the best at
communicating what she wants her student to do, feel, and achieve.  I am
honored to have had so much of her valuable time, and would encourage anyone
interested in broadening their Pilates’ practice to spend them with Heather.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, HEATHER!”

“Heather Stevens’ classical Pilates teacher training program is truly empowering. Her teaching style is so inspiring. The combination of hands on training, lecture, book work and self practice truly solidified the material into your mind and body. Heather’s passion for Pilates is contagious – her knowledge, experience and ability to understand the body makes her an excellent teacher. She makes you feel good about your body’s ability and the progress you are making. By the end of the training I felt ready to teach and was able to get a job at a local Pilates studio. It was a wonderful experience!”

 “I am so grateful for the journey of transformation I experienced through my Pilates Teacher Training with Heather Stevens. I gained invaluable and comprehensive knowledge and insight of the history and fundamentals of Pilates, all levels of The Classical Pilates Reformer exercises and sequences and how to teach them!

Heather went out of her way to work with each of us individually and as a group and to help us understand the equipment and perform the Classical exercises with awareness and grace.

It was fun to make new friends and practice teaching and to watch the transformation in my body and mind as the course progressed! I have started teaching and am loving it!

Heather is professional, inspiring and supportive and I highly recommend her as a teacher to Pilates enthusiasts!”

I was so fortunate to attend the Pilates Certification course hosted by The Bay Club and taught by Heather Stevens and Cyndi Moriatis. This was the second certification program that I attended. The course included the Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and a few other auxiliary pieces. It took one year but it was so worth it. After completing this course with Heather and Cyndi,  I came out of it with a better understanding and more knowledge than the previous Pilates course. I am grateful for their patience, experience  and expertise.

I just completed my Pilates Teaching Certification at Bay Club and was very honored to be taught by Heather Stevens and Cyndi Moraitis. It was a very informative program that was delivered with much style, and at times with humor mixed with sincerity that only Heather and Cyndi can deliver.
I loved every moment and feel very lucky to share the knowlege that Heather and Cyndi have to offer. I highly recommend the entire program that includes the Mat, Reformer, Cadillac and Chair. As a Personal Fitness Trainer, Pilates will always be a part of my teaching.
All my clients are very excited to explore Pilates and experience its benefits . Thank you Heather and Cyndi for the opportunity to be in your program. I miss you!
