Pyro Pilates Teacher Training

Saturday and Sunday, April 7-8

What is pyroPILATES?

PyroPILATES is a pilates based, low impact training system that combines deep core strengthening along with cardiovascularly challenging High Intensity Interval Training for an intense, fun workout that increases strength, stamina, flexibility and quality of life. PyroPILATES classes are ideally conducted in a heated room (100-105 degrees Fahrenheit) with 30-40% humidity.

PyroPILATES targets the total body. Results can be seen and felt almost immediately, especially in combination with proper nutrition.

The class is fun and fast paced, while simultaneously focusing on body awareness and muscular control. Students enjoy the familiar class format each time they attend but never tire of the series because no two classes are exactly alike.Individuals use their own body weight as resistance rather than weights or props, helping to promote bone density and lean muscle mass. 

This training will be let by Missy Jones, E-RYT, Certified Bikram Yoga Teacher and Founder of Pyro Pilates. The multi-day pyroPILATES training course is comprehensive, providing trainees with information not only on the exercises themselves, but how to effectively teach them. In addition, trainees will be given information on how to modify exercises for beginners and special populations and how to progress exercises for advanced students. The planned course of study includes learning about basic pilates movements and theory, HIIT, anatomy, as well as best practices of teaching and effective teaching techniques. The weekend course is very hands-on with daily workouts and drills. At the end of the training, trainees will be required to complete a performance evaluation as well as a written exam in order to be certified as a pyroPILATES instructor.  Investment is $750.  REGISTER HERE
