Reformer Pilates was once the realm of rehab-focused clinical sessions (necessary but a touch boring – don’t tell!). Now in-demand everywhere from boutique studios to big name gyms, Reformer Pilates has become more dynamic, creative, and fitness-focused. Teachers need to be equipped to teach and manage different levels and needs within a group class. Barre Body is Australia’s industry leader when it comes to boutique fitness, and we know what it takes to deliver exceptional group classes. That’s why our Reformer course teaches you not just the repertoire, but how to teach it. We’ll show you how to confidently design flowing, fun Reformer classes that transition seamlessly (keeping those spring changes to a minimum) while offering a great workout no matter who’s in your class.

Barre Body Training was a fantastic way for me study my Pilates Mat Teacher Training online course. The course content was amazing with lots of highly experienced Pilates teachers always on hand to answer queries/questions. Often studying online can be difficult but the video content was so helpful. I felt thoroughly supported throughout my course. I’ve already signed up for a Barre Body online short course before taking on the online Reformer Teachers course later in the year. Thank you to Barre Body for a great training experience!


BARRE BODY! I made no mistake in choosing Barre Body because, honestly, the course was a perfect balance of everything. The online Reformer Pilates course was great. The best thing about online is that I was able to complete it in my own time! From Marium’s talks to the not so boring anatomy to the exercises, the overall course content as a whole was fabulous:) Well structured throughout. I was so satisfied with Barre Body that I’m now currently doing Pre & Post Natal short course, and I am looking forward to the Stretch short course, which is next!


Such an amazing training company! I have successfully been able to grow my Pilates knowledge and gain so much insight about the body, anatomy and movement. Completing my MAT and REFORMER training online has allowed me to study in my own personal time, have effective resources and have teachers available when I need that extra help! I’ve also loved joining the barre body online community, joining people of similar interests and learning through new found friends. I can’t recommend Barre Body enough!
