Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts as soon as you enrol and is a completely self-paced online course.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course forever! So you can come back and refresh your knowledge at any time.
Will I learn everything I need to know to teach pre and post natal classes?
Yes, this course delivers so much information about teaching barre, mat Pilates and reformer Pilates classes to pregnant clients and new mums. You can apply the information learnt in the course to modify exercises in group classes or 1:1 classes and specifically tailor movements to the needs of mums and mums-to-be.
What if I only teach barre and not Pilates (or vice-versa)?
Enrolling in this course is like getting three courses in one. Mat Pilates, barre and reformer Pilates are all covered in depth. If you don't teach all of the formats we cover you can just take what you need and skip the modules that don't relate to you. It also means that if you add extra class styles to your teaching repertoire in the future, you already have this knowledge up your sleeve.
What support will I get while I'm studying?
You can contact us anytime via email or you can simply comment at the bottom of any of the lectures to ask a question and a senior trainer will respond to you with a day or two (sometimes within minutes). We are available to support you every step of the way.
