Put simply, Pilates is our passion. The precise physiology combined with the flowing, fun and pacey style we’re known for? It’s a recipe for magic. We’ve trained thousands of students in our Pilates method, who have gone on to teach and lead at studios all over the world. The best part? We hear the same thing time and time again: our Pilates Mat trainings are truly something special. That’s because we don’t just teach the repertoire. You’ll learn all the exercises of course, but more importantly, you’ll learn how to sequence your classes with dynamic layering, seamless transitions, and fun variations. You’ll learn not just what to teach, but why and how. And as a result, you’ll graduate knowing how to design flowing, feel-good, fun Pilates classes that your clients will love you for.

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!


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!


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!
