Experienced, dedicated and forward thinking, led by Studio Owner and Director Ernie Fossa and Teacher Training Program Director Kim Fielding.

Our Comprehensive Curriculum
Our Program goes well beyond just learning the exercises. With our curriculum you’ll get many hours of in-depth course lecture classroom teaching covering: Anatomy, Biomechanics, Unique Movement Principles, (UMP), (based on Anatomical and Biomechanical facts), Client Facilitation and Special Populations including over 20 medical conditions covering the spine, upper and lower extremities. This Comprehensive Curriculum will help prepare you to work with any type of client.
Our Integrated Teaching Approach
We offer a progressive way of learning and teaching the Pilates method of exercise by integrating Anatomy, Biomechanics and our Unique Movement Principles, (UMP). This integration then threads throughout both the entire Mat and Equipment choreography and facilitates your learning process to better help you understand how and why the Pilates method of exercise really works. This process will give you the opportunity to develop into becoming a more well- rounded and truly advanced Pilates Teacher.
Our Educational Standards
We have gone through a rigorous process to show our compliance with many Educational Standards in order to become an Approved PSAP Pilates School. These standards include maintaining and having available a full School Catalog that covers many important issues for you as a student. Some of these issues include admissions requirements, attendance requirements, enrollment procedures, all costs, programs and courses, refund policy, student grievance procedures, grading requirements, non discrimination policy and much more. Please take the time to download and review our School Catalog.
