Master’s Program


The Pilates Center’s Master’s Program is for graduates of all teacher training programs including TPC graduates. Teachers can apply for this program after they have been teaching professionally for six months. This program introduces non-TPC teacher training graduates to our teaching philosophy. For TPC’s graduates, it gives them an opportunity to take continuing education workshops that go beyond the basic teacher training programs. This is a pay as you go program. All MP students have 3 years to complete the 116 hours.

All Master’s Program students MUST complete a total of 56 hours in Boulder at The Pilates Center. If a TPC teacher is traveling, this is not acceptable for hours at The Pilates Center.
