STOTT PILATES® Intensive Mat-Plus™ – IMP

The STOTT PILATES® Intensive Mat-Plus Course is for students who are already working in the fields of fitness or movement, as well as those who want a career change and whose schedule does not allow them to devote the time necessary for our complete Comprehensive Program

This 40-hour course is usually given over 3- 4 weekends or ten days.

This training will allow you to plan and guide private sessions or group classes with the STOTT PILATES Level 1 (essential and intermediate) repertoire of exercices for a wide range of clients.

You will leave with a solid foundation and required skills to develop effective and motivating Pilates Matwork programs.

* Although it is preferable to complete the anatomy course before your first class, it is possible to take the course at the same time or within a reasonable time frame.

** While It is better to complete the IMP course before the IR course, the reverse can also be done.

The practice logs must be submitted on your exam date (either written or practical exam). If the student fails to submit all the logs within 7 days from the last portion of the exam, the entire exam will be void.
