Welcome to Modern Pilates

 

We specialise in turning your passion for Pilates into an exciting new career opportunity. Whether your interest is just a hobby, or you are a fitness or health professional, we will nurture, support and teach you the skills you need to become a successful Clinical Contemporary Matwork Pilates Teacher.

 

About Us

 

The company was originally started by Award Winning founder and Director of Training, Christine North-Minchella, who also achieved Centre of Excellence status. Christine has been actively involved in the industry for over 48 years and has been instrumental in pioneering the development of health, fitness and Pilates training courses in the UK and abroad.

 

Our unique contemporary clinical approach to Pilates training was created in consultation with physiotherapist and author Christopher Norris MSc MCSP.  Our method of Pilates looks at functional stability, postural alignment, core stability and modifications of the original works of Joseph Pilates.  This combination of all approaches brings you the respected Modern 'clinical' Pilates training programme.

 

Why Choose Modern Pilates Training?

 

Modern Pilates is a respected and reputable training organisation and is trusted within the industry. Our contemporary, clinical courses will give you a sound and solid foundation to be a successful Modern Pilates teacher.

 

•Bringing Joseph Pilates’ Classical approach into the 21st century by combining his principles with recent research

•Our clinical approach has been devised and is taught by physiotherapists

•Our tutors are Pilates practitioners who run their own successful businesses

•Small groups of students enabling more individual and personal tuition

What is the difference between Classical and Contemporary Pilates?

 

•Classical Pilates follows as closely as possible to Joseph Pilates' original work, his exercises and the order in which they were performed

•Contemporary Pilates is based partly on Joseph Pilates' work but with modifications to the exercises so that they fit with modern research  

•Modern Pilates is unique as it offers contemporary Pilates with a clinical approach as our exercises have been designed in conjunction with physiotherapists and recent research. Many of the exercises remain the same but allowances are made for injury rehabilitation and creativity by the teacher
