The Method Pilates continues to stay ahead of the education curve. Our certification program is more comprehensive than ever before by providing students with an online teacher-to-teacher experience while maintaining valuable in-studio study.

Evolution 101 Online is our gateway to Matwork and Apparatus training. This course can also stand alone as continuing education for all fitness professionals.

Evolution 101

Evolution 101 Online covers TheMethod® Pilates Fundamentals & Pilates Exercises. We begin with the 27 Fundamentals, as they encourage proper form and deeper understanding of Pilates exercises. After two decades of teaching the Fundamentals, we have synthesized their application so you can feel the movement biomechanics. You will learn that the Fundamentals are not only the cues but also the basis of every individual Pilates exercise: spinal and limb movements are applied variations of these basics. The focus on Fundamentals as the backbone of the entire catalog of Pilates movement is what sets TheMethod® Pilates apart from other certification programs.

Even if you have done Initiation 101 – our original level 1 Matwork course – or other Matwork certifications, you will benefit from the expanded content and new material of Evolution 101 and 201. Teachers find that the cinematography allows students to see the intricate Fundamental movements even more clearly than in person. PhysicalMind Certified teachers receive 2 CECS for this online course. ACE-certified instructors receive 0.6 hours.

“Very clear, easy to follow and very instructive…The new program is fabulous. I haven’t seen better.”
-Dorothy Curnow, Nowra Pilates Studio
