Authentic Pilates Method for Fitness Professionals.

If you were to draw a Venn diagram with Fitness in one circle and Classical Pilates in the other, the point at which they intersect is where you’ll find Positive Action Pilates! It’s with much pleasure that I introduce Mareena and Chris and their Certificate IV in the Authentic Pilates Method.

Have you considered adding Pilates instruction to your established career? Or maybe you’re an existing Pilates teacher who would like to learn the Authentic Classical Pilates method?

The Certificate IV in the Authentic Pilates Method is the course designed for exercise professionals.

Positive Action Pilates provide the only Government recognised Certificate IV in the Authentic Classical Pilates Method. It’s also the only course that can be done in a modular format, allowing you to learn at your own pace. This gives you the freedom to begin your education with the first module in the authentic Pilates method, to learn Pilates on the Reformer if you already have a Mat qualification or you can complete the entire Certificate IV.

Modules are run in venues across Australia – or we can come to you.

In-house training at your fitness centre or studio is a great opportunity to have your staff trained by Australia’s leading Pilates training organisation. And the Certificate IV in the Authentic Pilates Method (10664NAT), is the perfect entry level qualification into the authentic Pilates method for anyone starting their Pilates career.

With strong ties to the Fitness training packages, we’re able to recognise and respect the knowledge that many fitness instructors have already gained. Exercise professionals who already have a Cert III and/or IV in fitness will most likely be granted recognition of prior learning (RPL) for many of the fitness units.

Marena and Chris Digby are the co-owners of Positive Action Pilates and have over 40 years of Pilates experience between them.

Mareena and Chris are considered both Fitness and Pilates experts. They are regularly invited to present at fitness conventions, like Filex in Australia.

In 2015 Marena and Chris were personally invited to present on Pilates at the world’s largest fitness convention; IDEA World in Los Angles.

Marena has also co-authored a book and appeared on a number of Pilates DVDs.

Simply put, it makes sense to learn from the best of the best.

As a graduate of the Certificate IV in the Authentic Pilates Method, you’ll understand the history, principles and philosophies of the original Joseph Pilates works, as taught to Chris & Marena by 1st generation and several 2nd generation ‘Romana’ teachers from the USA

You’ll also learn about the complete Pilates ‘system’, where Matwork and Reformer fit into this system and how to teach both formats effectively in group and private settings.

Goals of The Certificate IV in the Authentic Pilates Method.

  • To give you an understanding and appreciation for the Classical Pilates method
  • To prepare you to teach Pilates in a health club or studio environment
  • To provide you with the knowledge and skills to confidently teach both Pilates Mat and Reformer sessions
  • And to provide you with a tailored pathway that takes into account current skills via the recognition of prior learning
