‘I attended the very first Tula training course for Pilates level 3 mat work and I cannot praise the teaching or delivery of the training more highly. Carolyn Bailey is an amazing tutor, the group had the benefit of her extensive knowledge and years of experience, which provided us with a sound foundation for our learning and practice. The course provides opportunities for professional teaching practice at the Pilates in Brighton studio, along with exemplar classes from experienced instructors,  which were invaluable. I would recommend Tula Training to anyone with a desire to teach Pilates, I am now a qualified mat work instructor, which is something that I had dreamed of but didn’t believe was possible.’ Karen Manghan April 2016

Our Pilates Matwork Teacher Training Course is accredited by governing body, Active IQ and gives you access onto the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) at Level 3 – the recognised UK national standard. This qualification will automatically distinguish you as being trained at the highest possible standard.

I have just finished the Pilates teaching training course I only wish we had filmed students at the beginning and the end of the course. The transformation in teaching was incredible, confidence grew, bodies changed and enthusism and knowledge of the principles and fundamentals of pilates were embraced. A joy to spend time with people who want to encourage and share a passion for Pilates in order to help others.  – Julie Sept 2016

Phased Pilates Training

  • At Tula Training, we don’t believe in ‘crammed’ knowledge.
  • We believe in the more powerful and long-lasting ‘accumulative’ knowledge.

The Tula Training Level 3 Pilates Matwork Teacher Training Course has been designed for optimal learning and maximum results.

With teaching spread out across 10 days (4 long weekends) you will incrementally deepen your knowledge and have the opportunity to put each phase into practice as you learn.

This optimum teaching design also gives you the added benefit of flexibility, enabling you to accommodate your Pilates teacher training within your current work and life commitments.

This course was excellent. It was a lot of information to take in and Carolyn’s encouraging but honest teaching approach was wonderful. As I hadn’t taught before the teaching practice for me was invaluable. I learned a lot from having honest critical feed. – Adrian April 2016
