The Body Harmonics Pilates Bridge program is available to Pilates teachers who want to transfer their existing teaching credentials from another training institution in order to advance their Pilates certification. The program is also a great fit for Pilates teachers who started their training elsewhere, and want to complete it, test out, and receive a formal certification diploma at Body Harmonics.
Body Harmonics offers bridging options for all aspects of our Pilates Comprehensive Track training—Level 1: Mat, Level 2: Reformer, Level 3: Cadillac Chair Springboard Barrels (CCSB). We recognize that each candidate’s educational background is unique. Our Bridge program is, therefore, designed to accommodate a wide variety of candidates and situations. At the same time, we want to ensure that each applicant is well prepared to continue training at the next level with Body Harmonics.
Body Harmonics uses a variety of ways to assess each candidate’s background including a review of the candidate’s application form, transcripts, credentials and other relevant documents. We also meet with you to discuss your experience and training and may ask for a demonstration of your teaching skills. Based on your experience and professional goals, we create a customized program to help you fill any missing elements. Depending on your level of training, we may require you to complete, in full or in part, aspects of our Pilates Comprehensive Track:
You may also be required to purchase training materials and complete the associated written exam and/or practical evaluation.
The Body Harmonics Bridge Program application fee is $185 CAD + tax. The cost of the 1.5 hour Bridge assessment is 142.50 + tax, in addition to the application fee. Once your program is designed, you’ll be given an estimate of the costs of completing the recommended requirements. Upon successful completion of the recommended steps, you will receive the diploma for the level of training you completed.
To keep a Body Harmonics certification diploma current, all certified teachers are required to complete 15 hours of continuing education credits (CECs) every two years. Credits can be earned by attending in combination Body Harmonics Continuing Education courses, Pilates classes or one-on-one sessions and relevant educational events through other institutions.
