All registrants who successfully complete the registration steps for a Pilates certification program or Continuing Education course, including the payment, receive an enrolment confirmation and receipt by email. If you do not see the confirmation and receipt in your inbox shortly after you enrol, please check your spam filter.
If you did not receive the enrolment confirmation and receipt, please contact our Education Team as soon as possible.
If you registered for a Pilates certification program or Continuing Education course that will be streamed live from Toronto, Canada, the Zoom link will be emailed to you closer to the start date. That email will include the Continuing Education course handout and slides (if applicable). The Pilates certification program materials will be shipped to each registrant via Canada Post.
If you registered for a Pilates certification program or Continuing Education course scheduled at one of our affiliated Education Centres, our Education Partner will provide you with the materials as well as the Zoom link for a virtual event or in-studio attendance protocols for an in-person event closer to the start date.
If your employer is paying for your registration and needs an invoice, please reach out to our Education Coordinator for arrangements.
We offer several preferential pricing arrangements, as outlined below.
Full-time students, who are currently enrolled in a college or university program, save 15% on total program or course cost (before tax). To claim the savings, candidates must send a copy of their student ID to our Education Coordinator.
Professional dancers who are currently in a career transition save 15% on total program or course cost (before tax). To claim the savings, candidates must send a copy of their membership with a professional dancer association (i.e. CDA, CADA) to our Education Coordinator.
Our Education alumni may repeat any Pilates certification program (minimum one full module) or Continuing Education course (full length) as many times as they want at the audit rate that equals 50% of the regular cost. Please contact our Education Coordinator for arrangements.
English is the language of instruction and examination at the Body Harmonics Education Centre in Toronto, Canada, as well as our affiliated Education Centres across Canada (except Quebec where curriculum is delivered in French), in the US, the UK and Bali. While we always welcome students from different countries of origin into our Pilates & Movement Education, advanced English language ability is key for success in our Pilates certification programs (Pilates Level 1: Mat, Level 2: Reformer, and Level 3: CCSB).
Body Harmonics English language requirements are based on the definition of “advanced language ability” as described in Canadian Language Benchmarks, English as a Second Language for Adults by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, October 2021 Edition:
“Advanced language ability encompasses abilities required to communicate effectively, appropriately, accurately and fluently about most topics in a wide range of contexts and situations, from predictable to unfamiliar, from general to professionally complex and from specific to nuanced, in communicatively demanding contexts. […] At this stage, communicating can involve using language within high-stakes or high-risk social, academic and work-related contexts, and in situations in which features of the communication (such as diplomacy, tact, precision) can have significant consequences.”
If you’re unsure whether your English language ability is sufficient to study and graduate successfully from our Pilates certification programs, please email us to book a phone call to discuss.

Cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to email@example.com.
Note: To avoid the cancellation charges, you may accept a credit in lieu of a refund when you cancel your registration. You can use the credit for any purchases at Body Harmonics with the exception of the items sold on our BHOD platform (i.e. memberships and e-books).
If you are unable to attend a virtual Continuing Education course in real time, we will send you the link for a video replay as soon as it’s ready. You will be able to replay the video as many times as you wish for the next three months.
If you’re taking a virtual Pilates certification program, you must participate in real time during all the scheduled hours in order to fulfil the certification requirements.
Once you successfully complete all the requirements of any level of Body Harmonics Pilates Comprehensive Track, you will receive an official certification diploma via email.
Certificates of attendance from the Canadian-based Continuing Education courses are available for downloading the following week after the course date. For courses delivered internationally, we will email your certificate of attendance within the next two business weeks following the course date.
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.
If an accident, illness or other circumstance prevents you from completing one of our Pilates certification programs, you may take a leave of absence and join the same program running on lates dates when you are ready. Your funds will be kept as a credit on file. No re-administration fees apply. If you permanently withdraw from the program, you will be charged for the hours you have completed. The rest of your tuition and exam fees will be refunded. Program materials are non-refundable.
At Body Harmonics we are committed to providing an environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. No applicant will be denied on the basis of race, natural origin, colour, creed, religion, sex, age, disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.

Body Harmonics recognizes the effort required by Education students to meet their educational goals. At the same time, students are expected to:
To fully benefit from any of our Pilates certification programs, it is best to commit to the entire time frame allotted. If you happen to miss an hour or more, our Coordinator can help you schedule a private tutorial to make up the missed time. This tutorial is an extra cost and should be completed before re-joining the program. Body Harmonics reserves the right to take appropriate action if conduct guidelines are contravened. The first step would be to meet and discuss the situation. In the absence of progress after discussion, Body Harmonics may consider more serious options, including suspension from the program without refund.
At Body Harmonics we are committed to ensuring that students with a grievance relating to their experience in any of our educational events are well taken care of. For more information about our Grievance Procedure, please contact our Education team.
If fewer than four people register for a course it may be cancelled, typically with one week notice, so you can plan accordingly. In some cases you may be able to complete the course privately or semi-privately. Our Education team will contact you for assistance.
Teacher trainers may be changed without notice.
Body Harmonics is the only exercise system that’s kept me motivated year after year. I can’t imagine life without it.
