Instructor Training - Our Philosophy

At Body Evolve, we strongly believe in educating beyond repertoire. Our goal is to create the thinking instructor. While knowing the exercises is important, understanding how to safely and appropriately apply them to individual needs is our priority.


We teach you the biomechanics of each exercise, so you can intelligently progress any client that comes your way. Body Evolve allows the student to see how Pilates can be applied to an extremely diverse clientele. We will provide you with the necessary tools to become a true Pilates professional.
