The Erika Bloom Comprehensive Pilates Certification Program

The Comprehensive Pilates Certification grants participants a complete 500+ hour Pilates mat and apparatus (Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrel) certification along with our signature Advanced Therapeutic Practitioner Program. You will graduate the program as a fully Certified Pilates Instructor but also as a Certified Advanced Therapeutic Practitioner.

Our program will provide you with in-depth knowledge of both the classical and contemporary exercises as well as additional information that is typically only found through continuing education courses. You will graduate with the tools and inspiration to teach your clients to master the exercises, change their bodies, and improve their health. Practitioners will be trained in our signature Erika Bloom Method, with an approach informed by Barteneiff, Feldenkrais, structural integration, Franklin, and somatic therapy. They will hone their skills in regard to addressing postural imbalances, touch cues, manual adjustments, body reading, fascial rolling, and special populations protocols. Following the completion of the program, practitioners will have an advanced ability to create specialized programming for clients.

The lecture portion will take place at our Manhattan flagship. Each lecture is taught by a roster of our senior instructors, special guest subject matter experts, and Erika Bloom herself.
