“Don’t let cost and culture be the barrier keeping you from pursuing your passion for Pilates. Bring Pilates to our communities! Our Pilates Teacher Training was created to increase representation while upholding educational quality so you can be a contender.”
The Black community is suffering and now more than ever we need a way to safeguard our health and future. There are only around 600 black Pilates Instructors in the world! Mostly because it has been out of our reach either financially, location or the perpetuation of a culture of exclusivity.

No, Pilates is similar in the sense that it has a mat repertoire like Yoga but we have our own unique exercises and order. Yoga moves through poses/postures whereas Pilates is more like calisthenics. We do indiviual exercises consisting of 3-10 repetitions each. A class can be 30-60 mins with up to 34+ exercises in an advanced class.
Pilates focuses on core strength, spinal health, whole body health and breath. It operates on a set of principles. Pilates is a mind body form of exercise that is not rooted in a religion.
