Introduction

Download your Studio Reformer Info Sheet Here

This exciting new Pilates Reformer Instructor training course will give you all the tools you need to safely and effectively teach through the MK Pilates repertoire (stage 01 to stage 02) to all levels on the Studio Reformer. You can also combine this training with your Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Mat Pilates and take the option of the extended diploma to enhance your repertoire of exercises both for the mat and the reformer. 

We give you all you need to safely and effectively teach your client through the MK Pilates repertoire to all levels in a One to One personal training environment and in small group reformer sessions with sample progressive programmes provided.

Why Choose Drummond Education/MK Pilates?

When deciding who to take your Studio Reformer Instructor training with, it is important to understand the delivery of the course and which repertoire will be taught. A frequently asked question is should I train on the reformer using the ’Traditional/Classical’ repertoire or the more modern ‘Contemporary’ repertoire. Our answer to that question is your course provider should offer you both. Why? Contemporary takes the traditional repertoire and modifies it for a more modern contemporary approach. We believe that to adapt and modify exercises for your clients well, you should firstly know and understand the full repertoire as part of the apparatus system then you can take all of your knowledge and skills into the adaptations, contemporary changes and modifications. Drummond Education offer a course that does exactly this. Built with the expertise of one of the introducers of Pilates to the UK, Michael King using the traditional repertoire and developed with the Drummond clinical training team to meet the needs of modern day clients and their ever growing needs. On the Drummond course you are taught the best of both worlds. Why limit yourself to just one of these options. 

You can build this up to gain your fully comprehensive certificate if you want to learn how to teach on the whole of the apparatus system or you can take the course as the stand alone reformer certification. Within the Drummond/MK certification you gain your stage one and stage two reformer certification. You can also add your group reformer training day or your therapy reformer if you would like to teach either of these target groups. It is important to add these if you see yourself working in larger reformer groups or with clients with musculoskeletal conditions. You can add them now or later. 

What do students who have taken our course say about us?

It was a fabulous course. It was so interesting and valuable for personal development as well as looking at it with a teachers eye. It wasn’t an overload of information but was challenging. It was great to be with a like-minded group with different backgrounds where we focussed on working together and helped each other but had fun along the way. The studio and facilities are superb as well as spotless. Your teaching style is so engaging and there was not one point where I thought what time is it – not even for lunch. It was great. I also wanted to say all instructions from the office have been great with a friendly delivery. It made me feel relaxed about coming and prepared for starting the course. (Isabelle 2023)
