Modular Schedule

Each course module(PP/Mat1/Rehab4 etc) are 2 days , 16 hours in duration. Courses are scheduled on weekends (as often as possible), about a month apart, minimizing time away from home and work. The time between courses facilitates study, observation and practice, allowing you to master the material before continuing to the next module.

Where appropriate, module credits are applied to enable students to accumulate a varied and wide Pilates knowledge base. Polestar Pilates Qualifications are designed to successfully bring you to a level of mastery, preparing you to become a competent Pilates Practitioner in the training method of your choice (Studio, Mat, Reformer and Rehabilitation). Polestar's competency exams measure your ability to justify your exercise selections or treatment plan.
