Completing this program was one of the best investments I could have possibly made in pursuing a career teaching Pilates.

The comprehensive curriculum encompassed fundamental Pilates principles, biomechanics and anatomy, mat and apparatus choreography, and specific populations training. We learned techniques of understanding body reading and fascial patterning as well as how to combine release work, therapeutics, and strength training to address, re-pattern, and prevent body imbalances. Strong mentorship and careful instruction led by Erika and other senior and master instructors insured that we are now fully prepared to develop a Pilates routine catered to any individual’s needs and goals.” —Sonja B, Graduate of the Erika Bloom Pilates Comprehensive Certification
