The LBP-CTTP program is designed to prepare students to become comprehensively certified Pilates Teachers and prepare them for a career in Pilates. It is a unique program in the sense that students will work very closely with LiveBy Pilates teachers and receive hands on training throughout the full length of the course and not just through the time allocated for lectures. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with LiveBy Pilates clients, developing knowledge through observing and assisting teachers whenever possible. The LBP-CTTP program includes a thorough and comprehensive education in the Pilates principles and the fundamental, intermediate and advanced repertoire on the Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector, Ped-a-pul and various auxiliary apparatus.

By completing this program, you will receive a LiveBy Pilates Comprehensive Pilates Teachercertification and be eligible to work as a certified teacher at LiveBy Pilates or choose to start your Pilates career elsewhere. You will also be eligible to take the PMA Pilates Certification Exam.
