EHP has crafted both In-Person & Virtual Pilates Teacher Training program unlike any other in the world—suited to meet the demands of the new hybrid in-person/online teaching landscape without compromising EHP’s standards of knowledge, integrity, and professionalism.
The Ellie Herman Pilates Institute is an internationally recognized Pilates certification program offering comprehensive mat and apparatus training through academic coursework and experiential learning.
Dr. Nunez & Pearson Pilates & Bodywork are joined with EHP in the commitment to teaching students the overarching applications of all the Pilates exercises—most importantly, the contraindications—so that when they graduate, they are confident that they can apply their Pilates knowledge to all populations. From the first hour of working with a client, a Pilates instructor should be analyzing and actively involved in corrective exercise, not just going through a Pilates protocol. EHP’s students develop a critical eye for technique and exit the program fluent in the language of movement.
