Rhinebeck Pilates is currently the only studio in the US outside of New York City where Sean Gallagher is teaching The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Training Program. This program is open to Bridge participants as well as the fully comprehensive program. The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Training program is the original and longest running comprehensive pilates training program in the world, first originated by Joseph Pilates himself, and later taught by Romana Kryzanowska and run by Sean Gallagher. Today, Sean continues the legacy of the program with training centers in NYC, Rhinebeck, Greece, Brazil, Isreal, and Mexico. The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Training program consists of two phases. Phase one is academic study throughout the Seminar Series, followed by phase two, the apprentice program. The seminar series were designed to teach the philosophical, technical, and academic study pedagogical aspects of Authentic Pilates™. Students are taught beginning, intermediate, and advanced-level movements for each apparatus. The movements are demanding, and you must be in good physical condition to participate. You must also be relatively active with decent flexibility and some sense of your body. *A pre-requisite of 35 private sessions is required before training begins for this reason. This program requires a total of 600 apprenticeship hours with a Pilates Guild® certified Teacher of Teachers or Training Center Director, in a Certification Center. The 600 hours of apprenticeship are organized as follows: First 200 hrs: Observation and practice Second 200 hrs: Assisting a certified Pilates Guild® Instructor Third 200 hrs: Teaching solo under the supervision of a certified Pilates Guild® Instructor. Exams are given at the completion of each 200 hours. The three exams given are on the following systems and in the following order: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. The final exam consists of a practical and written test. Additional details and information about the training program are available online at Rhinebeckpilates.com
