Simmone is a Mentor for Polestar Pilates Education Australia. Becoming an RTO qualified Pilates teacher is one of the biggest investments financially, mentally and physically that you will undertake in your Pilates career. Our Studio welcomes students completing Pilates training through all Australian government RTO courses recognised by the Pilates Alliance of Australasia.
Why do we only accept RTO course students? To support our industry. There are many courses available and whilst it may be tempting to get everything done sooner and at less financial investment, in the end you will not come away with a Nationally Recognised Certification or the skills required to work with your clients in a safe and knowledge based setting. We suggest consulting with the Pilates Alliance of Australasia for a list of current Government RTO Pilates Teacher Training courses.

The following is to provide you with general information regarding what our Studio can offer students and what will be required by you during your study time.

We suggest that you be highly organised to gain the most from your hour session as this is not a private lesson, this is time for you to work on your skills as a teacher in preparation for your examinations.

Assistant teaching for required logbook hours: Have at least 2 to 3 movements that you wish to practice giving the instructor at least 48 hours notice of which movements you wish to teach so they can be worked into a session program. We encourage you to be organized and comfortable with the movements you are wanting to teach. There is no cost involved for these hours.
Self- mastery for required logbook hours: The cost is as per the set session rate.
Teaching self-arranged for required logbook hours: The Studio may be available to students wising to practice their teaching skills in their own time to friends, family or other students.
