Master program

DESCRIPTION 

———————————-

The 1-st edition of Master program starts in autumn 2024.

The Master program was created for qualified Pilates instructors who want to achieve more, like challenges, believe in unlimited possibilities and want to develop their potential.
The Master program is not only a challenge, it is also knowledge about the method and its origin. The program includes original exercises created by Joseph H. Pilates and his first generation of teachers who, thanks to their passion and commitment passed on the knowledge they learned from the creator of the method and added their own experience. 

The program presents unique exercises taught by Joseph H. Pilates while he was alive, creating and developing his method. They have been preserved on archival records and in books. These exercises include exercises that map the foundations of the method and its development, as well as acrobatic and extra-advanced xercises that present the application of these foundations in an elaborate form showing the possibilities of human potential development. The master program is an insight not only into the original and archival Pilates exercises, but also an insight into the message and philosophy that the creator of the method followed to give the desired results that he writes about in his book "Return to life through Contrology", quote::

„Uniform body development…”

„….it is only through Contrology that this unique trinity of a balanced body, mind and spirit can ever be attainted.”

An important element of the course is learning the history of apparatus and inventions created by Joseph H. Pilates, practicing on them and learning about the values ​​and purpose for which they were constructed. The apparatus built by Joseph H. Pilates includes various types of: mats, chairs, barrels and small devices, as well as larger ones such as: Reformer, Cadillac and Guillotine.

The Master program introduces you to the understanding and practice of the foundations of the method at a deeper and more advanced level, helping you find answers to many questions related to the method.

The keynote of the Master program is:
“Impossible becomes possible.”

What is impossible?

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world theyve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. Its an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. Its a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing
