Learn the Art of Pilates.
Define Your Practice & Shape Your Future.
This is an intensive Pilates instructor training program, structured for the needs of dancers and other athletes. Occurs once a year and is open to current Calarts student, faculty, and alumni as well as the general public. This is a collaborative program between The Sheppard Method Pilates Pilates studio and the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance, and is hosted on the campus of the California Institute of the Arts.
Who We Are:
The Sheppard Method Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program is an opportunity to continue the legacy of Ron Fletcher and Joseph Pilates. Their method was originally called Body Contrology, approached as a physical program, philosophy, and an art form. Carrying on their vision, we have designed a method of teaching that consist of shadowing the master for a multi-dimensional, multi- sensory, creative learning experience that develops physical mastery and critical thinking skills.
The Sheppard Method Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training program inspires the professionalism necessary to properly and effectively teach others to achieve their personal best through the Pilates method. Attention is paid not only to the classical Pilates repertoire and technique, but also to the joy of movement and inspiration to go beyond one’s limits. The comprehensive program contains all components identified in the PMA’s minimum educational template on all apparatus and all levels of mat, as well as the 450-hour minimum.
Cal Arts Mission:
This collaboration seeks to create a lasting partnership to bridge the Sheppard Method Pilates Certification program with the CALARTS summer study program. This program will allow current and former students to broaden their personal career opportunities by earning a Certificate in Pilates Training while also continuing the legacy passed down to Risa Sheppard from Joseph Pilates and Ron Fletcher. We believe that our collaboration with the institute creates a unique opportunity to develop an environment of health, wellness, and prosperity for individual students, the department of dance, and the wider Cal Arts community.

The Sheppard Method Pilates Program has given me the foundation to become a successful Pilates Manager at the Jonathan Club, an elite private club in Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles.
With so many programs to choose from, I recommend THE SHEPPARD METHOD PILATES Certification due to Risa’s extensive experience and her dynamic teaching style.
