The Mat Pilates Certification
There are times when the fully comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program with equipment is not suitable—whether it’s due to time commitments, level of experience, or interest. As such, Sheppard Method Pilates offers an exceptional opportunity to become a qualified, knowledgeable, and successful Instructor for the mat portion of the Pilates practice.
Mat Pilates Instructor Teacher Training is a 4-week program that leverages the introduction to full Pilates Teacher Training to provide an outstanding opportunity to train under master Pilates instructors. Mat Pilates Training students receive the highest level of education that empowers them to gain the unique skills of a mat-based program and take this forward to improve their Pilates and teaching skills.
No additional payments to use the studio for the completion of hours

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.

Risa is a wonderful teacher, not only instructing Pilates fundamentals and anatomy, but truly bringing the joy and beauty of movement through her unique choreography.
