Course participants can complete all hours at home/online, at other studios, or use Evolution Pilates studio. It is recommended that at least half of your hours be live classes.

● Five mat classes will be given during the course which can count toward your 15 personal practice hours. We invite you to use our studio for other personal practice hours and practice teaching, as space allows. We will organize a community mat class at the studio where participants can practice teaching on each other and guests. These community classes will be by donation only and you will not be paid for teaching while you are completing your coursework.

● Teaching hours should include work with at least three different students. All visitors to the studio must sign liability waivers.

● To complete the course you must participate in a written and a practical test out. A certified teacher will observe and mentor you upon completion of your hours. This will be your practical test. The written test can be scheduled once you finish your hours as well.
