Kristin Schley, faculty for Pure Body Teacher Training and the Anatomy Teacher for PBTT has been teaching for many years and brings her thoughtful approach to the classical work and anatomy expertise to each course she teaches.


PBTT is a very comprehensive teacher training program. As such, our students and graduates are prepared for nearly any situation that might arise in a Pilates studio. It takes about one year to complete a course. That said, often our students have full-time jobs or other time constraints, in which case they are welcome to take longer to finish their program. Many of our students are working as apprentice teachers while completing their hours.

Required: 600 hours of combined observation, student teaching and practice. Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 at a college level or equivalent before the practicum. We have a course that meets this requirement – see our registration page for information on The Lab | Anatomy or see our FAQ page for a way to do the anatomy requirement for free. You may begin your hours as soon as you register.
