I researched a plethora of teacher training programs before finally enrolling in the Excel Pilates Teacher Training Program at the NoVA studio. Knowing that I would be studying under Alexandra Adams sealed the deal. The education I received under Alexandra exceeded my expectations. Not only did I receive comprehensive tutelage in the methodology of classical Pilates, but Alexandra ensured that I was fluent in functional anatomy and the history of Pilates. Yes, the year-long process was very demanding, but I was able to complete the program as a mother of two young children. Everything I learned while enrolled in the program has made me confident enough to teach a variety of clients with varying needs. Additionally, the studio’s clients and instructors were very accommodating when it came to my observation and teaching hours. After I graduated from the program and began teaching, someone stated that they saw some of Alexandra in my teaching; in my opinion, there is no higher compliment than that. If you are contemplating teacher training in the Pilates method, just stop right here…it is the best program!
