Pilates Mat Work Teacher Training Course (MTTC) – education as a Pilates Mat teacher, including small Pilates equipment.

Rael Isacowitz regards the Mat Work as the crown jewel of the Pilates method. It is the backbone of the BASI® system; without Mat Work there would be a void.

Due to its versatility, and because it does not require special equipment, Mat Work is the perfect form of Pilates to offer at fitness centers, sports associations and sports teams. The MTTC offers an in-depth education in Mat Work exercises, as well as an understanding of the application of adaptations. Because Mat Work is the cornerstone of the foundation for all Pilates work, the MTTC is also the perfect springboard to a Comprehensive Teachers Training Course (CTTC).
