• For those who are new to Pilates, enthusiasts, apprentices or teachers, please feel free to call Peter and ask about Classical Pilates. If you’re in the Philadelphia area or, elsewhere in the country when Peter travels as a guest teacher, schedule a lesson and/or enroll in an educational workshop to truly feel how living the movement makes the difference! He is available to travel to your location.

• Although it is best to train two or more times per week with an experienced traditional instructor– see the Instructor Directory for a list of over 1,400 instructors worldwide– after a while you can practice on your own. Even a good 10-15 minute Classical Pilates workout 3 per week can help sustain good fitness conditioning. Joseph Pilates wanted students to develop self-sufficiency. Giving yourself a workout also reduces time and cost.

• For instructors worldwide, Peter offers training to fulfill continuing education requirements and he provides Classical Pilates CE certificates directly to participants. Workshops and lessons may be scheduled at your studio or another facility.
