Course Details:

The Peak Pilates® Classical Level I Bridge is an in-depth course that builds upon an instructor’s existing knowledge and teaching experience. The course is entirely on-demand, to be completed on your own schedule, from the convenience of your home or studio. The curriculum combines reading material, videos, practice assignments and learning activities. Digital course materials include a study guide, exercise video library, workout videos, audio lessons, and slide presentations.
