THE REAL PILATES TEACHER TRAINING
STARTS MAY 2016!
JOIN THE METHOD THAT INSPIRES CHANGE
I met Alycea Ungaro several years ago after taking one of her workshops at The Pilates Method Alliance conference and would forever become a fan. Her presentation, open dialogue, and straightforward no-nonsense style spoke to me. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always leave continuing education feeling like I have new tools or practical application. But her workshop helped me create one of our most loved classes, the Mechanic. I have 5 (yes 5) Pilates certifications under my belt. I am a bit of what you call an education junkie. I love learning and I am a total Pilates nerd! So when I say that Alycea’s Real Pilates Teacher Training programis the most in-depth, comprehensive program I have ever seen, I mean it! In an industry where teacher training programs are moving to be faster, easier, with a less is more kind of programming, Alycea is running in the opposition direction. She is taking us back to the level of education that truly provides a lifetime of rewards and a career anywhere in the world. Real Pilates Teacher Training is the Harvard of Pilates education.
Why become a Pilates Instructor? I can speak personally about how much Pilates has changed my life. I became a teacher nearly 15 years ago, and have never looked back! Watching Pilates change peoples’ lives and being active while doing what I love, all while setting my own hours, has been crucial to my being able to have a fulfilling career and also being a mom of two. I often tell people that Pilates taught me what I was made of, inside and out. It showed me the strength I had, and helped me find my voice and my confidence. I love knowing that I am preserving a method that is over a 100 years old and is still proving to be the best functional strength training out there!

MEET THE WOMAN BEHIND THE METHOD
A pioneer of the Pilates method, Alycea Ungaro brought some of the very first Pilates mat classes to New York City. Her signature work and expert products have been growing and shaping the industry for decades.
Alycea expanded her popular Pilates classes into a fitness media empire. Her first multi-media project was the innovative Portable PilatesTM, an easy-to-use at-home mat workout. Best selling titles followed including; Pilates: Body in Motion, published in 2002, The Pilates Promise published in 2004, and The Pilates Practice Companion. Alycea has trained scores of celebrities including Madonna, Uma Thurman, Kyra Sedgwick, Claire Danes, and Molly Sims. Together with long-time client Christy Turlington, Alycea collaborated on a “Pilates Booty” for Puma. The booty was aptly named “The Alycea.”
The New York Times has hailed Alycea’s Pilates Apps as the best on the market. In 2012 Alycea launched the now popular SpringTone® class in her New York studio. SpringTone® is now licensed internationally to studios and trainers. 2013 saw the launch of Synthesis, Alycea’s Mentor Project which was designed to merge Pilates technique and business strategies into a unique learning platform for an exclusive group of studio owners. The Synthesis Mentor program runs annually. The latest addition to the Real Pilates roster of offerings is the comprehensive teacher training program where Alycea and her stellar team are grooming the next generation of Pilates teachers. When she isn’t training or teaching, Alycea is busy writing articles as the resident Pilates expert on About.com.
