Drexel Pilates Training Program


Drexel Pilates Training Program

The Drexel Pilates Training Program is designed to impart the full classical Pilates repertoire through the contemporary lens of clear biomechanics, sound pedagogy, dedication, and rigor. This 450‐hour comprehensive training program ushers a cohort of Apprentices through each 1‐year cycle. The year is structured in three modules—mat work in the fall, mixed equipment in the winter, and reformer in the spring. The cycle of each module is made up of immersive training weekends, weekly practice and training hours, and evaluations that include written, performance, and pedagogy testing. Apprentices receive significant contact time as both a teacher and as a practitioner. Our objective is to yield passionate and knowledgeable teachers who perform the work at a high level of integration and have a safe, confident, comprehensive sense of themselves as Pilates educators. Founder and Director, Jennifer Morley, is supported by Leadership Team members Jessica Kroboth and Theresa Schweingruber, as well as Drexel Pilates Studio’s experienced Instructors.

The 2022-2023 DPTP will be completed in-person at the Drexel Pilates Studio. Email our program coordinator, Theresa, at if interested!
