Beginner Mat Pilates Certification Course

Sanctuary Yoga Studios is pleased to announce another facet to their teaching curriculum. Nancy Mahon, owner of Sanctuary Yoga Studio, explains, "As a teaching school we want to offer classes, workshops and subtle tools to compliment the practice of yoga. Pilates is a natural fit for our studio and community of students. We have partnered with Jumping Frog Pilates Studio to bring this into fruition. Their program is top notch, comprehensive and complete. We are very happy to see it finally become available to anyone who wished to become a mat certified Pilates instructor.”

Sanctuary Yoga Studios will host a “Beginner Mat Pilates Certification Course” on November 16 and 17 from 1 to 7 p.m. both days.

Jessica Spillane, owner of Jumping Frog Pilates Studio notes, "Joe Pilates was a devoted yogi. The classical Pilates method is a love letter to yoga. Increase your core knowledge, diversify your sessions, and understand how Pilates and yoga are beautiful complements to your body or your career."

This mat certification course is designed for students who do not have the time or resources to study the comprehensive course, or those in locations without Pilates equipment. “There is no part of the Pilates system that exemplifies the principles of the method, particularly flow, quite as well as the mat work,” says Spillane.

Tuition: $750. Must register by November 9. Limited to 24 participants. Location: Sanctuary Yoga Studios, 132 Park Ave., New City. To register, call 548-1090 or visit
