Fletcher Pilates® Program of Study
The Fletcher Pilates® Program of Study is the most comprehensive and definitive international Pilates educational program of its kind. Our program derives from the physical conditioning method developed by Joseph and Clara Pilates in the 1920s and expands to include its evolution and interpretation by Pilates Master Ron Fletcher. Ensuring the consistency and continuity of the Fletcher Pilates lineage, this multi-dimensional Program of Study includes the Fletcher Pilates Preparatory Course, Fletcher Pilates Comprehensive Program made up of the Foundational and Professional Programs, as well as a variety of licensing courses and specialty continuing education.
Fletcher Pilates® Comprehensive Program
The Fletcher Pilates® Comprehensive Program is designed to give participants a thorough understanding of the complete Fletcher lineage of the Pilates method and to instill an understanding of how to teach Fletcher Pilates®. Our Comprehensive Program is divided into the Foundational and Professional Programs. Upon successful completion of the Foundational Program, students receive a Qualified Teacher Certificate and are eligible to seek employment as Pilates teachers in studio, clinic, fitness and other settings. Our Professional Program expands upon this range of knowledge to include the full Fletcher Pilates syllabus and curriculum further developing teaching and movement skills to be successful as a full-time Pilates professional, with a Fletcher Pilates® Professional Teacher Certificate. The complete range of Pilates apparatus is incorporated as well as signature Fletcher Pilates® techniques in both levels of the Program.
Preparing to Enter the Program
As it is essential for participants to learn and know the Fletcher Pilates® method and technique in their own bodies before learning to teach this work to others, applicants are required to complete at least 30 private sessions, the Preparatory Course before entering the Comprehensive Program. The Fletcher Pilates® Preparatory Course (described below) can be substituted by 30 hours of private sessions or group classes if the Prep Course is unavailable. The full prerequisite student process generally takes three to six months of concentrated study. Prerequisite requirements will be modified for those who have completed another comprehensive Pilates teacher training program.
Our Preparatory Course is designed to give students an overview of the Fletcher Pilates® syllabus from a student’s point of view. Based on Ron Fletcher’s philosophy of “knowing movement in the body,” the Preparatory Course encourages experiencing each piece of movement before entering the Foundational Program to learn to teach it. Structured as a 30-hour program, the Preparatory Course is the most efficient and affordable means of reviewing the Fletcher Pilates® syllabus. The Preparatory Course is taught exclusively by our Fletcher Faculty who mentor and prepare students to enter the Comprehensive Program —from application through completion.
