Good to know

Joseph Pilates founded and created the method now simply known as Pilates

Joseph Pilates trained and certified Lolita San Miguel (USA) Pilates Elder and 1st Generation Teacher

Lolita San Miguel trained and certified Sarah Harris as a 2nd Generation Master Pilates Teacher​.  Sarah also has a degree in teaching plus a qualified assessor and verifier.

Philip Harris is a chartered Physiotherapist with a masters degree, has worked with Athletes in Rugby such as the Barbarians, 2012 London Olympics, Commonwealth Games and much more.


Sarah has designed this course for you with the benefit of Philip's knowledge and experience added in. This is an actual qualification awarded through AIQ, who ensure you meet the standards and more to achieve this national framework qualification. This Level 3 Diploma is considered equal to one A'level and we will ensure you go above and beyond the minimum requirement to pass, to help you be the best teacher that you.


You will also be able to access REPs Level 3 teacher status, this will allow you to work in Health Clubs, Cruise Ships or set up by yourself. You can also register to the REP's equivalent in other countries / please note you don't have to sign up with REPs, and note it comes at a cost but some Health Clubs may require that you do.


Your might prefer to just enjoy the learning aspect of this course and not do any of the exams / written work. This means you would not be a qualified teacher but would have learnt a lot about Pilates and deepened your personal knowledge on the method.  This is absolutely fine and we are very happy to support you, the cost does not change but we will tailor our time with you to suit this need. The course is written as if you will do the exams but you can skip and move around the course to best suit you.


If you are a qualified Physio or other medical professional wanting to add Pilates to your clinic, we are also very happy to help and our team of Physio's can also offer you some support and advice on setting up clinical Pilates classes as small groups or as a 1-1 used as another treatment tool.

Philip and Sarah are husband and wife with 3 children, they own and run HMB The Atrium in Thatcham. This is a busy physio clinic and Pilates studio, there are 6 physios, 6 teachers, office staff and complimentary therapists as well as the training school team. We all practice what we preach and would love for you to visit us and join in a class and more. 

Please note that on the practical training days there could be a mixture of students, some students might be learning the Reformer or Studio Pilates repertoire
