A toolbox full of Pilates

“Pilates is a journey with no destination”, like my teacher Jay Grimes likes to say, and that’s true. There’s only that much that can be taught in one year. That’s why I have created the “Next” Program. Students, who are looking to enhance their training are invited to further their knowledge by signing up for the the “Next” Program.

“I am the kind of person who likes to shop around; I’ll try on everything in the store before I settle on an item. When I decided to become a Pilates instructor, I planned to take a class from each studio before settling on a program. Instead, I took one lesson from Rebekka and knew this was the person I wanted to learn from. It was the hardest workout of my life, but I’d never felt better—sore, but only in the right places. I thought I knew what Pilates was about, but Rebekka has a way of making even advanced students feel like beginners. In her teacher training program, I not only learned the exercises themselves, but also how to draw more out of my clients.She’s the perfect person to learn from: always kind and generous, but also exact and exacting, cultivating trainees who maintain the same level of excellence she does. I’ve never learned more from any other instructor and it is a privilege to continue studying from her.”

“When deciding on which Pilates program to enroll in, I did heavy research to find a trainer with a classical foundation and Rebekka’s foundation and knowledge of the classical Pilates work is strong. Each exercise was taught with thorough detail including in depth explanations of how to teach to different levels of clients, and how to teach variations and modifications appropriately.

I needed a program that would give me a strong foundation to build a successful career and clientele list and thanks to Rebekka’s training, I have a waitlist of people filling a wanting to book sessions with me. I would highly recommend this training program to anyone who is looking for a long term career as a Pilates trainer.”

“My Pilates career began in 2013 with Rebekka Schulze. As my mentor she has given me the gift and knowledge of Pilates that I will carry with me the rest of my life. I believe my training with Rebekka has been life changing and has given me the taste and drive to learn even more about the human body and how Pilates transforms mind, spirit and body.
Rebekka’s knowledge of the human body, the history and meaning of Pilates as well as her love for teaching makes her the best and very sought after instructor and trainer. I feel very fortunate to have worked with Rebekka for the last several years.

I strive to be an instructor and trainer that Rebekka is proud to say she mentored and I feel a great responsibility to share ‘the work” as authentically as I can.”
