In some circumstances, for those who are teaching Pilates Matwork without evidence of an awarding body certification we will consider evidence of having attended a recognised Pilates Matwork course in conjunction with current evidence from a UK insurer that you are insured by them to be teaching Pilates Matwork.

In cases where experienced attendees of Pilates equipment classes or those home users with their own Pilates equipment wish to attend this workshop,  this will be possible from the perspective of gaining personal knowledge, however no accreditation, listing on websites or certification will be offered at the end of the course. 

Those intending upon teaching the repertoirre within this course to clients as opposed to learning it for their own personal use are highly recommended to have first attended the Mbodies Pilates Studio Induction course as without this it is possible that they would not be insured by their insurers without being able to demonstrate knowledge of the safety aspects of studio pilates and the apparatus being used.
