THE Program

THE NEXT LEVEL has come out of Carmen's many years of study with various teachers and lineages of Joseph Pilates. She has trained specifically with teachers under Eve Gentry, Romana Kryzanowska and is currently a student of 1st generation pilates teacher Jay Grimes. As a student of pilates, Carmen is familiar with the work and energy required to be a successful practitioner of pilates. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is a mentorship-based program. It is designed for those pilates practitioners who are want to deepen their understanding of Joseph Pilates' work. It is an opportunity to be fully immersed in his philosophy and training. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is for those who have already graduated from a full teacher certification program. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is to guide, rather than teach the pilates practitioner. It is by way of consistent training, learning and listening that the student will grow deeper in understanding the brilliant work of Joseph Pilates. 

THE NEXT LEVEL is comprised of 4 modules presented in order to develop the necessary progression of learning for the practitioner. 

THE NEXT LEVEL applicant MUST PASS each module of assessment. Gaining entrance into THE NEXT LEVEL does not automatically guarantee the student into all the modules. A student may require more practice and be asked to wait until the next year's rotation of the module. Practice is what will take the student to the next level in the work.

THE NEXT LEVEL will consider a pilates practitioner with a minimum of two years of teaching pilates. Time spent working training at Aligned Pilates prior to the application is strongly recommended for consideration. A minimum of 20 in-studio privates or on-line Skype lessons are the recommended minimum for those considering applying for THE NEXT LEVEL

THE NEXT LEVEL will accept 1 to 4 students each year.





THE NEXT LEVEL modules will take place 4 times from mid January to mid November. THE NEXT LEVEL schedule will be from mid week to mid week with the Intensive Module weekend in-between. The time of each module will be spent in observation, privates, AP classes, and themed workshops.
