The Intermediate Mat course introduces new vocabulary and exercises and includes a more in-depth discussion of the Pilates principles behind exercise order and progression. Key teaching concepts presented during the course expand on techniques for effective instruction, including imagery cues, effective touch techniques and correcting, and contraindications for exercises. Attendees must have completed the Peak Pilates® Basic Mat Course before enrolling and we recommend current CPR/AED and First Aid certifications. A Peak Pilates® Intermediate Mat Certificate is issued to instructors who pass all assessments and submit the required logged hours.
