Welcome to
The Swissbody®
Pilates Academy

Swissbody® is a Centre of Excellence for Pilates Teacher Training and Education, which has focused on high-quality Pilates training since its inception in 1998.

It is not what we teach, but how we teach it, that makes the difference in the caliber of instructors graduating from the Swissbody® Pilates Academy. 


Why become a Pilates teacher?

Becoming a Pilates instructor is a commitment and a dedication to a set of principles and to a method that encourages a lifetime of physical and psychological development and evolution.

An accomplished teacher embodies these principles and conveys them to clients and the community in a way that cultivates a sense of well-being and personal growth. This requires an ongoing mastery of the full repertoire of Pilates exercises, along with a deep understanding of how to safely and skillfully challenge a client to achieve his or her full physical potential and mental wellbeing.

Whether you are a passionate Pilates student interested in mastering the art of teaching, or already a Pilates or movement science instructor, dance teacher, sports coach or physiotherapist seeking to advance and perfect your knowledge and fine tune your teaching skills, Swissbody® can provide you with a programme encompassing beginner through to advanced level teacher training as well as a broad range of continuing education courses to help you become an inspiring, accomplished and responsible instructor.

Cher Markus,

Par ces quelques lignes, je tiens à te remercier à nouveau pour le cours de samedi. J’ai beaucoup appris et j’apprécie énormément la manière dont tu nous transmets toutes tes connaissances. J’ai travaillé aujourd’hui avec mes clients, en commençant par la respiration magique! Les retours sont excellents! Tous ont été impressionés d’avoir fait une leçon entière de Pilates debout.
