how we’re different

Our Mat Teacher Training program is wonderful. We’re different from the rest. Here’s how:

We provide a working studio for students to learn and observe.
Oftentimes, someone who is taking a teacher training program must go request observation hours at other studios. We don’t have that obstacle here at Tone. Additionally, Tone offers
a widely varied staff and schedule, so the classes and teaching skills observed are very unique.

Our program teachers are Pilates professionals who dedicate their time to the profession—not folks who are in it for a few hours per week.

We love to create a true community feel amongst the students of the course. In yoga, this is called sangha.

We frequently hire FROM our program. Completing our program is not a guarantee that you will gain a position at Tone, but it’s certainly a foot in the door!
